So why did you choose your class?

So why do you have the unit you have?

For me a Class C makes the most sense. We love the idea of the big bus class A but for us we chose the class C for these reasons

- Wanted to be able to drive ours everywhere and not be limited on locations because of our size
- Wanted the bunk over the cab for extra sleeping space because of our large family
- Did not want to have to pull a toad because we were to large to pack up and drive off
- Class A looks awesome but you are forced to have a toad
- 5th wheel looks great but I don't want to tow anything and plus the family really can't relax in the coach on the interstate like you can in the motor homes

Whats your thoughts folks?

I got my 5th wheel because I drive busses and big trucks at work I just don't want anything to do with a bus when I'm not at work class A's and C's don't have any floor plans I would want

well, tried a TT 28' airstream, did not like it, too small, tried a 36' 5th wheel, thought it was too big, tried a super C found too many QC and designs issues, went back to 36' 5th wheel, same problem as super C went to a 34' Aviator TT, can't stand it, owe too much to dump it so thats how we ended up in a TT ( thanks FR for dumping them on the market at fire sale prices after I bought)

For us two retirees, the travel trailer is perfect. We drop the trailer at the parks and go about our business. One ride, and the trailer's floor plan was perfect. After tents, pop-ups, pickup bed trailers, park models, and several others, this is best for our lifestyle.

But that's us! Since there is no wrong answer to this question, whatever is best for each individual is all that matters. Too, we rent lots of homes off homeaway.com and vrbo.com, so not all of our travel is via the campground route. This past winter it was a home in Florida, and next winter it's south Texas. Two weeks ago it was Tennessee.

Good travels to all!

We went from a class C to a TT to a fifth wheel, its really personal preference. We didnt like being stuck to the camp site in the C, We really liked the TT but due to axle issues decided to upgrade to a fifth wheel for more room and a better sleep arangement for daughter and son inlaw.

Good answers. We love our 3170DS class C. Lots of room and has all the perks and amenities of home.

We have a TT that is very light for its size and has a very low profile. It is less than 30 feet. We need a separate vehicle for roaming.

we went with a TT cause we didn't have enough truck for a 5th wheel.

Had a 291 Surveyor TT but it was getting old so needed an upgrade. DW said she wasn't going cross country in the Dodge truck or the Hummer so went out and found the ideal Georgetown Class A. We love it.
We have friends with a Class C, but it didn't work for us.
Still trying to figure the right toad but in the meantime we bought 2 scooters and a rack and they work fine.
As for FR products we have found minor problems in both units but nothing that " Mr Fixit" can't handle.
