Our first motorhome was a Class C, no slides. It was a good starter coach, we learned how deal with no inverter, limited water capacities, limited storage, and very limited living space. BUT it worked for us and we got a lot of use out of it.
After ~10 years we started looking for a DP and ended up with our Windsor.
If this coach fits your budget and is in good condition there is nothing wrong with a starter coach.
