Re: Changing focus
Welcome,,,you will love this site and all the info available,,,I'm new here too but not to Rving.
I've had a Westphalia,,38 foot bounder, a 20 Sprinter and now a 17 B,,,My mistake in the past has been not clearly defining what I need. Not want .,,,what I need.
The 17 B does fit what I need . It cost me a fortune to find this out and I really should have thought more carefully about how I was going to use the unit. I now understand that often "less is more".
Questions like ,,,how far will I travel,,,costs,,,will I park on one site for a time, or travel everyday,,,shower? how much cooking indoors?, towing with what? I dont need slideouts, TVs etc etc. Seemed like a good idea at the time. Big mistake.
When we camp on Vancouver island we dont go all that far,,,we golf or fish in the day and are outside most of the time, unless it rains,,then we want to play cards indoors etc etc
Everyone is different, but my advice is write down clearly how you expect to use your unit and then go from there.
I've been to the factory and I like all the units ,,they are super.
good luck and have fun
He who laughs,,,,,,,,,,,,,lasts.
