Just bought a 2014 Coachmen 29qb. Selling my 5th wheel, just got to be too big to haul around.
Looking forward to learning all about class C.

Good luck with your new unit. I wish you many safe miles.
A fiver was one of my past rv’s as well.
During covid , having use of a smaller 24 ft ‘C’ was a life saver. We were able to use it for many day trips . It was something we could not do towing a trailer. You just have to get used to the rattles and groans inside a rolling along motorhome. It’s not as quiet as the pickup.

Stay on board, let us know how you’re doing.

You will probably notice that the ride is harsher because of stiff rear springs. Rattles inside are not unusual, separating pots and pans with rubberized anti-skid stuff helps quiet them. Make sure drawers have good devices to keep them shut. Take glass turntable out of microwave to keep it from falling out and breaking. Anything that can fall down, probably will, when stopping suddenly or turning sharply. Watch right rear with side mirror for motorcycles and cars that sneak in while you are changing lanes or heading for an off-ramp. Enjoy your new toy.

BTDT. Can get around in it with no truck to go grocery shopping etc, but have to leave a lawn chair and a bucket in the site so nobody tries to grab it while we are away.

Got a rear view camera with the monitor that goes up on the rear view mirror on the front window with elastic bands. What a difference in some situations to be able to see what is right behind you! (There are different kinds of cameras, but whatever works for you--ours looks out the back window)
