How about getting yourself a small Class A RV ?

After 6 years with my 30 feet 5th wheel and Ford F250 -
I deserve a class A bus. Yes ?
For 2 retired folks - hiking - biking .
But which one ?
No longer that under 30 feet.
Diesel or Gas.
So many choices.

Would like to get input from people who have done the swich .

Greetings, Harold

I use to have a Jayco 28’ Class C gas. Thing you have to remember is you have to pull a car to get around in or anytime you want to go anywhere; you have to pack everything up. Unless your content with bikes and walking. The other reason we switched is because the insurance companies consider it a second home; with higher insurance and taxes. (Because it’s a motor home) That’s why we switched to a 5er.

My sister has a class C without the leveling jacks ---- make sure you get the leveling jacks otherwise its a real pain to level. To add to the towing a car -- that is a real pain to back-up. On vacations sometimes we have to wait until she can pull forward to clear/leave the gas pumps.

Gas or diesel depends on the size and weight.

What ever you decide let us know.

We've had 3 MH's over the years, and after the last one I said no more.
The 5th wheel is so much easier in my opinion. Plus, it's one less engine to maintain.


The picture in the previous post is just one choice for you to consider in your quest.

I would recommend the diesel. Better milage and usually longer life than gas engines. You have to remember you will always be driving a fully loaded truck or bus and that is where diesels come out on top.
