Transplant Texan

Hi all,
I moved to TX from OH. My wife was raised in Corpus. Before the decision to move I was a recreational boater. I liked to cruise Lake Erie. Boating was so dependant on lake conditions not just weather. We started thinking an RV would be nice. All the things we liked about boating could be found in RVing. I started looking at 5th wheels. Then I was convinced a class C would be the ideal thing. A lot has happened since 08. I have very recently considered a hard side A frame. I would like something I can tow with a 2 door Jeep Wrangler. Yes I am aware even the smallest of hard side pop ups push the towing limit of a Wrangler. Reseaching brought me to this forum.
I figure a salesman will tell me what he thinks I want to hear to sell me.
Some others without experience may tell me what they want me to beleive they know. But one who has experienced will hopefully tell me the truth.
So I am here to lurk and learn from those with experience.

Thank you,
My father in-law never called me by my name. I was his "Yankee Son In-Law" or just the "Yankee". After we moved my mother in law gave me one of the bumber stickers that read I was not born here but I got here as fast as I could. All in good fun. I miss them both.

Welcome to south Texas Perry. Don't know why your in-laws called you a yankee, although a few southern folks sometimes say that about people living north of Waco, Texas. Sayin' that about people is really considered impolite and just not right for a native Texan.

You see... Ohio, Texas (now a ghost town on Plum Creek in Hamilton County) is really only slightly north of Waco, Texas, not really enough to qualify for the "y" word.

Seriously, glad to have you here, your wife must have chosen wisely. -ray

Welcome to the forum! Doing research now can be pretty helpful with having more choices later on. You are right about some salesman saying what is needed to make a sale. Unlike the salesman at the first lot I was lucky to end up with another salesman on the second lot that discouraged me from buying a TT that beyond my limits.


Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...
