Hi Everyone -

Just sold our TT, and made the plunge and bought a 1999 Coachmen Catalina 35' Class A. We went out last weekend and had a wonderful time. We have been reading about Class A's now for years, but, as a lot of young families can agree, had to "work up" to a Class A in the financing department

We actually purchased our new-to-us MH off Ebay, from a wonderful company called AZ RV Outlet. They are local here but sell all RV's online thru Ebay. We were able to drive over and look at the MH BEFORE we bid, which made it easier as we wouldn't have bought something this expensive sight-unseen.

Now we know what everyone was talking about in regards to how fun it is to travel in a Class A! The view & comfort while driving is amazing (love the flush floor all the way thru). Ours is a wide-body model with no slide, and this fits us great. We had agreed we'd either get a MH with a slide, or if no slide, only a wide body. We are thrilled with the way the MH drives.

Gee, can ya tell we love it??? We are looking forward to MANY trips, both short & long and the boys have even starting talking/planning on numerous trips

Congratulations,tiniree. Glad to hear you are enjoying your new motorhome.

We towed fifth wheels for several years but then decided to try a motorhome, after listening toseveral friends extolled the advantages time after time. We had always thought there couldn't be all that much difference, but once we tried it we were hooked. I'm not saying we couldn't or wouldn't ever go back to a trailer, but we sure like the motorhome!

Congratulations on the new acquisition. This is just the first of many great adventures yet to come. I'm sure you will love it. For us, motorhome travel is the only way to go. Far and away the best method of travel we have experienced.
