We have been thinking about purchasing eithere a 5th wheel motorhome for some time. We haven't had experience with either one. I know they are really worlds apart in a lot of ways but in a general way still similar. Regardless we had the chance to us a friends 32ft. class A Coachman gasser. It has been a great experience. A lot of fun as well as being very educational as to what we may or may not want. We did not pull a vehicle so that became a clear need if you want to get out and see other things. We are currently just outside of Yosemite and not having transportation to the park is not fun. We are staying in full service RV parks along the way which is obviously a great way to "camp" (can I really call it that?). It's also a great way to contrast and compare with other campers. So far so good with this experiment.....for seeing how the non-tent campers do things as wells as gainging some great practicle experience.

Well, the trip has continued with some great experiences. We had reservations to stay at Bodega Bay RV and I would certainly NOT recomend that partk at all. We decided not to stay there after seeing it. Since we are traveling with a 3 year old and not pulling a T.V. we are relying on part services or close by activities. Besides the lack of amenities there the park really isn't very nice, not to mention the park staff being very freindly. Perhaps it was because we had a small child with us, but I certainly got the impression that we were not the type of RV'ers that they really wanted. So we drove on up the coast and are staying at the Manchester KOA. This is a great place with very friendly and helpful staff as well as very clean camp sites.
