Our introduction..

My wife and I are fairly new to the RV world. We first purchased a 21 foot Coachman Apex 215rbk in 2014. She wanted a class C and I was afraid we wouldn't like the lifestyle so she went along with my way of thinking. We went ahead and purchased the Apex. We loved it. Well she knew she would and I realized she was right.

The problem was it was too small...one of life's cruel jokes...but I digress...
we just didn't have enough living space in the trailer for when we weren't outside. At this point we were going back and forth about purchasing a MH...you know: how big, new or used, gas or diesel, no slide outs or four, would we really use a washer/dryer, do we need a toad, do the seats come in anything other than white? I am sure a lot of you had similar discussions.

Then we went to the end of year motorhome show in our area and we decided on a 31 foot gaser. Not huge or fancy but it fits our needs and style.

The moral to my story, for those of you who are younger and still trainable,

Your woman IS ALWAYS RIGHT.

Looking forward to meeting you all while on the road!

Chance

you can't beat a class a...............I find a 40 footer about right..........as for toad, you cannot beat the convenience of having a smaller vehicle to do local sightseeing in, or just going out to dinner............whether it is dolly (like I have) or 4 down......happy adventures...................

Ya, I have a feeling a toad is in our future. We did look at a 2002 Diplomat DP and we did really like the floor plan. But it had too many problems. I am not the best fix it type of guy...hence a newer model.

Take care!

Chance

I would love a Jeep!

However, per the DW, "as long as you are still walking upright, something like a Nissan Versa will work just fine"...

You cant beat a little 4cyl 5speed for a toad. I have a Ford Focus and its great. Light, cheap, and big enough for 2 , a dog and groceries.
