I've owned 2 high quality Class C MH (23-25') and am considering a smaller DP (34'). We are touring travelers, not campers. Normally don't stay in one place more than 2 nights, but we want more room. I do not want to pull a toad. Any comments on making this transition? Is manuverability and parking going to be an issue? Thanks for your help.

richf, welcome to iRV2 and we hope you will come back often to share your adventures. What kind of places are you looking to visit? If National parks and open area you should not have a problem. If you want to visit those places that are in the cities and small parking lots you might find parking a challange; but with only a 34' coach it is doable. Let us know how we can help and someone with experience will be glad to.

Maneuverability isn't bad on a 34 footer - we have taken our 35 footer done many narrow roads and even dirt trails. But parking in urban areas is a whole nother story! Even in shopping malls you will take up a lot of space! Frankly, I think you will find the lack of a car to be unworkable.

A guest here at the campground here took his 37 footer in the nearby (and congested) tourist town (Camden, ME) to sight-see and have lunch and two people on the streets actually told him to take the rig back to the campground and park it! They they rented a car for the next day's sight-seeing.

So if you don't want to tow (why not?), plan on renting cars.

Or carry a scooter/small motorcycle on a platform which slides into the hitch on the back of the motorhome...
