I'm so glad i've found this site!! What a wealth of information!
After looking about a bit on this site i have a couple of questions to start:
My hubby and i are from Australia and are keen on doing a roadtrip from West-East spanning 2-3 months over summer (possibly 2008) - i would put us in the basket of Quest/Jaunt traveller! Yes, it's a while away, but i'm big on planning, planning, planning!
My main ambition in life has been to visit Tennessee (don't ask!) and especially the Smokey Mts. The roadtrip has grown considerably from there!
We think the best thing for us to do (financially) would be to buy a secondhand RV for the duration and sell it at the end. It seems hiring a car/plus accommodation is just as expensive and more restrictive for us.
My first question is, 'does anyone have a break-down of what Class RV stands for'? In other words, whats the difference between say, Class A and Class C RV?
Also, we really like the idea of a small camper (preferably with bed over-head) and hopefully shower/toilet unit. Other than that, we are not fussy! Planning on spending as much time out-n-about and not in the vehicle (unless driving!). Any recommendations on vehicles/make, etc would be most appreciated!
Well, that's just for starters! Thanks in advance . . .
