I have been lurking for a while and let me say what a great forum and fantastic place to learn. The wife and I are fairly new to the RV lifestyle but loving it. In that short time I am ashamed to say we are now on the 4th RV. Couldn't find the one that fit. Thought and felt right but ended up lacking. Luckily I was able to turn them and not get hurt. 1st was a Coachman Class C, then a Dynamax 260st. We loved that but was too small. Tell you why in a moment. Next was a Palazzo we liked the lay out it but I hated being pushed around by a passing semi or a little gust of wind. We looked at - bunch of tag axles and settled on the 2014 Tuscany 42WX. Really enjoy driving it. It was new and got it for 220k changed out the in motion satellite for a winguard and gave 125 k trade. Heck I only paid 130 for the palazzo. Hard for me to pass on it. We like the space it gives us as one of my traveling companions is an Irish Wolfhound. So if you see a Tuscany from Arkansas with an Irish wolfhound stop by and say hello.

Don't know about the experience thing but I do learn. Sometimes the hard way. I can give a pretty honest evaluation of several RVs. Anyway glad to be here

Howdy from SC and welcome to the forums. Congrats on the new rig too! I know what you mean about finding the right rig. After a very long absence from RV'ing, we got back into the fray in 2010 with a r-Pod TT. After our first trip of three weeks on the road we quickly discovered it was way too small for us. The following year we traded up to a v-cross 34' TT and absolutely loved it, but our Ford Expedition although powerful enough to tow it, just couldn't overcome the terrible sway due to its short wheelbase. Thus the following year we traded that TT in for our current MH and haven't looked back once!
