|Where do I start?||Norm Rechtman||11-22-09|
|My girlfriend and I are both retiring next year and we we are very much interested in purchasing a Class-A motorhome, but where do we start? |
There are so many different brands and models. I know we want something around 40 feet. I believe I want to go diesel.
We have been to some dealers and shows and are more confused than ever.
I am also thinking that we should probably rent one and try it out for a period of time.
Can anyone point me to some websites where I can gather more knowledge?

Gathering info is a good start. You'll find an endless supply of different opinions. It's an interesting screening process.
I am about one year ahead of your schedule and would have benefited greatly from renting before buying.
Google will provide many sites that rent RV's.
You may find it useful to get familiar with the http://www.nhtsa.dot.gov/ web site. You can review complaints, defects, recalls, and tech service bulletins on all makes and models.
Several manufactures have failed but their products are still on the market and there are questions about warranty support. Good luck.
