Rvtime2,

Welcome to the site.

I suppose the first question is...

How do you see yourself using the Class C?
Weekend trips?
Epic adventures criss-crossing America?
Full timing but staying in one place for extended periods?

Hi,

I'd look at used units no older than five years. Research the 55% rule for length. What an exciting time you will have

eriods?
our current plan is to keep our house so fulltiming not our plan.
mostly, 7 day trips to visit kids and take grandkids on trips during summer.
use with friends on fishing trips.

we would like to take a tour of us and maybe Canada, that will be our longest planned trip.

I have considered some work camping from time to time,if needed to supplement finances.
I have church work on weekends and now can expand during the week.

thanks

We bought a 2007 WB Access 29T, 31' long. We used it twice recently and like it. We have a lot to learn about driving it and towing our crv. We need to make some suspension improvements, but we have adequate storage and are staying within weight limits. I experienced my first visit to the truck scales, it was fun. They also have a really good high volume compressor that pumps up to 75 psig very quickly. We are learning alot of new things with this new to us RV. I want to thank you for your cordial welcome. Blessings and safe travels to all of you. Thanks in advance for sharing your wisdom, understanding and knowledge With us.
