too many miles for me.
so, advice for selecting:
gas or diesel
diesel provides better mpg, but the increased cost reduces the $ advantage.
gas is more plentiful, easier to get worked on
a domestic ( I have a chev) can be fixed by anyone anywhere with parts from autozone or napa. an import may have a supply chain back to germany or Italy and require specialized knowledge or tools- especially electronic controls. May also require special maintenance- such as you adding DEF to a tank
a chev or ford may allow you to buy tires and batteries at costco...an import probably not...my tires are under $200 each
layout- ? what works for you?
youtube sales videos are great to show the typical features on various models- WATCH how the sales guy moves around- like tripping on a dropped floor model or having trouble opening cabinets or turning around due to narrowed spaces
shopping- there are dealers ebay and craigslist as well as models posted on this site and others
Home - Road Trek International
you can compare prices and comparison shop.
if searching craigslist look for mis-speelings.
my Pleasure-Way can also be a pleasureway or a pleasure way.
I have seen ads for roadtreks, road treks and roadtraks.
little errors can conceal a deal from shoppers.
My PW's previous owners had run an ad for a month with zero responses probably due t a spelling mistake- they were eager to sell and I probably saved thousands because I searched strategically.
( I also found one of my Harley's like that- the model misspelled...)
a B has a very high cost per sq ft than other RV's like a class C
our advantages are parking, ease of driving and mpg
I did look at slightly larger RV's but my parking situation at home would have been tricky ( I have room but also had about 8 cars at that time)- and my Wife wanted to ( and has) be able to do solo trips out of State to see Pals. The B makes that easy
hope this helps, Mike
