I now have a class C motorhome. We started camping back in 1969. We used my father's Truck camper. My wife like to camp but not the Truck camper. We found a used fold down and used it till 1974 and we got a new fold down. in 1987 we got a used 25' High- Lo TT. it was like pulling a fold down. But when it was up it had hard sides. The inside had the same things that all othe TT. have. We have had 3 Hi-Lo's. My wife had some bad health so we started looking for a Class C. motorhome. I used the internet to look and get a price. Then we went out and started looking at
Camper Sales. We new what we were looking for and about what price we would pay. You can get some good prices now.
If you have never been out camping I would rent one 1st. To make shure that is what you like. You can rent fold downs, TT, and Motorhomes. We have camped in 49 of the states and still going at 69.
Our children and grandchildren are still camping also. The best of luck
and Happy Camping. (let me know what you do.)

I was just talking to an acquaintance of mine this afternoon and mentioned to him that I saw a fancy class A parked in his driveway yesterday. I was a little surprised when he said he'd bought it. It looked like new to me, but he said it was a '96 with 28M miles on it -- a 32-footer. Cost him $10,000. There are some nice deals out there if you're patient and are ready to buy when the right one comes up.

Curious WyoNewk... Do you remember what brand your friend bought and was it gas or diesel?

Aus10, it was gas powered -- Ford 460. I did ask that, but I can't remember the brand and didn't ask. I saw a name on the side of it, but at the time I figured it was someone visiting so I didn't give it a second thought.

Anna,
I think normally a class A would have better weather protection than a C; they have more basement area and are often insulated better -- dual pane windows, etc. There may be exceptions....

If you're talking about 4-season 5ers, I'd guess it would be pretty close. I'd expect a well-appointed Teton or Double Tree to do better than any class A, but I'd also expect any class A to do better than my (weekender) Puma.

About 10 years ago Coachman which used to be just trailers...
bought out "Georgie Boy" and then started putting their name on those coaches.
I have an older GB... 30' gasser built on a Chevy.

Questions come in 3 basic flavors:
Chassis & drivetrain stuf (ford, workhorse, freightliner, etc)
Bolted on accessories items (generators, awnings, etc)
Actual framing and assembly work the maker did.
