We am planning on retiring soon and the kids are getting older and don't go out with us as much anymore. We have a 32' Coachman Freelander Class C. It has been a great motorhome for us. We only go from San Diego to the desert and beach. But we are hopefully planning on doing some longer trips as we have more time coming up. The Class C is paid for and has no issues. The Class C was great for with all the kids. I think if we are going to drive further and tow a truck behind us, we might need a bigger rig. Not necessarily longer (I need to double check our RV parking spot) but bigger. Bigger tires, holding tanks, motor, brakes, refrigerator, etc. I know everything starts with "what's your budget". We are just starting to talk about it so I would guess around 100k. I have never driven anything with air brakes but I can't imagine it is hard to learn. We would be towing a full size truck (raptor) or the new Bronco :). Maybe even towing a Speed SxS in 2025.
Right now my boxes to check are:
Gas Vs Diesel - I think I want a diesel because that's what the pro RV'er have but I'm not opposed to a gasser.
I think we are limited to 32'-36' due to storage. I need to confirm
I would like basement storage and outside TV. We are not TV people now but I think if we were out for months at a time it would be cool to watch a sports event outside.
Towing 5-7k or more???
Room for a couple kids if they decide to go.
Any tips, advise or good makes/models to look at?
