So we have now owned class c for 5 weeks, 5 camping trips, and over 2k miles later. We love the decision except for 2 items....travel speed greatly reduced ...avg 55 mph even on interstates where we normally avg 70+, and fuel millage around 6-7...expected 8-10 depending on speed...other than that we love it...Kids sleep, we take showers, fix meals...etc while driving...

I own a class C and the wife and I predominately seem to always find an Enterprise place close by and rent a vehicle... they bring it to you and will take you back to your rv when finished. I'm sure I get better fuel economy and less wear and tear on not only a toad but on the motor home as well.. I am not out the expense of a dolly, hookup brackets for four wheel down towing and have no unusual backing problems while also not requiring a specific type of car... this is what I do but there can be reasons which can change your options...

I heard about the Enterprise rental. But, they don't allow dogs in their cars. That's the primary reason for buying our Toad. We did rent an Enterprise car for 6 days while in upstate NY this summer "camping" on a relative's driveway. It cost us $375.00 !
If we did that each month, we might as well have our own car, right?!

Just 2 of us and a small dog now. Not enough room in a C and did not care for pulling the toad with our A either. Tried the rental car route and not happy with tiny cars either. Either required another motor to maintain as well with an A or C. Best move ever to the 5er for us.

I have never read a cost justification on any RV that makes sense to me, however you crank the numbers. Cost justification is an investment concept, not a recreational/entertainment concept.

If you buy used and have DIY skills that helps a lot.



If what you buy is unfit for the purpose, it probably is because you focused too much on reading the pros and cons of each class AND asking for advice from others. It is best to get out there and gain some personal experience...that costs whether you get it by buying or renting.

We took our honeymoon in a slide-in truck camper. Our infant daughter slept in her bassinet in our first Class A. We lived with two young kids in a 22' Class C while building a new home. The only campers that we have not owned are pop ups, hybrids or 5ers. We now have a Class C primarily because we fish and boat. We would not feel comfortable pulling a 19' boat behind a 5er. So it boiled down to a Class A or Class C. If we were to have a permanent sight or not towing a boat, the thought patterns would be for a TT.

A Jeep Wrangler? Even a four door how does 7 fit in that. My co-worker has one and 4 adults is cramped.
