My wife and I have been full time for over eight years and were part time for two in the beginning. When we were first looking I spent a long time reading Forums, RV.Net, Irv2 and rvforum. I read these three for at least a month, steady, every day for as long as I could stand it. Some stuff was boring and I soon learned what section was of interest and dug into a lot of areas. I kept a pad on the desk and would write down questions as they came into my head and was amazed that soon, I would answer my question from someone else's experience. When I did not find a answer I would enter and ask a question. Very soon my question would be answered and I would continue to read different threads for days.
After I began to feel comfortable about actually looking at units, my wife and I ventured forth to begin our quest. We had decided on a 34 ft or so Motor Home, diesel if possible and after a few days of searching we found what we were looking for. It had 54,000 miles on it and we felt comfortable in it. It was Winter time and we would go to the Dealers lot where it was on Consignment and just sit in it and dream. After a couple months, maybe 10 day visits, we felt comfortable enough to make an offer, started at a price we felt comfortable with and well below the asking price. We bartered back and forth and finally agreed on a price. We were allowed to drive it 3 times for a half hour or so each time with the salesman and set it up in the dealers lot, slides out, water hose hooked up and generator running one afternoon. Finally, after some tweaking on the final price, we drew the money out of savings and closed, cash on the barrel head and drove away.
A couple years later, we decided to go full time and sold our 34 footer for a 40 footer, went full time and have not ever regretted our choices.
I still review the three forums, post replies when I feel they are appropriate and we purchased memberships as noted in our signature.
Five more states and we will have the lower 48 covered and still find ourselves enjoying what we are doing.
Good Luck to you in your quest for the rig of your choice, Happy Trails, and perhaps we will meet you out on the road.

Good Luck and Happy Trails.
Just another place or thing to check is your windows and vents. If you by chance have a window open, the exhaust can come from the rear to the front and into the open window. I forget what the term is but the air can travel between the sidewall and the air coming off the front of the coach. Every once in a while my co-pilot will open the window in the toilet room and the coach will fill with diesel stink. I pull over and check the windows and will find a window slid open or sometimes the over head air vent will be open, without the fan being on and the smell comes in there.
My Wife and I stopped at Green Mountain for a couple three days last Fall. Very peaceful and restful place in early October. Nice color in the trees across the Valley. The music from the stream was easy to slumber to although we missed a chance to do any fishing.
We enjoyed our stay and would go back again.
We run a 40 foot Motor Home and had no problem with the roads or back in sites.
We have been full time members of Thousand Trails for almost 9 years now and would recommend membership in a heart beat. Hope you enjoy your travels.
When we came out on the road, we decided we wanted Internet Service! We bought a connection and paid a monthly fee... ATT and it didn't work well so after two years we changed to Verizon and have loved the service. It cost but the service is worth it. Until my wife got a Kindle Fire I was spending too much for Internet! Now she arranged the Hot Spot and we both use it for $10.00 a month less than before and no more complaint about the cost.
We are very happy. We have always been independent and do not expect a CG operator to provide Internet. If one wants it, one should pay for it!!!!!
Good Luck and Happy Trails
Bet it was LL BEAN!!!!!
