Thumbs up This is my year!!

Hi, ya 'll! New from NC. Birthday number 66 yesterday & ready for my next chapter. So much to do! I'm SDF -planning to go fulltime by fall ; purchase by summer. (Getting rid of stuff & then sell my townhouse).Was thinking class c because of easier to maneuver but starting to hear much more about class a. I'm into used $40k$50k Range. Sister moving to Tx from CA. so a great area to winter. Then back to NC Mtns. For summer near grandkids. I will need to workkamp. (Background in sales.) Did pop-up growing up & then tent camped at 31 with two boys to Grand Canyon. Can't wait for the adventure to begin. All the doubters get out of my way !!

Welcome! A 30' class A is easy to handle and you'll love the view. And I would think that $40-50K is doable. Go to Craigslist, RV Trader or our classifieds on IRV2 to get an idea of floor plans and pricing. Good hunting!

Welcome from eastern NC. I think you would really like a class A up to a 35 footer. Check out wheelestatervs.com for good prices on a used unit.
Dealer prices in your area a high for a used unit, but they are negotiable.
HAGD,
Alex

Thumbs up thanks, wingtrike!

I appreciate your mentioning "Wheelestate". I actually heard of him from a guy I contacted on craigslist. I responded to someone who refurbished rigs. He was strongly advising a Class A DP &also said I should contact Wheelestate. I initially wanted to ask how to find a good/honest RV tech in this area to go over a used rig being sold through an individual. (My thinking is that they would probably work for a dealership). Your info is appreciated. I know my requirements, especially regarding the $40-50k range is in the lower end, but I'm gonna see what's out there for me. May have to do the Class C. Next time I head down to Raleigh to see my son, I may head over to Princeton also. Thanks!!

Thanks! I know that is a low $...but I 'm hoping! Seems like I am really getting a "nudge" that everyone really happy with their A's! Buying from reputable association is essential! Any ideas on how to find a mechanic that is RV savvy &not connected to a dealership ? I guess that scares me (because I am in sales/ha ha!). Since I will be on the road by myself...I at least want it checked out very well!! Thanks for your input!
