We plan to use our RV at a nearby lake at least 6 times a year, NE Georgia camping and 1-2 GA to FL trips a year...1000 miles round trip...
I figure a new small travel trailer could be had for 12-16K vs. 52K for the new Winnebago 22' Class C...big savings! Here thinking is this would save us $$ and not have to have a toad..... My thinking is she could share the driving in a Class C but I doubt she would ever drive while towing......
Any one here trade from a Class C to a travel trailer and happy about it?
We worked our way from tents to popups, TT,5thwheel. When I retired we bought a 40 MH. We found this is a great way to travel but you do need a small car to tow. After many years and close to 80000 miles we went back to a 5th wheel.
We don't travel as much and this gives us some more room for staying longer. We have several areas that we are considering for a long term site. I still feel if you are going to be traveling a lot a motor home of your choice is the best way to go, that's just my opinion.
