Another newbie family

Hi! My wife and I started looking at RVs about a month ago. She had always fantasized about one of the Mercedes Class B units. Sticker shock! We have now seen the fleet- new & used, A,B,C. 1,2,& 3 slides. Bells, whistles, horns, you name it, I think we have looked at it!
We are in the hunt for 30-32 feet, Class A, no slides, island queen, used. We have a few more years to work and decided not to spend everything on our first rodeo.
We are looking at a 1999 Sea Breeze tomorrow. It looks good from the outside, but until we can see the tires, roof and floor plan, we're not going to let our emotions run away.
We lived on a 42' trawler and expect it to be similar but different. I have already picked up lots of info reading post. Look forward to leaning more.

Good luck on your search.....Think about having the rig your looking at inspected....and check the date of the tires......anything older than 7 years should be replaced. Safe and Happy Travels.
