What's up from SC

Found your forum via searching for pictures for a 1989 Sun Vista motorhome. We just sold our Trail Manor camper which was very nice and do miss it. If you don't know about the Trail Manors they are a hard shell pop up style camper. Very light wieght and easy to tow. DW and I decide that we needed something easier to setup. Since we home school our kids we do a lot of weekend field trips. So thought we look at getting a Class C. I would like to get a Class A becuase of storage and leveling jacks. I am a very cheap person and DW hates it. Just don't want to finance another camper. I am very mechinical and can fix about anything. So I came across this Sun Vista that someone locally has for sale for $3500. Thought it would be a great investment. Its a run and drive and is not in to bad condition. Wouldn't mind finding an older Class C but most of them have been run into the ground and the overhead cabs leak. I really don't what to spend 12K or more as the DW has found one she wants...help.

Hello and welcome aboard. Glad you joined us and hope you enjoy the site. Good luck with the shopping and hope you find the rv that works for you.
I wouldn't look at any rv as an investment. Well then maybe??? A money pit.

Ah so ture about the money pit. The old saying is "you can afford to buy it, you just can't afford to feed it"

Yep thats right. And her quote is I am not driving that big Class A. So if you want me to drive I do like the Class C's and they seem to fit our family of four with teenage kids. But when I am going down the road I want to see the sights of the country. Thats why I want the Class A, plus the extra basement storage. I am all about storage space. A lot of Class C's don't have that storage space.

Hi, welcome to IRV2. There are so many pros and cons on both A's & C's. We've had both and the Class A benifits us because we live in it. The C was great to take the grandkids, but no storage space. Anyway, I am sure you will find the right MH for your family. Good luck and safe travels.

You can get a 25 foot c or 25 foot c. the difference is in options. i dont see how one is bigger than another. I like A's, but thats me. I dont think my 33 foot Winnebago is any bigger than a 33 foot C class anything. Its just a matter of what goes where.

Sleeping quarter wise ya cant beat those hybrids, theyre awesome. You can get 3+ queens outta those suckers, and MUCH CHEAPER! Good luck and welcome! Sandy n John

Regarding the lack of power leveling jacks on a "C".

All it takes is money, and you can have them bolted on, no problem.
