Welcome to the forum. You'll find plenty of help here, but you'll probably want to post questions under the "Manufacturers", "Chassis" or "RV Systems & Tech" forums. I've had great deal help from nice folks with much experience.
You can even do a search in the classifieds here.

Best of luck and safe travels!

Better yet, tell us what experience with motor homes you have had, what your needs are (vacations, snowbird, full time), how many people normally traveling, approx budget, and what you think you like.

Do not be in a hurry. That can be very costly.

Look, look, and look again. Do internet searches, go to RV shows, lurk on the forums. When you are ready to start seriously looking, double check the info your dealer tells you...sometimes your salesperson may not be 100% correct on what you are looking at because they sell all makes and models of RV....
Enjoy the process.....
