Hello from Sunny Las Vegas

I'm new to the Forum. I would like to thank all of the people working behind the scenes to make it available. Also look forward to learning a lot from the veterans on the site. We have owned a 2005 Road Trek 190 Popular for about 3 years and think maybe we need something with a little more elbow room. Hope you all can provide the help I'll most definitely need. Thanks again and look forward to meeting you.

Welcome! That is a loaded question as it depends on how many people? What is your budget? Want a 40' ? Gas or diesel?

Take me on and you take on the whole trailer park!

Hello and welcome to the Forum!

To start, most people choose an RV according to the floor plan. Go to PPL Motorhomes (out of Texas) website for seeing floor plans. Don't need to buy there unless you find something you want.

This is a consignment place and all RV's are used but they have some great prices and RVs. You will start to eliminate what you don't want and narrow down what you do want. Get an idea of prices too.

The best advice I received here was when looking at a RV always look at it with the slides out and also in. Gives you an idea of what you will have when camped or when driving and needing to eat lunch. When the slide is in, can you get to the fridge, sink, cupboards?

Have fun!

Pretty much have it figured out to a B+, not sure which brand as there are not a lot to choose from. Thanks for your input.
