Wow, it was a rainy day about two years ago, we were looking for something inside to do... no good movies. We saw that there was a RV show going on downtown so we said what the heck, we can walk around for a while.
We had a great time walking around talking with the lookers (most had RV experience), spoke to a few sales people. This was the first time we had ever walked into a RV of any kind.
We started noticing travel trailers, motor homes, etc. rolling down the highway. We started questioning each other, was that a gas or diesel coach? Was that a fiver or travel trailer, class C or was it a B. This went off and on for a year, we always looked as one went by.
About a year later we started stopping and looking at RV lots, we even started looking when we were out of town. Caught a couple more RV shows in other cities. Talked to hundreds of RV owners.
Six months ago we went on two vacations that our dog came home infested with fleas. None of our dogs have ever had flea problems, we had to hit a couple pet friendly hotels in a row that were not well kept (we don't stay in cheap hotels either).
My wife suggested we consider an RV more seriously. We really thought we wanted a fifth wheel, already picked one out and a new truck.
We then noticed that there were some very nice places not far from where we live but they are "class A motorhome resorts". We changed up and started looking at class A gas coaches less than 35 feet (want to get in all parks as well).
Within a few more months we made a choice, a new 2016 Jayco gas coach that is 32' in length. We decided we will try it for two years and then decide if we "love it or leave it". We have had our first and only RV vacation last month and we loved it! So much fun, we really like the people we met!
We love cooking out, sitting under the stars, having our little boy(dog) with us, meeting new people with a common interest.
We have a little longer vacation scheduled the end of this month... we can't wait! I'm guessing a DP in our future, better wait two years though, my wife will enforce that
