I have tried getting info elsewhere but not getting what I need.

I am interested in these states

Texas
Arkansas
Western South Dakota
Montana
Utah
Wyoming

What I want
Mountains living in them or near them
Good school system
Reasonably priced rent (paying 515$ a month for a 3 bedroom trailer right now something up to 600$ or cheaper for a 3 bedroom trailer,apartment or house is a must
Jobs-I am a truck driver with a class b cdl wife has experience in customer service and deli/bakery experience.
20k + population is a must! I prefer no college towns but am willing to consider them.

I do not know what areas of Texas are mountainous or at least not flat desert like areas the same for Utah and Wyoming.Any info on these areas are very helpful.

Consider Casper or Cheyenne in Wyoming. They are 50K plus in population and while the cost of living cannot be described as cheap, the wages in most fields keep up. I think Gillette is also around 20K and Sheridan is a little less. You aren't too far away form mountains in any of those towns, but with the exception of Sheridan they are on the plains. I'm not sure how the mines are in Gillette but if you can get on at a coal mine I think they do make pretty good money. Check out threads on Gillette to be sure. I would steer clear of Montana except maybe Billings. The wages in Montana are generally very low and do not keep up with the cost of living.

You might also check out Rapid City, SD, but keep in mind South Dakota wages are also low and often do no keep up with the cost of living.

No decent place in SLC for that rent. Maybe Idaho?
