For that long a trip, you will definitely want to have a toad. You will want to see the sights and you do not want to drive the motor home around everywhere and hook/unhook every day.

Seriously consider buying an ex-rental. Cruise America and El Monte have websites with lots of information regarding purchasing from their rental fleet. In your situation, that strategy makes a lot of sense. You can get into a RV for a surprising figure!

Also have a RV that has had proper maintenance,one thing that may be missing from a private party.

For more on this option This Thread may be of interest,there are more than 95 members that have done this and are very happy with their decision.

Both major companies have a Rent to Buy Option which may save you more money on a purchase of a Former Rental.

nosebreaker,

I would also be in the camp to suggest you'd enjoy the motorhome experience better. The only suggestion I'd make is to consider 5-10 year old gas class A's in your search as well. They often have better visibility, larger storage compartments and larger holding tank capacities.

I don't believe you've given a price range, but if you get a motorhome that is over 5 years in age, the majority of depreciation has already been taken. Plus there are more of them out there for you to choose from.

As others have said, you might decide you like the RV'ing lifestyle and wish to keep the rig for future trips. Of course, if you really live in Boston (MA?), I can see where owning an RV would be a tough concept.

Good Luck,

~Rick
