Welcome - let us know what you are looking for.

IMO the first and main thing to consider is floor plan. Find the RV that has the floor plan that will meet the most if not all of your requirements. That includes time when you will be spending inside during inclement weather, hobbies that you would like to layout and pursue and the other facilities such as washrooms, cooking and food preparation.

Purchase the highest model of any brand you are considering. Generally the higher the model the better the material used to construct. Avoid models that contain pressed wood. Although they will perform OK their life span may not be as long.

Many times I have read the advice on this forum that you should be buying your last RV first.

Good luck in your quest.
