Hi, our original plan was to buy a class"C" motorhome; We wanted the smallest one that had an island queen bed. [27 to 29 feet] later we switched our thoughts into buying a trailer.
(1.) We were still working at the time and whatever we bought would have to sit in-between vacation times until we could retire.
(2.) If the RV was going to sit, with a trailer and tow vehicle, only half of our investment would sit while we could drive the other half. [tow vehicle]
(3.) We figuered with a motorhome we could drive faster, legally, but like my brother who has a class "A" motorhome, he tows a Saturn and that means [Saturn as trailer] he has to drive at the lower speed limit too.
(4.) My brother agrees that hitching my trailer and hitching his toad is about the same work and time.
(5.) Fuel mileage, for us, is better with towing a trailer compared to the motorhome.
(6.) We have very limited space for parking on our property; Most motorhomes and some SOB trailers are too high to fit under the eaves on our house.
