Welcome to the forum silkenpaw!

I spent nearly about a year reading forums and shopping for the "perfect for us" class b before we found ours.

Seems reasonable. It is a major expense.

Welcome to the RV world. If there is a dealer near you that rents rv's, you need to try before you buy. This way you can see what you like end dislike over a weekend. I am sure you will enjoy the life in a RV.

Hi swadia,
Yes, I’m looking around for RVs to rent. So far, the only vans I have found have the kitchen in the back, not accessible from the inside. Not what I had in mind

If you have never had an RV before, try both a Class b and Class C. Class Cs are easy to find as rentals. As for Class B's, here are two sites.

Welcome...and you've found a great forum on class Bs. As mentioned, class Cs are viable too. A big diesel pusher class A I don't think would be a good idea unless you had some previous RV experience.
I at first wanted a Lazy Daze class C. They really are the best in class and have an incredible cult-like following. Check out their forum.
I became turned off to a class C because of terrible gas mileage, harder to drive around towns, and not nearly as stealthy.
It's just me and my dog atm though so a class B is perfect. I can park it in my driveway without ticking off my neighbors and it could actually become a daily driver! I would think for a couple it's great also. For a family is pushing it unless you all REALLY get along.
Of course, there are trade-offs and YMMV.
