I don't know why I do this to myself but I want to make the right purchase for my first RV and I keep talking myself in and out of models with different features, it's literally driving me crazy!
I'm an older, single guy without a partner at the moment but really enjoy camping and I organize a trip every other year to spend three weeks out west in various national parks. We used a friends 32' toy hauler one year for that trip and I was hooked on RVing.
My problems are my storage space, tow vehicle, and trailer size limitations.
I have a Chevy Trailblazer with a 5600# towing capacity so I'm looking for an RV around or below 4000# UVW.
Even though I'm single there will be many times where I will be sharing my RV with other couples/friends.
I'd prefer not to pay for storage so my driveway is where I'll keep it so my total length is limited to around 27'
I have been looking at many of the Rockwood Mini Lite models as well as Hybrids from FR-Surveyor. Obviously with my limitations I will have to make concessions on some things but never owning an RV I'm not sure what is more important.
I can get the beds and living area with an expandable (hybrid) but I get the noise and other concerns associated with those models.
I can get the space with a Mini Lite and a slide but I'm loosing bed space (the dinette is an option).
I can get the bed space with the Mini Lite 2306 but it doesn't have a slide so living space is smaller.
I'm not sure what would be my order of importance in my decision and was hoping that some of you that have gone through these choices could offer opinions? I could solve my dilemma with a larger TV (and a larger RV) but that isn't an option for me right now.
Am I afraid of the hybrids? Yes a little for the reasons stated but I don't know anyone that's had them to give me advice on them. I really like the lay out and murphy bed option is the Mini Lite models but not sure which one would suit my needs best.
As you can see, I keep going round and round on this so please help!
