Sage Advice Sought

hi everyone

i am preparing to take a huge cross country trip (canada) with my soon to be 12 year old daughter. we are leaving when she is finished grade six at the end of june and plan to be gone all summer. we are both very excited - this trip has been a long time coming. we have sold our house and are ready to hit the road.

we want to purchase a motorhome that will be comfortable to do the trip. no worries about break downs thank you very much!! we also want something that we can comfortably live in for awhile when we return. it may be awhile before we are back into a regular house situation (if ever)...

so far i have looked at 28 fleetwood storm, 21 coachman freelander and a 25 itasca reyo. none of them seem to have the "full package" that i am looking for...

i would love to get my hands on a 24j navion as i think it might just do the trick...

here's what we need

over head bunk
dinnette sleeping arrangement
queen size bedroom
electric awning
at least one slide
new or very lightly used
prefer class a

any thoughts/suggestions would be welcome....

thanks so much and hey maybe we will cross paths at some point!!

I would strongly suggest that you find, and go to a good RV show. That would give you a veriety of MH's to look at and help you decide which one is your style. They have manufacture reps. there and they can answer any questions you may have and suggest other floor plans to you.
"Good Luck in your search and enjoy your trip(s).

When I started reading your post, I was thinking class B, but when I got down to the part where you are thinking about livung in it, I changed my mind. Small is OK when you are traveling around having fun. When you park and just live in it and the weather gets cold, the walls start closing in on you. I lived in a small TT by my self for a few months so I speak from experience.
Good Luck

Cab over beds are typically associated with Class C rigs - your post mentions you prefer Class A?

I think living full time in any MH is a challenge - doing so in a Class C just makes the challenge that much harder. Class C's generally do not have the storage of a Class A and that can become a big deal if your full timer.
