We belong to several RV Clubs. Escapees would be ideal for a person in your position.
We have a local Chapter here Ken-Tenn. #42. I was a past Pres.
Out of all that we belong too. Think this is the best one.

Class A to Class C

I too made the transition from an "A" to a 31 ft. , '07 Chateau earlier this year. What is lost in view is compensated for in handling and overall driving comfort, no longer do I feel like I'm driving a 'bus'. I've made a few mods myself and have enjoyed decent mileage and comfort. Ironically, my Michelins were shot with only 2 years and 5000 miles, but the dealer agreed and paid for 6 new tires, not Michelins. No regrets

Good for you on Michelins NOT. I lucked out and my dealer paid me for the tires. Not Michelins either. Glad you like your new "C", I am still still behind the eight ball when it comes to my first trip out. I got hung up in a family reunion down in the Smokies and used up my first good weather window. Looking for another one now. I concur driving is a lot easier, even though my "A" drove very well, it got a little hairy in construction sites on the interstates. Just tooooo wide. Good RV'g to you. Welcome to the "C" club.

Solving the Recliner Dilema

For those who don't have room for a proper recliner (which for me includes the Eurotrash types with their always-underfoot footstool), we bought our coach sans recliner & went with an Ikea "Poang" bentwood chair. It works great. A little bounce but not much so I get that movement, and it is a real efficient form factor compared to recliners & Eurotrashers I see in motorhomes & at shows. Lightweight and never moves while driving. You can get a wood finish & covering to match your interior. Not shown online are two leather options available in our local store, out the door for $220 w/tax that just went up, or you can go w/a fabric for under $100, and at that price change the cushion to suit your mood. Cushions sold separate from the frame at the stores for better options.

And no, I don't have any financial interest in Ikea.
