Just starting to look...need ideas

Hello, I have just started looking for an RV and have decided to go with a TH. I will be doing both boondocking and campground camping. What are some ideas as to what I should get a 5th wheel, Class A Outlaw and both Super and C Outlaw for what I will be doing? I know a lot is up to what I like but would like to get your imput to your pros and cons on different units. I will not be fulltime but will be doing several trips both long and short while spending different amounts of time at locations.

If you get a Class A or C, you may want a toad for off-road, bad weather and when motorcycle riding is not practical.
With a 5th Wheel you have a truck for commuting around when in a campground.
A toad and truck both can be used for carrying extra stuff.
If you plan to use your RV less than 4K miles a year, then I recommend a 5th wheel as the truck to tow it can be used work and commuting. A parked Class A & C is expensive in insurance, registration and maintenance costs just sitting in storage.
In 5th wheels, check out the Cyclone as they come in many lengths and floor plans.

Towable Toy Hauler's are very nice, but you need a big truck to tow the better ones due to weight of the loaded rig. That makes your daily driver a big truck with all the big truck issues (MPG, parking, cost, etc.).

The Class C Outlaw (29H) is VERY affordable and gives many options. If they had made that RV about 10 years ago, I would have had one (have now, moved up to Class A). Can tow a small car with no problem AND fill the garage with toys. The garage becomes a multi-purpose room when unloaded and the ramp is rigged to be used as a deck/patio, with awning.

The Super C Outlaw (35SG) has been discontinued. A VERY nice RV that is still on some dealer lots at this time as 2015 models, with 10,000LB towing capability (F550 cab/chassis and Powerstroke Diesel).
I believe is was discontinued because the Super C was too close to the Class A for price point and with that tow capacity, you could just get a normal floorplan Super C (FourWinds or Chateau Super C) and bring the toys in a big trailer behind it:
2016 Four Winds Super C Motorhomes by Thor Motor Coach
and
2016 Chateau Super C RV: Class A Diesel RV by Thor Motor Coach

The Class A Outlaw makes the "A" mean awesome! It has everything we want in a RV. Tow a car - and - fill the garage with other toys. The garage on these RV's becomes a multi-purpose room when unloaded also and comes with the ramp set-up as a patio/party deck with awning too.
It has a gas engine, so it currently has a 8,500lb tow capacity. If anyone wants to tow more than that, it would not work...but there are no currently made Class A toy Haulers with any better towing specs.


Best luck
