Thumbs up Another Noob Here...

Hello to esteemed Administrators and enlightened RVers. Hoping to join your ranks within the next year or so.

My husband and I have just started the looking process, but know we want a Class C or possibly a Super C MH. Looking at everything from 24-32 ft rigs.

I have a "less is more" mindset...to me, a fireplace, or exterior entertainment system in an RV is ridiculous . Of course, YMMV and that's OK

Looking forward to learning lots. Thank you all in advance!

Enjoy the process and respect your decisions... I have similar values but I have revised them many times in my quest to my coach.. The fireplace I always thought was a un-needed salesman gimmick, but after reading about full timers needing an electric heater for those days (mornings) they didn't feel completely get the furnace going, it is less than a gimmick. I'll just plan on using my quartz heaters already proven in my house, just another thing to carry..

Space is precious, so agree on exterior entertainment... It always gets back to the basic question: how are you planning on using it?

My process is to pick max price then see what I can get for that price, then modify needs vs price.... Used is a great way to avoid the initial depreciation that is a steep curve down. but with used is the risk of not being maintained, inspections are good but always plan on surprises...
