No RV Yet

Hello. I'm nearing retirement and considering the purchase of an RV. This looks like a great place to learn how to make an informed decision. I'm looking forward to the education.

Based on your experience I would suggest renting a class C for a couple weeks and checking out how you like it.

That will give you some first hand knowledge to base your purchase on.
