Smile Seeking other options

I live in SE Michigan and watching the snow, rain and freezing rain today reminds me that my decision to become a snowbird is a good one. I will be looking for a Class B or Class C RV in the coming months. I have a travel trailer that I will be selling in the near future. I look forward to reading and learning from all of you.

Welcome to IRV2. Or you could just move full-season to some place where it's just 120 degrees day in and day out. Or be a snow-bird and get the best of both worlds. Look at it this way if the snow falls down south again you'll know what you're doing and look like a pro

Several friends have suggested that I might rent an RV before I buy! The idea is that I could then determine what unit works best for our needs. Any thoughts on this subject?
