Not a crazy idea....just do your homework. We went from downsizing to a smaller trailer and Tundra, and then decided we need more room in our garage and while traveling. Due to our budget, we stayed with a gas class A but spent a little more to get a Newmar (would have considered others). After purchase, we purchased new tires, replaced one AC (under extended warranty), had the front end aligned and installed a Roadmaster steering stabilizer for the front axle. It handles pretty well on the road and meets our needs. We love the convenience and size. As pointed out above, if you arrive in bad weather, you can put the stabilizers down, extend the slides and then wait for a break before taking care of power cord, water and/or sewer hose. When stopping overnight, you can simply just plug in the power cord, water hose if desired....or just stay "self-contained". We also enjoy having a smaller vehicle for sightseeing, running errands, etc.

A 60k budget isn't going to buy you a 170k rv.

I didn't think that was a 170K coach. some one thought it was a good deal, because it is no longer on the page....
