beginning the process
Hi all. My wife and I are new to RV's, never having owned one before. But we are two years out from our planned retirement and have long planned to see the country starting in September 2017, maybe 6 months at a time on the road.
A couple years ago we still had the "romantic" vision of taking our motorcycles on this journey, but recently have realized at our age that really wouldn't be as comfortable as we want, plus riding on separate bikes would be a drag over such a long trip.
A couple months ago we were focused on an Outlaw Toyhauler class A, allowing for the bikes while burning through long miles in comfort together. But so far the Outlaw hasn't gotten us excited due to the lack of a good bed alternative, the loft is too small.
So now we are thinking about a Challenger. Looks perfect except we would need to pull a car, but that's no so bad. We can get lots of riding in over the next two summers and then put the bikes in storage for awhile.
We would love to hear any thoughts from others who have been through this decision process. As of now I think we would be looking to buy in the early summer 2017 to be able to test some before hitting the road in September. Is that enough time in your thought?
Anyway, looking forward to offering more to this forum as we proceed and eventually become an owner. So greetings from Maine, hope to see you on the road in a couple years!
