We have owned our 345 for over fourteen years and it has served us well. We have traveled west to Calgory, Ca., east to New York State, Cape Hatteras, south to Key West and many places in between. It has always got us home. This Summer we were in Sioux Narrows, Ontario with it.
Money Pit? How much money have you got in your Duramax? I'll bet I have a lot less in our 345 diesel. Probably get about the same mileage too.
We almost always tow a VW Jedda Diesel wherever we go. Why, ask my wife. She uses it to go to church.
The only thing you run into occasionally is the MotorHome bias exhibited by some trailer owners. I have heard such things as "slab sided", "Snobbish", High falootin", and so on. I pay no attention to trifles.
There are many advantages in owning a MH. Such as a built in genset and hydraulic jacks. If it's raining I merely start the generator and lower the jacks and we need not go out and get wet. You can think of many more.
We use a tow dolly so that we can tow any of our vehicles with no need to modify them. I can load or unload the vehicle from the dolly in much less time than it takes to set up a tow bar and brake buddy.
The problem will be finding a nice MH for sale as the owners tend to not sell them very often. The alternative is to buy one cheap and spend some time fixing it up.
