Adios!

Just wanted to thank ya'll for your helpfulness while I was researching my next RV. I have ultimately decided to go with a different manufacturer. Hope to see you on the road someday!

Hi Bob,

We have decided to order a new Lazy Daze class C motorhome. I had one years ago and really enjoyed it!

My wife wanted a Motorhome, but when I pointed out all the times we leave the campsite and go exploring, she realized a trailer is our best choice.

I hate towing which is one reason I like Escape. The low weight, low aerodynamic profile tows so easy. I donít know how people pull those big 8í wide tall stick boxes. We were getting 16 mpg towing the Escape 17b with the 4RUNNER. Iím not to interested in 7.5 MPG in the motorhome.

nice rig . If we would have been fortunate enough to afford a motor home that would be the one. We were not so we got the best trailer that we could afford. E21.
Enjoy your Lazydays.

I am of the same mind. Lots of nice motorhomes out there, but I love to explore both by vehicle and on foot (or bike) and the tow vehicle makes more sense for us. Plus the truck gets lots of use else wise by me, whereas maybe not by others. I don't want to bring a toad either.

But, I love towing having done it hordes all my life, mostly for work though. To me it is second nature. Dropped my Class I license though as I have no intent of driving the big rigs again.

Ditto. I even attended a couple of Lazy Daze rallies when I was researching RVs. But I finally decided a travel trailer would work better for me.
