  1. Yes, I have shopped both classes. Thanks for the tip to look over the underside and check for anything that looks like it might be a clearance issue.
  2. This is what I asked: What would the difference be between: a) cost of maintenance b) ability for a small Class A to be driven down the same roads as a Class C? Would anyone advise to stay with a Class C for someone that wants to boondock alot? A few gave some great things to think about. Thanks a bunch to those. Others climbed up on their high horse to talk about their Class A, as if it's the best thing since sliced bread. Then the arrogance of some to read their crystal ball and make statements that I "need validation" from them. Give me a break. What rubbish! I see this in many forums. The Class A crew spewing off about how great their Class A is. How much it costs. Blah Blah Blah.
  3. Who cares? I didn't ask about what you're posting. What's your prupose for this remark?
  4. Wow! You have never met me or spoken to me. Yet you can make a personal assumption about me? Hopefully I can avoid such arrogancy when on the road. Anyway, my apologies for ruffling your feathers. Hoping your day brightens up a bit. Jimmy
  5. Thanks for all the replies. I think a Class C will be the right fit for me. I simply don't need all the extravagant features of a Class A. I'm single and plan to stay that way so a Class C will be plenty. Plus, it seems like a hassle to find someone to work on a Class A. The majority of house issues I'm confident I can resolve on my own. But the running gear is a different story. Seems easier to find a shop that is willing to make repairs on the simple Ford chassis. Like someone else mentioned, this should be fun. I think a simple Class C would fit the bill for me. Maybe 10 years down the road I'll consider a Class A but for my first set up a Class C will be a good learning experience. Jimmy
  6. Why would the rear overhang be any different than a Class A when backing up? Same here, I don't need all the foo foo things. This will be my first RV. I'm single, retired military, 58 years old. I don't need much. I want to be able to bee bop out in forest areas but not be crunched in a tiny rig. I have no desire to full time in RV parks, too many people. I really want to be out in the open, whether it be in some wooded State park or desert BLM land. Most of my time will be spent between Texas and the west coast (northern). A Class C that has a couch with rear bed would be perfect. Or a Class A of similar size would fit the bill too. I know what too small for me would be, but not what too big would be, getting into the "off the beaten path" dispersed areas.
  7. Does the overhang of a 33 footer ever jam you up? Does it drag alot?
  8. True, and that's why I mentioned the smaller Class A's seem to have more room.
  9. Hello all. New member here. I have made up my mind to go full-time. I plan to boondock and park at out of the way places. I really don't have any desire to spend much time in RV parks. I'm thinking an ~28 foot Class C. When I look at smaller Class A's it seems the bang for buck is with them. What would the difference be between: a) cost of maintenance b) ability for a small Class A to be driven down the same roads as a Class C? Would anyone advise to stay with a Class C for someone that wants to boondock alot? Jimmy
