Welcome to the forum. Take your time looking, there are a lot of good used units out there right now at very good prices, also dealers are making good deals on new units. We shopped for almost a year before buying our coach. Might not take you that long, but we were in no hurry and found what we wanted at the right price.

Good luck and keep us posted.

I have learned so much from others on this forum re the many things to consider (and sometimes fix) when buying/owning a Class A. I occasionally pass my thoughts on to others as well in an effort to help. Sometimes maybe I do....I dunno'. This forum is a goldmine of info, so I would suggest you spend a lot of time here reading and researching the type of RV you are considering.

One could go on for days and days offering suggestions. I would like to offer only a few. First, consider a floor plan that really works for you....not necessarily what works for others or something that the seller just happens to have for sale. You have to live with that floor plan. Second, make sure your RV has enough usable COUNTER SPACE for your needs. I have been in $300,000+ motor homes that have counter space that could best be described as a bad joke. IMHO, this is VERY important. Also, really look over the build quality of the RV. For example, don't just look AT the pretty cabinets....look inside, underneath, behind, etc. Do that for many of the things that are part of the RV you are considering. There is a lot more to see than just the cosmetic looks of the thing. Research here on this forum can be VERY helpful in this area.

And one other thing, if I may. Suggest you buy value (and quality)....NOT just low price. There are a lot of good prices floating around out there. Finding good value at a good/great price can take some effort and time. Best value and low price are not always the same thing. When you find both in the same RV, you will be in very good shape.

I'm sure many others much more experienced than I will chime in with useful suggestions. Good luck....and let the forum know how it turns out.
