RE: First Time Buyer...Updated 03/06/2006

Johnny T, Excellent info! That was great info for anyone new to this site. As I'm a newbie today, I hope this will be acceptable on where to post. This is a general question and after reading many reviews, I'm still a little in the dark. I'm going to look at a nice 2010 Tiffin Allegro RED 36QSA in the morning. However, at $90,000 that seems high. Would I be right even though they have had upgrade on it? My wife stated I better get it right or that really will be my new home! Thanks to all who reply and what a great forum on rv.net:) I'm retiring from motorhoming and am selling my 2015 Tiffin Open Road 32SA if you are interested. It has everything and has always been stored under cover! Low mileage.

RE: MPG for Various Class A Motorhomes

10 mpg sounds more like a pick-up and is wildly optimistic. Yeah, RVers are like fishermen when it comes to bragging about the size of fish they caught or the MPG of their motorhomes. I get 6.7, so there.

RE: Have you thought about downsizing?

We had a 36 foot National Tropical and after 15 years decided to trade for a new one. Downsizing was/is the popular thing because folks are brainwashed to think a smaller RV is more energy efficient and we are doing our thing for the environment. To that I say baloney. We looked at those 24 foot (maximum length) Sprinters and they are cute in the showroom. On one of our trips, an owner took us on a tour of theirs. They had stuff piled up to the ceiling inside. There's so little storage in these, that I feel they are highly impractical. Consider that you are going to store a couple of folding chairs, a grill, maybe some tools and the usual cargo. Those teeny-tiny basement compartments are useless. Inside isn't much better. Room for maybe a frying pan and a couple of cans of beans. Further, they cost as much as a larger rig and fuel consumption isn't different enough to make my wallet change thickness. But, you are the RVer. Buy what you want/like and have fun. Oh, did I say where will the dogs sleep?
