Welcome aboard, Joe. You've come to the right place, so ask whatever questions occur to you, even if they seem like "dumb" questions.

May I suggest that you also look at small Class A motorhomes.  They cost the same as a Class C and generally offer a bit more interior room and greater storage underneath.  In fact, you can probably get a 28 foot Class A for the price of a 24 foot Class C.

Thanks RV Roamer for your insight.  The only thing about a Class A is when I drove one it seemed like I was always looking at the rear view mirrors and trying to stay in my lane.  It was a little intimidating.

Hi Papa Joe,

The only thing about a Class A is when I drove one it seemed like I was always looking at the rear view mirrors and trying to stay in my lane.

When I first got our Class A--our first MH of any class, I too found I had to work hard and continuously to stay in my lane until . . . .

. . . I centred the rig in a lane (no traffic around) and then put a piece of scotch tape on the dash that lined up the centre-line and right side of the roadway markings with my line of sight (peripheral vision) as I looked down the highway as I might when following traffic at a safe distance.  Then without looking in mirrors (which takes the eyes off the road)  I'd line up the scotch tapes with the roadway markers and that put me back in the centre of the lane.

Ciao,

Doug
