Getting ready to retire. Just my dog and I. One child in Key West, 1 in Colorado, 1 in Seattle. Thought I would buy a class C with a toad and go back and forth. Don't want to drive a class a and don't need that much. I would appreciate suggestions, opinions, advice. Which brand?
Look at the specs for that class C carefully. Many of them have really crummy towing capabilites and/or cargo carrying capability.
If you will be driving back and forth and staying at your kids houses, a class B might serve you better (lodging on the trip and driver when you get there). But if you will be staying in the motorhome, the class B will probably be too small.
If you will be staying at a kids place for an extended period, then a truck/trailer combination is another option. That way you only have one drive train (truck) to maintain and insure instead of 2 (motorhome and toad).
