New Member - Contemplating My First MH


I found this forum in my quest to gain some knowledge prior to first RV purchase. Wanting something large and powerful enough to pull a small toad around for seeing the country. I do wet plate collodion large format photography - tintypes - and traveling with that kind of equipment in anything other than an RV sounds near impossible. Planning on getting something within the next year. Having recently retired and the economy forcing early retirement on my wife, I'll be shopping used.

Initially inclined to look for a good used Class A, just not sure whether I limit it to diesel or consider gas. Anyway, there is a plethora of information here so I am sure I can find some good advice.
