What are you looking for year and size wise?
Thank you all for the warm welcome I am looking forward to meeting some of you at a rally one day!
Ah! There's a good question! I am a large person and the smaller rigs just wouldn't have the space I need to feel comfortable, I also have a large dog, so something in the 25' and longer range would by my goal. I will need to make sure the sleeping quarters fit me comfortably too
The class C I had the bunk was an inch or two short and that made sleeping an exercise in futility
I don't want to do that again.
The right vintage unit would be fine if by vintage you mean a late 70's rig or newer. I am not into doing "to the studs renovation" A bit of repair, replacement on a rig that is sound is more my style.
Speaking of style I like to spend time in the boondocks for a for weeks at a time and enjoy nature. Therefore I would be adding solar as soon as I could to enable me to be independent of the grid for longer periods. I look at my rig as my cabin by the lake my chalet in the mountains the cottage by the shore my own guest house when visiting relatives. The rig will be my home my only home until I go dingy in the brain box and then ? Who cares? I won't
In the mean time I'm going to have as much fun as I can and enjoy this wonderful country of ours on the road
