Wife and I are thinking about renting or purchasing an RV to help as a temporary living situation with our upcoming PCS to Bragg. Considering this as it would give us immediate (Although temporary) housing and a chance to learn the area and get settled before getting into a house up there. It’s just me her and our 2 year old daughter. Any advice or anything we should consider as well? Any advice helps.

Renting an RV is more expensive then buying if you're looking at a month or more. Get a solid used RV and at the end of the move, you still have an RV!

I agree renting for the short haul is good enough, but for the long haul look at the $$$$$.
I rented one for a week trip from Denver to Las Vegas and enjoyed it but it cost a lot.

besides, there is no telling how long it will take to find permanent housing

Make sure there are parks that will take RV's and buy an older one before renting...very expensive to rent!

As MSG Luke said check the off limit establishments. Fort Bragg has Camp Grounds that offer full hookups. Check the Fort Bragg MWR page for more details. I don’t think they are taking any reservations right now because of the whole COVID19 stuff. Good luck! The wife and I are going to do it full time when we PCS!

And I highly recommend not renting an RV. They are very expensive to rent. An investment you can use in the future is way more worthwhile.
