Comparing RV Classes

Our family has been RV'ing for 12 years. In that time we have owned a Class C, 3 Class A's, a Class B and now a 5th wheel Toy Hauler. Our biggest Class A was a new 2007 Monaco Dynasty 43' tag axle towing a stacker trailer. Having experienced all these units, each with their own benefits and drawbacks, I have to say I like the Toy hauler best for this particular point in our life. We have one child and we like to take a golf cart with us to get around the parks. We also like to take the bicycles and motorcycle. All these fit well in the garage. After the garage is empty, we lower the electric benches, install the table and I have a private mobile office. Our daughter takes over the loft and this becomes her bedroom and toy area. And I really like the ability to unhook and have my truck to tour locally. We have a King Ranch F-450 and it doesn't get much better for driving. As far as cost, the whole setup was just under $150k. That is very tolerable after spending $350k on the Dynasty/Stacker setup. I guess if you add in the Jeep we took in the trailer it was more like $375k. And I find it much more convenient to simply go to a Ford dealer when I need maintaince on the truck vs. finding a Cummings dealer for service on a Class A.

I too have gone thru a number of RVs. First a pop up trailer, then a 25' Class C with dirt bikes on front and rear and pulling a trailer with my hunting dogs, then a 30' Class A Apollo again with dirt bikes front and rear, and I still recall the years of sleeping on the ground with a Troop of boys as their Asst Scoutmaster over a period of 8 years leaving the RVs behind. Then on to a 36' Class A Elite pusher with a elec lift for my big HOG, and now a 37' Outlaw Class A Toy Hauler with slide and garage keeping my toys clean and dry. This may be my last, maybe.
