Re: I think I've been approaching this wrong...

Flipping through posts I saw the '91 with only 50000 miles for $8,000. A new one would loose that amount the day you drove off the lot.

There are some threads on here like the best things and biggest wastes done to the rig. I have spent money and time on things I have never used.

There are Sportsmobiles and other Class B one can rent. Might be a place to start.

Brad, that's what I'm counting on!

Thanks, xcnick. I've heard that renting a Class B is expensive, but I guess it would be cheaper than spending money on something I don't end up using, or regretting.

Re: I think I've been approaching this wrong...

My wife and I couldn't decide on gas or diesel, RB or EB, electric top or manual top. So we bought a used one to see what worked or didn't work for our use. We planned to keep it a year. That was 7 years ago. Now that we've had the top converted to the electric operation, we plan to keep it a long time.
