new member...Hi everyone :)

I am so new, haven't purchased rv yet.
Almost bought mint '78 Fleetwood but wasn't quick enough.

In all honesty, I am very concerned and confused about all the types and brands out there. I thought to start with B....
I retire in four years but my shift allows for short trips. I so want to take a trip and meet you all...
I would appreciate and input.

If you've never RVed, then maybe a weeks rental would be a good start.
At least it would help , to narrow your search by providing some type and size, ideas.

That's an excellent idea. It would give me an opportunity to drive one

Welcome....When we were looking for a rig, we did a lot of research....talked to sales people, owners, campers and lots of time on the internet before finding the right set up for us. Good luck with your search.

I am leaning towards used Minnie Winnie. They look like tight ship.

We're new too - and completely empathize with your mind fizz when it comes to RV shopping. Just keep looking until you don't think that you can learn anything else about them.

We also found it very helpful to go to places like Camping World just to walk around inside all of the types of RVs - trying out all of the chairs until we found the perfect setup. We still haven't purchased, but we THINK we're getting close!

Good luck to you! ...and welcome.

Hi everyone!
My hubby and I will be full time rv'ers in about three years and we have started our motor coach research but are wanting to get a toyhauler. My husband does not want to haul a car behind the coach so this feels like are only other option. Could someone share with me your sources for vehicles used for short trips without coach while traveling. Appreciate your thoughts...........
