Hello from Germany

Hi,

my husband and I will move next year, plan is October 2011, to Delaware US. We spent our last vacation for 3 weeks in California in June 2010 in a rented motorhome and decided to own a 5th wheel when sattle in the USA. In Germany we own a Winnebago Minni Winnie for more than ten years and it was very big for Europe 5th Wheeler are not avaibale in Germany so we can't get any information about that.

Now we are looking for your comments and it is very helpful on this site.
Sorry about my bad english, but I'm trying to get better.

Thanks to all, with love from Germany
Chrissy

Chrissy;

Welcome to iRV2. We have a wealth of information here. All you have to do is browse the forums and ask questions. A couple of forums come to mind. They are Travel Trailer & Fifth Wheel Forum and the Winnebago Industries Owner's Forum. Don't be afraid to ask questions as we have a great group here who like to help when they can. If you want to be identified as a member of the Winnebago Owners Club we would be happy to help you with that also.

Post often and share share some of your camping adventures in Germany.

Don

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

Welcome to IRV2, don't forget to match your truck size to your 5-r. Your English is fine.

Thank you for the welcome.

We are looking for a 5th wheeler, which is big enough to live in for serveral month but not over 35". The unit must run during the winter, so needed heated water and holding tanks. A kitchen with a big refrigerator making icecubes will be fine. Washer/Dryer is welcome. We are also looking for models from 2007 above.

We'll looking forward to your recommendations.

Regards from rainy Munich
Chrissy

Most people with trailers and 5W's already own good sized trucks for other reasons when they go looking for an RV to pull... so you need to talk about your tow vehicle (TRUCK) first and the areas like mountains that you plan to be operating that in.

Unless of course you plan to leave the RV in one (or two) places for those three months of use and then hire out the limited and seasonal relocation work.

In this (very rational) case RV size/weight is not much of a limit at all.

If you don't buy anything over 35' a F 250 should be plenty. However, if you want to live in it for several months at a time, I suggest you look to a little biger 5er. We have owned a 32', 34' & 39'. Guess which one we liked best?

Take your time in purchasing, there are some good deals out there right now.

Dave
