Just Checking In. Hello everyone.
 
I am a new member with no RV at this time. I am doing my homework researching the different types of Class A's out there. Any suggestions would be great. I need to know what Companies are good and which ones to stay away from. Thanks for all the help.

Do some searches in the Class A forum. There have been many discussions on various coaches.

Welcome
 
The wife and have owned 2 Winnebago class A's and have enjoyed them a lot. They are affordable and have a great support system regarding parts, wiring,plumbing schematics going back many years and a lot of dealer support all over the country when traveling. Just our two cents.

It's more about finding a fit. As well some companies have some models that are strong or unique and others that you may find a better product from a competitor. It's also about

Floorplan - Take one company Thor for example, you can get a RUV, Challengers have some plans with Kitchen Islands, Outlaw has a garage and a loft... If you go used there are even more choices.

Chassis - Gas (if used UFO), Diesel (If used Mid engine, FRED). Engine brand (Ford/GMC/Cummins/MB yes even In A's (Reyos/Older units had OTR MBs), CAT, older units have Chrysler.

There is a lot to think about.

Length - Not so much for driving but fitting in. Some older parks can't handle the length (or height) of larger units. Or maybe you won't be able to deploy the slides.
I wouldn't set an absolute unless it's about fitment (or say your an octogenarian) but worry about floorplan more)

Feature - Whoa nelly. You can even find Sky Decks and Verandahs if you look Aqua hot, all electric, Select-Comfort, AGM battery banks, dishwashers, J-lounges, convection microwaves, auto-gen starts. This is literally the tip of the tip of the iceberg

Chassis take II - used brings even more choices for Diesels. Ask about Roadmaster, Alpine's etc.

Anyways welcome to IRV2.

:thumb::thumb:I have owned 2 Winnebago motorhomes and would probably own another one if age was on my side. My friend has a HR motorhome and is equally as happy as am I. Research, read forums, go to RV shows, campgrounds, and don't be in a hurry. Hind-sight is always 20-20. Good luck and welcome to our, :laugh:{I will walk out on a limb here}, good looking, handsome, and down-right smart group. :laugh:If you don't believe that, just ask us.:whistling:
