THOR #12315
Hello from Puerto Vallarta

After 10 full time years here, I am shopping with the goal of full timing in the States. Planning on a trip to Texas, soon, and looking at several coaches.

I was leaning to a Coachmen Concord 300TS, but now having second thoughts on that. I want to look at 29M Hurricanes as well. I'm thinking the 'C' will be a bit short of storage.

Previously, I had a 38' Carri- lite pulled by a F450.

Always open to opinions/advice.

Regards to all!

Welcome to the forum!

I am sure there will be plenty of folks who will offer opinions. I would say to make a list of the "must haves" and the "nice to haves" as well as the "deal breakers." Of course, if price is an issue factor that in. Go to RV shows. Go to dealers and look around. The dealer can make or break a sale, so make sure you are comfortable with them before you sign.

If you are heading to TX anyways..
Git over to Nacogdoces and take a look around...
You might be surprised in what you can find for quality used coaches at a reasonable cost..
For the asking price of a new coach... there are a lot of lightly used "upper tier" coaches available....

Here is just one place to lay a scope on.. (and use your current tow rig as a toad)
By being back in the states... have no fear of longer coaches... 40's and 45's get around just fine..................

ALL Pre Owned motorhomes Inventory

But just to warn you..drive a tag axle quality coach and you will never look back....

Welcome! RV's are kinda like shoes, lots of different styles and sizes. It can be a real challenge to find the one that fits, and your perfect fit can change over time.

We went from a 35' fifth wheel to a 33' gas Class A motorhome, to our current 26' Vegas. We don't full time, and we found that we don't need all the storage that our previous rigs had. And we found we didn't need as much inside space.

Your results will vary!
I think we need to stop calling it "working from home" and start calling it "living at work!"
