How happy are you with your present RV?

Did you make a great buying decision on your present RV? Or did you buy the wrong RV, at least for you, and now regret your decision?

We all know there is no “perfect” RV. But then what’s “perfect” for one RVer may be far from perfect for another. And, of course, there are RVs that have great floor plans and appearance that are mechanical disasters.

How about you? How happy are you with your present RV? Remember, it can take a few moments for the poll to load, so stand by. Your comments, of course, are welcome.

We have a Grey Wolf 26RR we owned for 4 years before going fulltime. We knew it wasn’t ideal setting out but figured out we’d adjust as necessary once we settled into the life a little over a year ago. Now we’re working on borrowed time with a rig that isn’t designed for fulltime life in a pandemic in which we don’t have options to remedy our situation. Or what we now call our “Shituation.” So no, not loving our rig. 😉

Love, Love Love my Tiffin 34PA. This is my 3rd Tiffin, and I finally found the perfect floor plan. Runs like a charm, I’ve added all the extras to this one because I know it’s a keeper! My other Tiffins were mechanically, etc sound too, but this one really fits the bill for me….

We shopped around two years ago with the idea of upgrading our 2011 gas motor home to maybe a 2016-17 gasser. Landed up buying a 2014 entry-level diesel pusher, Sportscoach, because it only had 15K miles on it and it looked brand new. Prior to the purchase, I was interested in a DP, only to scare myself away from one by reading to many RV forums.

Now that both my wife and I are retired and we prepare for our longest RV’ing trip yet coming in two weeks, we are excited to get out on the open roads with our Sportscoach!

We did a grunch of research, drew out the floor plan we wanted, fell back on the experience of our presently owned RV, and THEN went to the dealer to look at new ones.

My Jayco Alante 26A is the perfect sized RV for me. It’s easy to drive, easy to set up and has the perfect space for one travel nurse (unless I am VERY much in love with a second person). The only problems I’ve had have been taken care of with the warranty, and even then, it’s all minor stuff. The only thing I would change would be the uncomfortable love seat. It’s fine for an hour, but not for relaxing at the end of a day. Would have loved to have had a recliner instead.

We love our Casita! Perfect for us and the community of owners is like an extended family.

I love the layout of our TT. The build quality could be better and there are a few things I would change. Like how the black flush inlet is some 20 feet away from the black tank outlet and positioned directly above the electrical hookup.

This is our 3rd Class A. We bought our 2005 39F Meridian Itasca used in 2019 & love the floor plan, free standing dinette with long triple windows, residential fridge & huge pull out pantry!! We travel about 4-6 months a year & she travels well. Of course she’s not perfect & we’ve had slide issues in the lounge area (3 slides), but overall most needed maintenance has been on the honey do list & done. We’ve updated a few things & made the interior “ours”. I took down mini blinds & made blackout drapes to fit with tie backs at dinette, changed out the original 2 basin sink to a larger single basin stainless with a new gooseneck faucet, removed mirrors around stove & sink walls & replaced with stick-on stainless 1″ rectangular/square tiles which is modern looking & cleans well.Will not paint, but am going to subway tile the bath room area & toilet room next. At age 81 we will continue driving for only 5 yrs more, but with Meri!

2014 Passport 2200 RBWE, very happy with the limited time we have to use it. This our 2nd TT, our first was a Jayco 165. Loved that little trailer but it just got too small. We store our Passport at a Rv park at the coast. Weekend getaway !

It took three TT’s in a year but the Keystone Cougar 32rli that we bought in October has everything we wanted and then some.

1998 Jayco Eagle 246, 27 ft. No slides to give me problems. Front bedroom with no walls except for the rear bath. Makes it feel very roomy and can use the bed for extra seating. The best part, is, it has the second door on the left side by the bed. That gives me the ability to have the best cross ventilation I have ever seen in a RV. I would purchase a new trailer if I could find one with a door on the street side, it is fantastic. With no divider walls it feels like a much larger trailer. LOVE IT!!!

35ft Georgetown Class A gasser, and the best part is the triple slides. There could have been a LOT more things on it, and I’m finally getting around to adding an inverter, and I may add a few LiFEPo batteries. Soon I’ll upgrade the suspension and add some soundproofing under the cab because she is a noisy monster.

2016 LTV Serenity. Its lived up to its name. And remember once you buy an RV, you’ve just started to spend money.

Two trailers; one 34 ft. class a gasser and 14 years later we have our dream motor home-2006 Tiffin 40QSH diesel pusher. Purchased 2nd hand but in great shape. Only complaint is that Covid happened and only got to go on 3 trips.

My first and only RV the girlfriend found, a 1977 22′ motorhome for sale and pushed me to go look at it. It was in pretty decent shape for its age so we bought it for $300. Being a mechanic nearing retirement, I was able to repair what it needed. Had to fix a few other things the first few years but have really enjoyed going places with it pretty much trouble free the past 4 years. So overall, I’ve been happy. Everything works but the one thing I wish it had was larger holding tanks.

After hitting the RV shows, shopping and generally getting somewhat educated, we bought our first Motorhome in 2015, a new Winnebago View. Liked it then; still like it now with no thoughts of change. We are on the road about 4 months a year and when we are not on the road, we’ve done a number of mostly minor mods so it “fits” us better. We have about 50K miles on it, so not interested in a change; it meets our needs and fits our travel style well.
