We have 32' class C and since we often tow boat we haven't setup a toad. I would not attempt to take it into downtown areas like Atlanta or Savannah due to limited parking but it has been fine for going to Walmarts, grocery stores, restaurants, etc.

Class C in. Mall parking lot is nice. Give the DH a nice place to relax while the DW spends his $$$$.
You need fairly big parking spots for a MH.

I think you need to look at your style of camping. We have a 24' Win Aspect B+. Its fine in shopping centers where you can take up two front and back spaces. Where its tough is large metro downtowns. You can get around that by using public transportation.

We have the option of either towing a car or not. If we are going to an event where we are stationary most of the time, the towd stays home. If camping and sightseeing, the towd comes along.

We also found a 24' B+ is short on storage space, so a towd is handy for extra stuff.

What the towd costs in towing, approx one mpg, it makes up when you use it sightseeing, in our case, about 9-10mpg towing, 28 mpg sightseeing.

BTW We also had a travel trailer and switched to a B+ and we went through this very same dilemma! We were fortunate that our second car was towable.

Before buying the towing equipment, we did the following.
We went to our favorite campground with just the B+, did the things we liked to do. Worked out fine. Then a few months later, repeated the trip, but had my DW follow in our Honda. Parked the RV and drove the Honda. Really enjoyed having the little car. Not only was it easier to get around, but we were able to go places we couldnot when we had our big Ford TV.

Bottom line, main thing is to have fun camping, whether its a tent or a 40' DP. This forum is a great place to think out loud and get other opimions.

Enjoy, and let us know the outcome!

We have a travel trailer now, and are looking at a small motorized unit like a B+( and am wondering what you guys do for local transportation when you are at a camp site. How do you get to the store for groceries or go sightseeing? I really don't want to tow a vehicle, so am wondering if a B+ is small enough to pick and go into town, etc.

Your insight will be appreciated. Thank you


We started with a class-B but quickly found it to be too small for two people. We would just unhook water and electricity and go to town or the nearest stores.
