There really isn't a perfect rig. Everyone has different needs and wants. What's good for one person is not good for another.

My suggestion is to just get out there and look at all the different models and RV types. You will soon decide what type of RV is best for you. A class "A" class C, B a fifth wheel travel trailer etc.

A trade show is a good place to start as will see them all side by side.

Best of luck with your search. Keep us posted, and Happy Trails!!

Welcome to the forums!

And THANK YOU for your service to our country! There are a lot of us folks here that served in the military.

When you are tired of reading, start asking questions. And remember, there are no silly ones.

Enjoy all of your upcoming adventures,

Final 3

We have driven all over Fl looking at all of the different rigs and have selected the 3 finalists.

- Itasca Ellipse 42 QD

- Allegro 37AP

- Entegra Aspire DEQ

I realize that the Itasca is a level down but Renee and I love the floor plan.

Thanks for any input you may have.

Doug and Renee.
