Newbie from Texas

Hi
New to Rving. right now we have a toy hauler trailer. Sometime in the next year
we would like to purchase an Motorhome. Any recommendations are welcome.
We will be getting a used one for sure though. So anythoughts on size , make, class A or Class C would be welcome.

Welcome to the forum. Where are you located? If I was looking for a RV I would be looking at ppl.com. Not enough information to make a recommendation.

Welcome Wandering2... from a fellow Texan...at least originally.

After looking at both class Cs and Class As for about a year we decided on an A. But my advice is take your time, do some research, and look at a lot of different MHs. There are tons of options out there, all with their own quirks, advantages, and disadvantages. Just be aware, no matter what you decide, there will be those who agree and just as many who don't. Find the coach setup YOU like, then find one you are confident has been well maintained.

Happy hunting and enjoy the road

Chance

Yes thats what we plan to do. Look around alot. Were leaning towards an Class A. but not set in stone. I just don't want to buy someone else's troubles.

Glad to have you here in the forum with us.

Some answers are needed. How will you be using the RV? What is your budget? How many will travel and stay with you?

Happy Trails!!

We will be using it for vacations. The first one to Yellowstone. Wife's been wanting to go there. It will mostly just be me and the wife and sometimes her mother. All our kids are grown and gone. Not sure on the budget yet. but I'm a believer in pre owned. Probably will be 50k or less. I want to most RV I can get for the money. Nothing too new, nothing too old I guess. It just depends on the shape and how well it was taken care of. The hunt is half the fun I guess.
