Looking forward to reviewing all the comments in all the forums. We have ALMOST purchased an RV after just doing rentals. We seem to change our minds between how big, how much, what would be our most likely uses, etc. so we hope to get focused via this site. We had a contract in hand for a Coachman Prism, but then we saw and loved the Airstream Interstate, and then the Pleasureways, and then a Winnebago, and then who knows what will be next. Through lots of reading and discussion, we are not hard core campers, but more travelers who would stop at RV resorts while traveling. Thus the current appeal of the Class B's. We are looking forward to the input from all the experts in this forum as we take our leap into the world of RV's.

Welcome to the irv2 gang, Bill & Chris! Glad you're here.

We took over a year to choose what we wanted. The more we looked, the more fun we had and the more we learned. From our point of view (may not be yours), we were ready to purchase two different Class C motorhomes; then it hit us that we needed to list things we would want on a trip and consider both capacity and weight.

I didn't know about a few things until learning in these forums. (1) Capacity--internal and under-carriage storage are more limited on Class Cs that we looked at, and (2) motorhomes are built to handle certain load capacities (including any vehicle you might tow). When we put it all together based on our wants and needs, we had to shift our sites to a Class A. As a compromise we limited ourselves to a length under 35 feet. I really don't know that we would have figured these things out (at least not easily) without the help of folks here.

Good luck with your search and enjoy the process.
