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 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?
