Hi from Michigan. My husband and I just went to an RV show and I got the rv bug. Trying to decide what type/style rv to go with. I found several travel trailers that I like, however am limited in towability as we have a 2003 Volvo XC90 T6 AWD seats 7 with 125,000 miles on it. My husband is on the cheap side and doesn't want to spend alot of money. (If he had his way we would never go anywhere or do anything
That said, my dilema is a travel trailer within the towability of the Volvo, or a C Class motorhome. Our home is on 19 acres so storage is not a problem. I have agreed to wait 2 years in order to pay off those pesky credit cards, but this has not stopped me from looking
Travel would be the two of us plus an occassional couple with 2 children. If necessary, the couple and children could follow along in their own vehicle and stay in the trailer at the destination to cut down on the weight in the main vehicle. If we go alone we would probably bring the cats. Has anyone camped with cats? The heaviest dry weight trailer I am looking at weighs 3804. Would this be doable? I don't want to wreck the Volvo.
About 20 years ago (before the current husband) I borrowed a C Class motorhome and camped for a week and really enjoyed it. My current husband is an ASE certified GM technician so I thought a gas motorhome would be a good choice as he could do some of the mechanical maintenance on it himself to save some money. He knows nothing about diesels.
Any tips or suggestions anyone may have would be greatly appreciated and the advice would be highly valued.
Thank you for being here, and I look forward to meeting some new friends.
