Love the freedom of a Class B

9 months ago we transitioned from a 26 foot Class C to our 21 foot Chinook Concourse. Our reason for going a bit smaller but still sticking with a motorhome over a handicap friendly van was due to the health of my wife necessitating an option with a couch for travel, onboard restroom, fridge for medical supplies, and wanting easier day trip options.

Believe it or not, we are still camping with a family of 4 in this rig. The shorter length is awesome, allowing us to park in handicapped spots that we could never do with our C. Day trips and camping abounds. While I admit that I miss the added storage and permanent bed of our prior rig, we are enjoying so much more active with this one - giving some freedom and mobility otherwise not possible and 4 season use. This week for example was the first time for my wife to be able to swim in 4.5 years. Travel to where we went would not have been possible without a B.

I almost went the other way 9 months ago to get a 30 foot C we found, but warmed up to the idea of a B based on testimonials of others. So glad that we did. Happy travels - we continue to enjoy your stories, tech tips and more - thanks.

Glad to hear you are enjoying your class B. We picked one up in October knowing that it needed substantial work on the chassis and house, it spent November in an automotive shop and will spend much of December at an RV dealer. So, we haven't been camping in it yet but are looking forward to getting out in it in January if not December.

We have had pop-ups, travel trailers, and a class C so there's a lot of adjusting for us as we think about packing and using our new to us camper.
