This kind of thing bugs me so much that I've actually stopped people and offered to do it for them.

Me: "Need help?"
Them: "I've go it."
Me: "No really, get out and I'll do it for you"
Them: "I'm not letting you drive my truck!"
Me: "You can't drive your truck, trust me I'll be faster"
Them: "%&$^ YOU!"
Me: "You suck, move"

And then it degenerates from there. Although I actually have had a few that said yes to help.

I watched that video soon after buying my trailer. #1 you have to know your route. #2 you can unhitch & put the vehicle in a better position. #3 ask for help & reverse out of the situation like he eventually did. I don't like to see someone struggle but the video turned out to be a great learning tool.

Back on the B subject - this could be a great topic.

#1 reason for me now is the usefulness of my van as a second vehicle. The reasons will change over time I expect. The travel part was #1 in the early years of B ownership for us. It would be a close second now.

#2 My wife can share the driving. She wouldn't/couldn't drive the Class C, but she can drive the B no problem.

I'd love to see this topic get to 100 reasons. I'd have to be less general and more specific I think.

Another reason:
I used the RT I had to move all of someones stuff to a new residence. It took two trip as they didn't have much stuff & I liked putting the van to use.

My favourite #1 reason is how easy and calm set up is, once we get to our favourite camping spot, rain or shine, pull in and turn off the motor, and were done, eat, sleep, shower, go out if we want to, its all ready. I cant tell you how rough it was camping with our previous pop up trailer, it was alot of work, and if its raining when we got there, we were all soaked, or try packing that up in the rain, it was no fun at all...... we love our class B,,,,,,

How about pride in our rigs as a reason? There's something about the limitations of Class B that forces creativity. It doesn't seem to matter if it's new or old - there's a million mods out there that we're proud to share with others.
