2 New Retirees

My husband and I just recently retired. I have been lurking here for awhile. We are searching for our new motorhome (probably Class A). We hope to be on the road before the heat in Arizona sets in. There is a wealth of information here. I am sure we will put it to good use.

RV Show??

It seems to me that all the Rv shows are just a sale put on by 1 RV dealer. I was hoping Quartzsite would be different but alas it was not. It was even the same dealer who is about 5 miles down the road from us. We have decided to go with a used coach. So no more RV shows for us. We will be mostly searching online. Any other avenues on finding used coaches?

Welcome & good luck on your search. You might look at MHSRV, Motorhomes of Texas & Foretravel websites to get an idea of what is available.
