Newbie from OC, CA

Checking in, found this site through a boating forum. Great info here, I've owned a couple trailers but looking to get into to our first MH. Thinking a 26-28' class C would be perfect for my family. We don't have a huge budget, 35k-40k, so I'm thinking used.
What brands should I steer clean of? I don't mind a little cosmetic fix up but not wanting to go from a trouble free TH to a project...

Seems ford v10 is the better option? Looking to pull a trailer or light vehicle.

Get a Lazy Daze! Great local brand. But they don't feature slide outs if that's what you're needing.

Welcome from another SoCal member. I personally think you will have more room in a class A and there are some decent used coaches out there, just need to look around. The big RV show is coming to Pomona in October and you can see just about everything made all in one place to give you some ideas.
