Well if your boat doesn't have some things and you don't miss them, the yurt will. Lol.
Bring it on bubba...

So I'm having a hard time deciding. Since Andrea and I are in a different place in life.... meaning we still haven't had kids yet, but want to - and we would like to move to our final "raising the kids" house in the next 2 years - makes buying an RV choice difficult.

Even though I have the money to get another class a, the more and more I look at the class c's, or the small A's with bunks... these would most certainly foot the bill, and for less money. The way we RV, spending anything over 100k just seems like money spent that's not needed to be spent.

Tough choices.... heck id rather pay 50k...

Anyone ever own both? Class c vs class a, diesel vs gas? I've only ever had the 40' footer diesel. I won't be living in it, but I would like to hold it for a long time.

Ah the days of whittling on the back porch steps listening to the radio and listening to Keelor et all entertaining us. At one time I had a collection of the "Final Installment" VHS tapes that were fun to watch. Never understood why PBS never pledge trolled with a Prairie Home Companion telethon? Thanks for reminding me.

If you count like you see probably you'd be great at either all the odds or all the evens.

Had a class B Airstream Van for 20 years. Whatever works is what's best. They all beat tent camping. And you could about us... we will come visit and act like kids and you won't need to have college funds.. been there done that. We will throw away our shoes and every 5 or six months pretending to outgrow them.. break lamps and stand in front of an open refrigerator for 10 minutes looking... and throw baseball's through the neighbors windows. Lol...

Nothing better than kids buckoo.. and nothing better than RV mutating as a family. A boat is a bonus!

Done it.
First tent
Then cabover on pickup (6 months)
Then back to tent
Then class c (1 year)
Then tent with bass boat, then jet boat, then i/o ski boat (20years), and 2 canoes
Loved to camp the islands on Lake Ouachita, we lived 15 min from Arkansas River and my sons
loved to water ski. So we were on the water at least 4 times a week, the tent was easier at the time.

Then the class A dp together with Larry

Larry had class a gasser at some point, and not sure what else........

But like Steve said, it is whatever works for you at the time. I cannot see one fitting all needs or life stages. So be flexible, you might find the one that does make it through..... But i havent...... Good luck....

Come on up, although Lake Catherine is not that big of a fishing lake, Lake Ouchita is world setting, big and BEUTIFUL. Like the ProCraft, I've got a 1995 ProCraft 200combo that has held up super and believe me it's been used a lot! Lake Ouchita is just across town, that's where the Steve's and gals went fishing last year.

Remember CL has yurts and cabins. Hope to see you there, think Luau!

Yeah that's what I'm thinking, Hamilton - ouchita - Ouchita River - williams creek.

I can probably stay for a week and a half to two weeks for this trip. That should be some good time to explore. Having some local knowledge sure helps.

I picked that boat up for a song (no dance) - couple minor "catch up on main" stuff and she's ready to go.

An rv'ing buddy of mine owns the exact same boat, and he loves it - so i figured couldn't go too wrong.

Well... I have a very small C and have not had anything other than a tent... but I can tell you... if you are gonna have kiddos... perhaps something larger than a small C would be appropriate esp. in rainy days that end up blessing us with our rainbows....what about a 5er?
