A lot of good suggestions so far.First off look for a floor plan you can live with. When I was looking for my next RV I had a few things that I wanted and did not.

I wanted to stay under 30ft so I could park at home and also be able to get into most everywhere that I wanted to go to. The one I ended up with was a Tioga 26Q. It measures out at about 27 ft. I have not yet found a place yet that it would not fit,it does take up 2 parking spaces in a lot with room on each end,all the national and state parks that I have been to it has fit.

The things I wanted was a fixed rear bed,I do not want to climb up into a cab over or have a jackknife sofa that made into a bed,had one in my last RV, they are terrible to sleep on and have to be made up each morning to have your RV back,also did not want a corner bed,they are hard to make and very hard to get into and out of.

I also did not want any slides,they add weight and cut into your carrying capacity,also they may or may not have problems but it was one less thing that I had to worry about.

As I said I got what I wanted with the fixed rear walk around on 2 sides bed,large storage area and a size that fit all my needs.

I would also suggest if you can get one that you like on a Chevy Chassis that would be a plus.

I did end up with what I wanted after a long and exhaustive search,it may be a Former Rental but I am happy with my choice as more than 100 other owners are.

Good Luck in your search for that RV that will fit all your needs.[image]

After test driving 3 different brands of Class C's, we went with a Minnie Winnie w the Ford E450. Love the build quality, V10 power is amazing, 6 speed trans is giving us a full 2mpg improvement over our older model with same engine. It's a pleasure to drive and camp in.

I have had two TT, one class A and now two class C motorhomes.

The first class C was on a Ford E350. This one is on a Chevy 4500. The stock Chevy 4500 does not get moved by big rigs passing. Crosswinds have to get into the 40mph range before you need two hands on the wheel.

Both class Cs had & have lots of storage inside & out. All the essentials from the class A fit into the class C.

My current Class C has a great floorplan for two. Even with the slide in that I almost never use. It has a 60x80 bed. The bed is offset so there is lots of walking room on one side. The larger of the two corner walk into showers was used. A four foot kitchen counter. A sofa bed with a dinette across on the curb side. Good insulation for when it is hot or cold. Most, if not all, interior panel seems are caulked. Lots of storage behind the entertainment center in the short cab over.

I really like the ability to get from the driver’s seat back into the house with no fuss. I have size 13 shoes and old legs.
