We have been itching to go the fulltime route for several years now. The house is sold and we are in the market for a "easy" class C to start. We have been lurking on your site for sometime and find everyone to be informative and helpful. A great bunch of people, seems to me. We are in the test riding phase, and would love to be able to pick all of your brains as the questions arise. Really appreciate you being here. We have only just begun and you have been very helpful in answering questions just from reading all the archives. Thanks again.
Jay & Liz

Jay and Liz,

Welcome aboard iRV2.com

You'll find plenty of helpful folks here to answer questions as you go through the investigation and learning many others have as they've undertaken that transition from the permanent home to the fulltime RV lifestyle.

Be sure to ask plenty of questions as well as read what others have already discussed. We're thrilled to have you join us.

sjrod04...
I would also like to welcome you to iRV2! You have come across a great RV forum here with so many friendly & helpful members.
I wish you the best in your search for the perfect rig for you. One idea you may want to consider is to actually rent a few RVs for a week at a time. You may find things about the layout - as far as what you can or cannot live without. You may also find yorself deciding on a class A. It is cheaper to get the rig the first time instead of trading up in a year or two...but that is just my opinion...

Again...welcome to iRV2...we hoe you visit & post often!

Jay and Liz -
Welcome and Congratulations on your big step!
We're a year or two behind you on the f-t path. But, we just bought our first MH a few weeks ago.

I echo Mama's words about renting first. Earlier this year, we took a 10-day trip in a rented 2008 26-ft Tioga Class C, which was gobs of fun and taught us tons about what we wanted and didn't want in our own RV. It was a most informative trip.

Eight weeks later we bought our own 32-foot Class A. So, be careful. Renting can really cost ya!

You have come to the perfect spot to have all of your questions answered. We look forward to hearing about your adventures and meeting you on the road one day.

Boris and Natasha

Thanks to all of you, and I hope to get to know everyone. Seems like a great bunch of people here. We spent the week looking in our area and a 50 mile radius, and boy, what a dry area for class C's. We are in the Farmington,NM "four corners" area and not many C's, just trailers and a few A. We both think it is a smart move to try one out, or several to get our feet wet. Might have to head up to Denver for the week, but we are going to try Albuquerque this weekend. We did see a 89 Holiday Rambler Alumilite 28" for sale from a private buyer. Original owner the thing looked almost new. Spotless and pride of ownership was evident. we did not originally consider one that old( more like 98-2000)Any opinions on this unit, weaknesses, possibilities, opinions, we welcome them all. Thanks again to all.
Jay&Liz
