TT vs. Class C

as one gets older and less mobile, is a Class C easier to set up/ take down than a 26 foot TT? my wife and i have a TT now and are wondering if a Class C would be easier for us to operate as we get older. I would appreciate hearing your experiences.

Hi, Larry

We have a trailer but camp a lot with friends that have a Class C.
Their unit doesn't seem to be any harder/easier to set up than ours...
We wouldn't trade to a Class C, mostly due to the necessity and expense of maintaining/insuring another motor vehicle.
We also think it more cumbersome to tow an extra vehicle than to just unhitch and use the one that got us to the campground to begin with.

Just my two cents!

I've gone the TT and Class A route and each have their benefits. I towed cross country (coast to coast) 3 times - no problems. The Classs A is much more enjoyable to travel in due to the view and access to everything on the road. Yes, the A is easier to stop. camp, and go in - plus if you forget to stow something you just walk back and stow it. I kept both for a year, then sold the TT to only the Class A because the TT wasn't getting used (and due to DW's health issues - yes, age related but don't tell her I said that:>) If you go the used motorhome route - you better be able to do the basic work yourself. It's been my hobby and it has kept me busy. Also, Look at both Class Cs and As - don't buy until you both know that you found the right one.
