Pull a trailer, haul motorcycles, street legal golf cart, or even a small car. Problem solved
if you live in a state that will give you an license plate for one of these, can drive a stick shift, and want a fun mobile. Check out the Oreion Reeper or the Durrux DRX2. Both are street legal side by sides in many states. Indiana plates them as a mini'truck. Michigan changed the laws so plating them is questionable, but if they have an out of state plate they are street legal. BTW, they both build four a four seater also.
It is amazing how some seem to be anti motorhome, but will spend 80 grand on a one ton dually and then another 60 grand or so on a 5er, when they could have a decent sized class "A" and a new toad for about the same price.
Make that a class "C" gasser and own the RV and the toad for the price of that Dually.
Everyone should test drive both and then make their own decision. Remember you will never find an impartial opinion on a forum.
I owned an older 26' 5er. When we decided it was time to upgrade we did a lot of research and weighed the pros and cons of each.
We finally chose a 2017 MBS Sunseeker 2400 WS and pull a NEO NAMR127TR trailer containing his and hers 2015 Honda Shadow motorcycles, along with all the camping accessories that would push the class "C" over the weight limit.
We get 13 mpg rolling down the road at 65 mph
I still have my 2004 Chevy Silverado 2500HD tow vehicle. Its rust free and only has 62K miles on it but it wasn't going to tow a 35' toy hauler down the road so we would have had to purchase both a diesel dually as well as the 5er.
Had we gone the dually/toy hauler route, I would have had to rent a place to store it when not in use. I can drive what I have up into the back yard and store it behind my work shop.
