We've recently retired & ready to do some traveling! Do we RV is the question. We've been "campers" for years & currently have a seasonal park model. Also have owned Holiday Rambler TT along with many tents & pop ups.

So many questions!! Class A; Class C; TT?? What's the deal with Airstream price? Are they REALLY worth the $?

Looking forward to learning from all of you!

We now live on a 42' Trawler. Have for nearly 9 years. After 15000 miles and several long voyages (Bahamas 4 times and 2 trips to Ky) we are looking for a new adventure. I'll have lots of questions, so please be gentle with me!

Howdy and welcome to the forums. We camped for many years in tents first, then a pop up. Then bought an r-Pod, traded that in for a 34 foot TT but now we have the MH and we're so glad we did! Once you go motor home there is no turning back!

Welcome aboard,I still have a 43 Tiara sportsfisherman,but seem to be doing more with motorhome these days.That 1/2 mile to the gallon hurts and you can't keep much in the way of fish.I keep mine at City Marina Fort pierce,where are you located?

Hi and welcome to the group. Enjoy the forum and ask questions, perhaps it'll help you on your choice. When you decide have safe trouble free travels.

Kenmar2 - Welcome. We've found traveling by RV is the most rewarding way to travel. We started with a TT but got a fifth wheel after a year so we could have comfy recliners and more interior space for those long dark winter nights. The best thing about RVing is that you can travel at a leisurely place and really get to know each area you visit. So, if you ask me, go for a fifth wheel trailer!!!

Mike Harriet - Welcome to you too!! Have fun cleaning out the trawler. We are fellow boaters, although we started by full-timing in our RV for a few years before cruising. We currently split our time between sailing Pacific Mexico in winters and RVing the western states in summers. Hopefully you're in for some really good times ahead in your RV after all those seasons in the Bahamas!

Good luck with the research and shopping to both of you!!
