Hello all from Massachusetts. My wife and I are looking for a used rv, preferably a class A diesel. As our youngest of 4 children is off to college this fall, we are finding ourselves with more time to travel. We have always loved traveling and do so in different modes. We are also avid motorcyclists and will probably be trailering a motorcycle trailer behind our rv. We recently sold our boat to help us finance a motorhome. So that's a little about us and we look forward to learning and sharing with the members here

Thank you everyone. I also plan on contributing to the site. I have done that on many forums before and have even set up some of my own previously (very basic )

Medico, beautiful rig you have there. I just spent a lot of time looking at it. But ultimately it's too large for what I am looking for right now. We believe we'd like to be around 30' in length or a little more perhaps. That's because I will also be towing behind it a 20' long motorcycle trailer most times. Or perhaps a vehicle

Good luck with your sale

Welcome aboard,
30' will not get you into a Diesel Pusher. They start in the 35' range. If you are going to tow a trailer or vehicle, you want to pay attention to the GVW and towing capacity of the motorhome.

If you are not sure what you are looking for, you might Take a look at this link to RV.ORG. I used it in my search and it really helped me decide what to look for and what to stay clear of. It was a $150 well spent IMO.
