In order to take our 'furry kids' with us on trips. And, to be used as a 'guest cottage' when friends and relatives come for visits.

We started with a pop-up for a short time then upgraded t-o a 5th wheel. I loved the 5th wheel for many years but as our family grew it became too small. We needed bunks and way more outside storage. Also, the setup and takedown became more and more of a hassle. We like to camp in one place as a base and explore by truck for a week or more at a time and the 5er worked for that. However, we also like to drive from one place to the next each day and the 5er was a huge hassle for that. Plus, the lack of a generator meant you had to have hookups if it was hot out. Ultimately, a motorhome made the most sense for us. I don't like the 31' and 32' class C's because it seems like a lot of motorhome for the chassis. Also, we love the basement storage of the class A. We have now had our class A for a whopping two weeks but already love it.

A Ham sandwich, a nap and a BJ anytime I want em in total comfort of home on the road.(not necessatily in that order
We are travelers more than a campers. As I got older I bacame less and less comfortable in hotel rooms. I am totally comfortable in my class A.
The bonus I never realized before I bought mine is that amazing view out that big windshield. I never new that class a motorhome was luxury travel it it's finest.

Great Question. I've enjoyed reading all the replies too. For us, a Class A seemed like the perfect solution to our wandering lifestyles - since we don't seem to "stay" in one place very long. So for us a rig payment is better than a mortgage, land taxes and assn dues and lawn care etc. Now we're free to move about the country!
AND PS: anyone interested in a 2/2 condo in Naples FL ... I'm selling mine!

Travel with best Pal

I have camped in one form or another for my whole life. As I got older it just seemed appropriate to have more comfort as I enjoy the outdoors. Now I travel alone with my best pal, Sam, a standard poodle. Sam has played in the Atlantic, the Pacific and the Gulf of Mexico and countless lakes and streams inbetween. I still stay in provincial parks and state campgrounds when they are where I want to be. I like the comfort of the motorhome and at this point, wouldn't have anything but a class A, and a DP at that.

Thanks for all the replies. I never get tired of finding out why people do what they do. It's been an interesting thread to say the least. Thanks!

It fits in my barn! I built the barn with a 12' door (duuh...). My 2007 Journey was the last year they fit under 12', as they raised the roof on them! All the newer ones are over 12' in height.
