Hoping to hit the road soon

Hi Y'all!

I'm Barb, soon to be retired--soon to be the proud owner of a small motorhome -- brand yet to be determined. Currently a resident of central Oklahoma, mom to 2 daughters -- 1 grown and independent, the other almost 14 and totally dependent (mostly because she is a capuchin monkey). Their names are Ami and Sena, respectively.

Sena and I are looking forward to excellent adventures and time to do whatever, whenever. Does it ever work out that way?

For for the last 10+ years I have worked as a personal assistant/monkey nanny for a very busy female executive. The hours have been lengthly and choatic. Sadly, we lost her capuchin to a heart problem last September and life as a personal assistant is less than appealing. Should anyone happen to recognize me from this description, PLEASE don't mention this to anyone. I haven't told the boss yet. God grant me courage.

I am looking to purchase a new motorhome, 22 to 24 feet long with a rear corner bed and full bath. If anyone has advice as to which model is best for a full-time RVer, please speak -- ahh, type forth.

I look forward to meeting lots of y'all.

I would recomend going to an RV show and look at all the different floor plans. Be sure to stand in the shower, "Play Like" you are taking a shower, Lay on the bed , sit in the drivers seat etc;etc. This would give you an idea of what you really want and how it feels to "YOU" because we are all different. I guess what I'm saying is spend some time in the one you choose before you buy it since your going full time. Hope this helps you decide.Good luck !!!
See you down the road.

"Happy Trails" & "God Bless"

I'll tell you right now...don't talk yourself out of getting one with slides. The more the better. We love our Brave, but the only thing we'd change is having one with slide outs.

Hi Barb and Welcome to the Forum,

Look at LOTS of motorhomes to get a good feel for what is out there in your price range and the floorplans they have. Keep in mind that at 22' to 24' there is not going to be a lot of variety - there is only so much they can do with that small of a coach.

Don't worry too much about what name is stuck to the side of it, there are going to be issues with anything you end up buying, but if I had to pick a new Class C in today's available market I would start with Winnebago. But I would definitely look closely at all brands.

Enjoy your shopping adventure!

There's an RV show here in 2 weeks!!! Just color me a "happy camper".

Sorry, couldn't resist the bad pun. Whew! Glad I got that out of my system.
