Default Hi from a newbie looking for a Class B

Greetings All!

It's time for me to get out and travel the country!

My lovely wife of twenty years, Laura, passed away in 2015 (no worries... Laura is FREE!!!). I was her primary caregiver (10 years? 15? A lot!) and pretty much relegated to the house for many years. I have since met a wonderful woman &, like me, we want to start a new life together and explore... while we still can

I have been researching Class B RVs and discovered this forum. I see I will find abundant experience and information here from friendly RVers.

Looking forward to a new experience.

Enjoy your day, your RV, your life!

Tony
North Atlanta area, Georgia, USA

Hi Tony,
Traveling the country is wonderful, my wife and I have been doing it for several years. It is great!
Have you considered a B+. For many reasons we are having to sell our Rialta. It has been a great vehicle, comfortable seats and very unique on the road. However, it is a long way from Georgia to Iowa. For that reason, mine is probably not a reasonable consideration for you.
If you want to see pictures, Craig's List, DesMoines, RV and a search for Rialta will give you some pictures.
Good luck in your search!
Don B.

.

I would go to the RV shows and experience the rigs first hand.

There are a few large shows that have everything in one place...
but you don't have to go to the biggies, they might overwhelm you.
You can start by visiting RV dealers nearby.
There are lots of video on youtube; they are helpful.

I would look at the big names first -- Winnebago, Pleasureway, etc.

Have fun, and don't rush. Take your time to choose the right one.

Yes! I've been researching online. Would love to find a show to attend. Big shows all the more exciting. Thanks BBQ

Thanks Don B. I may consider a B+ after seeing one. I have been drawn to the smaller stealthiness of B. I don't think I would go C or A because I want to park anywhere including big cities without struggling to find parking. I'll take a look on Craigslist. Thanks again.

Thanks! I just drove by Hershey back in June. Unfortunately I can't make it there this year.
