If you like to camp and putter around the workshop, consider making your own travel trailer. This could be a great project to occupy winter days--and weeks--giving you time to customize the rig while thinking about warm weather and places to go.
You will need a very well ventilated workshop since you will be welding and using torches that take oxygen out of the room. Check with your local state's DMV on registration rules and laws for your custom trailer.
