Excellent post, Johnny! You covered everything, and it is very well written. This should help a lot of first time buyers...

Wow, if I could have thought of all that before I bought mine, I probably wouldn't have bought any. That's way to mind confusing. I go the simple way, want MH - Buy - Don't like, trade get another.
Sooner or later I'll find one that works for me. No I'm not loaded, I'm just not going to live forever and don't have all that much extra time to put into something I want to do.

Thanks for "bumping" this topic to the top...I just started reading this forum and might have missed it. Your strategy makes things much clearer. Also, a comment about repeating questions that have been asked a zillion times before....Thanks for your PATIENT and HELPFUL responses. Newbies often don't realize they are bringing up such a question. The SEARCH option is often not too helpful, IMHO.

JohnnyT
Another great BIG THANK YOU !!!. We have decided to take the "leap" and purchase a Class A (currently own a popup). I had already started the process of researching, reading this forum (have a book printed already from you guys !!) and deciding which options are most important to us.
We plan on taking the next year to look, listen, and learn as we search.
Again, thanks, and I have printed this and added it to our "book"[emoticon]

Since the forum continues to grow I thought I might be helpful to some to run this one through again... Last time I looked about 100 new members a day... Thanks to all for your kind words and comments... I think BaldEagle's comments about the negotiating process is an area that I would like to see some additional input about...

I read it and I agree. Take your time and get what you think you want and just maybe it will be what you need. Have fun

Can you "delete" all the following postings and make YOUR post into a "sticky" for use here?

Dear JohnnyT,
I have spent hundreds of hours looking at forums, rv sites, on-site dealers, internet dealers etc in preparation of a large purchase.

You have successfully assembled, in one place, most of my questions and criteria into a simple checklist.

Thank you for the time and effort you spent on this posting.

Now I know why your the moderator.
