Greetings Roadies !

Greetings Fellow Roadies ! Our search for the Zen Solutions of Happy RV'n Trails has lead us here. The Admiral's retirement is on the visible horizon, mine now fulfilled , and we have begun "The Quest" in ernest rather than casual observation. Yes, that seemingly unending fixation on floor plans, powertrains, purveyors and parks is now consuming all bandwidth at our sticks & bricks of Bluffton, SC (mainland Hilton Head). Two thousand questions will follow, but for now just two.
1.) Is there a semi reliable source for used RV market values (SOLD prices), rather than the dream world of listing / asking prices such as the NADA compilation ?
2.) Have you found the popular statement that (paraphrasing) "keep length below 35 feet for the parks" to be valid?
We are prior sailors (30' Pearson) with experience in small space living. We have been considering short diesel pushers...but still studying all forms of Class A RV, incl the Sprinters. We are a bi-coastal family and will need mountain pass climbing torque, and possibly bi polar counseling considering the switch from sailing to RV's!

Thanks for your wisdom o'wise ones !

Glad you joined us here in the forum.

It is rare that RV length will affect where you can stay. Yes there are some parks that have limits, but you can always find a CG nearby.

Find the size coach that's right for you and don't worry about the size. You'll adjust to it easily.

Good luck and Happy Trails!!!
