RE: Pros and Cons of owning a class A RV

Wow! Certainly a lot of information here. Wide variety of opinions too. Several of the earlier posts had me convinced that I was going to get a MH. However, TOMMAN58 addressed some of my real concerns. Since I am retired and on a limited income, no way I can afford new, or even a "newer" model of MH. I bought my 5er (2006 Cougar) and the truck (2003 GMC 2500HD with 72,ooo mlies) as a package in 2013. They were in amazingly great shape and I did my best to keep them that way. Previous owner changed the factory tires to better ones, and in five years never had to replace tires or do brakes. If I did there were only four wheels. Tomman58 mentioned replacing tires for a motorhome, and the cost and availability of parts if you break down somewhere. That really concerns me. As well, I can only imagine the cost of doing a brake job on a MH. These concerns would definitely have merit if I purchase an older MH.

RE: Pros and Cons of owning a class A RV

When we sold the truck and 5er, we put the money into a newer model small car, which is great. Getting another trailer means I have to buy another truck. That's another reason I'm leaning towards a motorhome.

Pros and Cons of owning a class A RV

Owned a truck and 5th wheel for 5 years and loved it. Unfortunately circumstances caused me to sell both last fall. Thinking now about buying another when I saw a 1999 Class A with less than 100,000 miles and very clean inside. Price was very reasonable. To my surprise I have seen a few others that appeal to me also. (older, clean models with low mileage). Any suggestions as to pros and cons of Class A vs 5ers. Anything special I should be looking for in a used one? Vehicle would be used for one trip annually from southern Ontario to Florida, plus a few summer camping excursions nearby.
