I have been hearing stories about class C RV being under powered, especally for towing, is this true? Seems odd with the huge engines that they come with these days.
I also have heard that many of them are very top heavy and their handling is poor.
And lastly, their CCC is extremely limited.
I don't mean to offend and if I do, sorry. I just want to ask true veterans their take on Class C issues. And yes, I do plan to rent one to get my own take on them, just thought all the nice patient folks out there would love to share their vast wealth of knowledge. :)
Just wonder if anyone has experience with buying a rental unit from a national company. Or do you know of anyone who has or even heard stories of anyone who did.
Most of these RVs are considered to be mid to low mid line units made from companies with "average" at best reputations. They also are fairly stripped down mostly and most come without slides, awnings, or levelers.
Are they worth the lower cost?
I am sure someone will tell me the obvious "You get what you pay for" but then how many people overpay for what they get?
If you are just going to be negitive please keep it to yourself. :R
Now this question may seem stupid to some of you but it is something that bugs me.
RV roofs, why is it that manufacturers, many, not all, seem to avoid that they use a "rubber" roof, one of two types. I know that it is cheaper and does not last as long as a fiberglass one. But if I was totally ignorant of it and damaged my RV because of a roof issue I would think that it would cause the manufacturer issues if there were too many like me that felt "taken in".
And I know that weight is cussed and discussed time and time again. But my question is why do some RV dealers avoid the subject. It would seem to me that if they knowingly sell a trailer to me and watch me tow it away with a vehicle not rated for the weight and it causes an accident they would be civilly liable. Am I correct? Has a dealer been sued for this?
I have been researching living full time in an RV for several years, I have spent more years planning than I wanted to but life throws you curves and you just deal with it.
My question is about the designed intended use of RVs. This ranges from "weekender/vacationer", "snowbird" or "full time". This hardly gets mentioned when you talk to a salesman unless they are showing you a full time rated RV and then it seems to be a positive sales point. I am sure that many people live full time in an RV rated for less use but could it cause you issues?
Warrentees, could this be considered abuse and could cause issues with your warrentee? Say I am living full time in an RV rated for weekending? An issue?
Loans, will a lender refuse a loan because of use. Could it be a violation of the loan agreement? Is it something I have to tell them?
Insurance, I hear mention of "Full timer insurance", does the insurance company insist on a full time rated RV?
I have been reading this blog for years and never see this topic come up.
Thanks for any positive input anyone can provide.
