Searching for MH

Hello Everyone-

My wife and I are in the process of searching for our first MH. We need something in the B+ C range or maybe a C Toy Hauler to travel from East Coast to Florida a couple times a year.

We travel with animals that need a kennel. I was thinking a toy hauler or over cab bunk would allow us to use the back of RV (remove a bed?) and replace with our stainless kennels..

It seems like there a many many options to consider. I know this next question will unleash a fire storm but are there any MH's that are generally too be avoided? Either mechancial problems with the truck or fit and finish issues on certain years or models of certain manufactures?

Thanks for any and all comments and answers and opinions,

Mike and Keri

Glad to have you here with us.

The only motorhome I can think of to avoid is the one that you "settle for". It will never be what you really want or need.

Best of luck with your search and Happy Trails!!!

Avoid ones with water damage, excessive interior wear, bad engines, and bad transmissions.

Pretty much everything else can be fixed.

Class C's with the rear corner bed often have very large "basement" storage areas accessible from outside. This would be fantastic to give you access from both outside and inside for your pups. As an example, many of the CruiseAmerica 26' C's are set up like this.


How many animals? Would a B+ be too small?

For many kennels, a C toy hauler would be optimum for minimal remodeling and easy outside access for the animals--and comfortable alternate bed arrangements.

Hello-

Thanks for these tips. We have 4 animals and B+ may be fine. Are there RV renovation business out there like home remodelers? If I buy a used unit can I take it somewhere and have i customized?

Im going to rent a Cruiseamerica for the weekend and see how it goes... good suggestion.

Thanks everyone,

MIke
