That is true, we should look for what we like after all we've been working soooo long for it. You are right about the TV, specially since we don't have that either. LOVED the RV slang, have to teach my DH ... And yes we are looking for quiet, peace, nature, relaxation.... not hours setting up camp......... Thank y'all and this IS kinda' addictive.... Going for our first dealer tour the week of July 4th lets see how it goes ... so exciting!

Thanks again

Welcome! We too are new to the RV world.....so far we love it! We went looking for a used C and came home with a new 21' TT. We have a Nissan Xterra which was rated for our TT but soon found that a long wheel base TV makes all the difference in the world! I think in a couple of years we will still upgrade to a C but right now the one we have is working. We go to Flyball tournament's with our dogs and the size is just about right!

Not sure how far you are from Tampa, but this may be worth your time to see several models in one place:

Florida RV Summer SuperShow
June 19 - 22, 2014
Florida State Fairgrounds
4800 US Highway 301 North
Tampa, FL 33610

I can't say for sure but I suspect that it is just the box. The 30' TT we had was another 4' of open trailer tongue.

I too would strongly suggest going to the RV show in Tampa next week so you can get a good feel of all that is out there. You could also hit Lazy Days of Tampa (actually in Seffner, near I-4 & I-75 junction). I dealt with Curtis Suchan, tell him I (Wayne White) sent ya !

you are putting a lot of limitations to your choices.

two adults and two dogs, pulled by a v-6 SUV, to fit in a garage.

just to fit a garage limits you to a popup, A-frame or egg-shaped fiberglass trailer.
all of these will be very limited in floorspace for the 4 of you.

by the way, FR makes a very popular line of A-frames that have become big challengers to the Chalet and A-liner trailers, by offering more for less money.
