Well, yesterday we sold our 2004 Tropi-Cal DP and came home in a much smaller Class C. I feel like a gigantic weight has been lifted from my shoulders. Not sure why, but the big DP just seemed too big, too imposing. And it was too big for some of the campgrounds we like to visit. Since we're not yet retired, we can only spend a few weeks and a few weekends a year in it, and the Class C seems like a better fit. It will be interesting tonight as we start to put our permanent supplies in the new coach!

dancoogan-We just did the same thing. We traded in our 99 Bounder 32H for a 28A FourWinds Plain Vanilla Class C. We love it! Giving up the storage space was the hardest. However 90% of the stuff we carried around was never used! I find it much easier to drive a "C". Less stressful and less concentration on mountain and curvey roads. By the way what did you get? Cheers! Road Dog

Dutchman - not sure what that is in your avatar, but it's one of nicest looking class C's around!

Road Dog - we went from a 37' DP to a 31' Jayco Granite Ridge. Like you, it was really interesting to take all the stuff out of the bigger coach and then NOT put it back in the new coach, if we hadn't used it in the last year. Amazing how much stuff you carry just because there's space! And I have to agree about the driving being less stressful.

We also went from a 37' A to a 30' Granite Ridge. We found that we weren't using our big Mountain Aire and sat down to understand why.

We found that it seemed more like work than pleasure taking out the big'n. Not relaxing. Couldn't stop at roadside stands, couldn't take it to state parks (can't afford to scratch all that beautiful full paint). She felt uncomfortable driving the big coach but enjoys driving the Jayco C.

Bottom line, the C is much more relaxing to drive, park... to use. And we are out there a lot more now.
