Welcome Rafael - Brooklyn alumni here, Flatbush, E35th & Clarendon, Erasmus Hall 1969.........LOL

Never thought about owning an RV in Brooklyn (heck - they were not popular back then !) But why not!

So - when you sit down and say, ok lets go buy an RV. some questions you may want to ask yourself, let me try and get you started:

Do I want new or used?
How many people will I be traveling with?
Do I want a Class C, Class B, Class A, 5th wheel, travel trailer?
If considering a motor home, do I want a gas or Diesel engine?
How will I use it? (Weekend only, long trips, both)
Where will I park it when not in use?

These questions should get you started and once you have them answered - it is time to get serious and look for your rig!

irv2 is a great place to get help and inspiration - and make some friendships too!

Good luck Rafael...........Merry Christmas '

Welcome and Merry Christmas!

My wife was born in Brooklyn and the best thing my father-in-law ever did was take the BQE to the Verranzano across Staten Island and head west without looking back!

If you have off street parking, you should look at some Class B's which are a little bigger than a van.

I have one like the one in this video and I think it would work for you in Brooklyn!
