New to Site and doing research, WTB a Used Class A DP.
We own a Home in the NJ and one if Fla.
I also have one son who plays Div 1 football another who plays college lacrosse we tailgate a lot felt it would make traveling and Tailgating a lot more comfortable and would not have to go so crazy trying to book hotels.
My initial feeling is to go a little older and higher quality to stay in my budget.
I have been a Boater my whole life but new to the land Yacht thing
Help
Thoughts
Suggestions
Thanks
Pete

Keep doing research on IRV2 & other sites. Lots of information out there, if you search the IRV2 forum you'll find posts discussing this very issue.

IMHO I think that you are on the right track, finding an older DP will serve you well and depending how old & model may be easier to understand the systems and understand them.

I would spend some time visiting RV lots and looking at different make model of coach and determine what your needs are.

We upgraded from a Class C to a ~38' Class A DP. A very nice coach and provides for plenty of room. My wife goes to dog shows and it's nice being able to stay in your own "house" while traveling.

Good Luck
Jim

Welcome aboard! WRT tailgating - for college football you still might have to get reservations as I'm guessing you know. Sure is fun though!

Enjoy your new rig when you join us!
