Keep in mind what you buy now might even work for you if you begin full-timing. There are many full-timers who travel in a smaller RV. It just depends on your needs. Some even full-time in a truck camper. One good thing about a Class A (& there are many more) is that you'll have more storage space than in a C. So if you do go full-time that space will be needed.

Good luck in your decision.

One thing not mentioned and we didn't know it till we bought and started traveling; if you like this kind of stop there are Luxury Motorcoach Resorts that will only accept a class A (some have age and length restrictions as well).

We do not stay in many of these but we have found one we have been to about five different times and another we have visited maybe four times, we thoroughly enjoy these two stops in our travels.

Went from a 28ft class C to a 32ft class A . The class A has way more storage , larger fuel and propane tanks , as well as 100gal fresh water tank vs 30 gal on the class C. Access to the engine for maintenance is about the same for both. The hydraulic leveling jacks are a real plus on the A.

Thanks, at this point in time the FT game plan is to take my bike on a Hydralift along with a toad. I'm thinking in this scenario I would require a DP.

Thanks,
Rick

The more I research and hear from others regarding the pros and cons of both the more I'm convinced the A would best suit our use.

Thanks,

When I made the decision to go from a Class C to an A, one of my "must have" features was a drivers door, for the convenience! For fueling, getting out to check before backing, punching in key code at storage lot, etc. You should check during your search to see if the drivers door was an option for any model year for the Bay Star or any other Class A you're interested in, food for thought

I'll second the driver's door. Don't use it as much as I get older, but the relatively easy access to under the dash fuses, etc. make it worth it even when not used for fueling, etc.

Love our drivers door also. Got spoiled with having one on the old rig.
