This page are notes and links about our renting a Class C in August of 2015.
(Update January 2016) Received an email from the rental company. If we were to rent and conclude a trip before March prices are 1/2 off. As we live in Missouri it would be easy to head south for a couple weeks from here.
I’d started off thinking of doing a little research on Class C motorhomes just in case we want to buy one while we wait to retire. Another option would be to buy what will become our permanent truck two years before retirement. The truck would be new and then we would get a used basic fifth wheel, trading it in for our fulltime unit shortly after retirement. We have a lot to consider before making a move. This includes if this changes our budget at retirement and if we think we will use a rig enough to justify the earlier purchase.
(4/15/18) If you are thinking about downsizing to a class C, you might want to start reading the RV Dreams blog at this point. Howard and Linda moved from a 40′ fifth wheel to a 27′ Winnebago Aspect. They also bought a patio home in Florida at the Villages.
