Which motorhome or RV would you choose and why

Which motorhome would you choose? That's the question that hubby and I are asking ourselves right now.

As camping enthusiasts I suppose that the decision inevitable. We have decided to take the plunge and buy a motorhome or camper van as soon as we get our debt load down a little more. If you've read my travel articles you can bet that I'm tickled pink.

Class B
One van that keeps drawing our attention is the Roadtrek Class B motorhome. It is larger than a camper van but has more maneuverability than a very large Class A or a larger Class C with an overhead sleeper.

We've noticed several Roadtrek Class B motorhomes on our travels. The owner I talked with had nothing but good things to say about it and neither did his wife. This definitely helped bump it up on our list.

Class C
The Class C motorhome seems to have more space than you might think at first glance. But, it can also have a problem in some parking garages. It looks like the low overhead space might make it difficult to navigate some parking garages.

Our choice isn't easy. Every motorhome has its own special features. We're leaning toward a small size but haven't decided which one yet. What do you think? Which motorhome would you choose and why? Leave a comment to let me know.

Pop-up camper
Ultimately, we ended up purchasing this pop-up camper. It meets our needs for now and I love it.
