Hi folks!
Carl and Grace here. We'll be fixing up the house this coming year to sell the following spring. We want to fulltime in a used DP. We've owned a 24 foot class a in the past, so we have a clue about what we're getting into.
Our current "RV" is a Yamaha FJR1300 towing a Harbor Freight Tagalong trailer and a Eureka tent.😄

We've never been west of the Mississippi, and want to hit all the national parks. Rather than drag a toad we want to tow an enclosed trailer for our motorcycle and storage for tools a stuff.

Welcome to the forum. Have you thought about a toy hauler?

Welcome and good hunting for a "larger" RV.

We travel as well during the summer with a GoldWing trike and a GoldWing pulling a Bunkhouse popup. Wonderful way to travel.

The 1300 is an awesome bike. Was one of the bikes I considered seriously until the Bunkhouse became important.

Thought about a toyhauler, I wasn't impressed, too many compromises. I'd rather tow a trailer with a 10-12 foot box that I could also use as a small workshop. I could bring my manual tire changer, since I usually only get about 8-10k on a set of bike tires.

Here's a pic of our current class M(otorcycle) rig;
