Newcomer to RV

I have great memories of camping, we took the kids in a simple pop.up terrific times. Kids are grown and on their own. We are looking at buying this coming summer. After a year of looking narrowed it down to a few; Winnie Forza 38R, Thor Palazzo 36.1 and one other. Any suggestions? We are not going full time,currently own a business and can only get away for a,couple weeks at a time. I am concerned about driving a big rig,and trying to figure out whether I should toad or not, or small scooter or what? I am looking at new mainly for the features and he dealer support, I think the difference between a good negotiated price and a used vehicle would not be that much. I would appreciate any help.

Best luck with your search!

You've got enough questions for several different threads in different forums.

Using the "Search" function that is just below and to the left of your ID in the top right side of the page...you will find many replies to these questions already on the forums.

About which RV - asking the forum for a "Which is best" will bring many loyal owners to sing the praise of the RV brand they own. It's much smarter to just ask owners what they like and do your own comparison. Afterall, the best RV is the one you like best.

I will offer 1 point about the 2 RV brands mentioned: Winnebago and Thor are virtually tied for the top selling RV brands in North America. They both are good makers, have large dealer networks, offer a very good price point, and offer the public what they/we want.

Safe travels

thanks for the suggestions, I looked at some of the forums and I thought I would start here. I figure I have some time before I commit I also understand that each brand has their own plus and minus, I just thought that I would hear some independent responses instead of just the dealers opinion. I try to listen to a lot of perspectives and make a decision from gathering a broad view.
