Mama's thinkin' about her retirement... :eek   We went looking at travel trailers and ended up liking a double slideout Fleetwood Class C.

MOHO's...what's your take/preference/experience, Cousin Eddie included.

I think we'll rent a few to see how it fits us...

That would be the "smart" thing to do, what suits some don't suit others, this way there won't be any unwanted surprise/regrets after you buy one... :good

These are fairly nice class C's if you don't like the class A's.

Class C MoHo   :good    :D

Perhaps you might use yours more but insurance company's say the average use per year is 3 trips. Might save a bunch by renting.

I'm thinking of going back to a truck camper. we are out side all day any ways, plus I miss going off the beaten path using the 4 wheel drive if needed. I want a bigger truck so that fits the plan.

We had one for a while and we liked it, liked the fact you could take it off and use the truck for whatever and didn't have to unhook/hook up everything all the time. :good

What I've found that strikes my fancy is the Class B+ rigs.  Pretty much a Class C without the overhead sleeping.

Though if I were to buy another one it'd be a Class A with slides.  I want the room.  

And no Phylon (fiberglass)... all metal contruction please.
