New member, enjoying the post here!

Hello to All,
My wife and I currently have a 2008 Grand Junction fifth wheel, our second. We are interested in changing to a class A Motor home. I joined this forum seeking information for this change. There is a wealth of information and experience here and I greatly appreciate this site.
Thanks to All!

Welcome to the forum. You will like the change to a Class A MH, we went from a Class B to a Class A. We actually bought a 2013 29' Coachman Freelander and when we decided to go full-time we started looking for a diesel pusher. We found our 45' Travel Supreme and fell in love with it so we traded our 2 month old Coachman in on it. The size difference is incredible.
One big thing to consider with going to a Class A is, what are you going to pull behind the class A? What you tow the 5th wheel with might be too heavy.

Hi and welcome to IRV2! It's great to have you with us! We just went to our first Class A after 10 years in a 5er. It's a HUGE adjustment! Not really sure yet if we're gonna stick with it. We're keeping the 5er a while just in case..... Good luck & God bless!
