    Default pros & cons of big RV for year-rounder

    Hey gang, I'm lookin into year-rounding, maybe some boondocking, for a year or so and have fallen in love with a 34' vintage RV. In terms of a reality check (!) I'd like to hear some feedback from you great folks about the pros and cons of such a rig. Its a 1965 model but I am mostly wondering about the length and what blessings and limitations it may bring.

    Any comments about experience with year-rounding and boondocking welcome as well

    Thank you!

    Default 34' is on the small size for Big RVs


    Interesting timing for your query. <a href = "">Alice Zytez<a/> who is one of the RTA RV experts is preparing a report on this topic. Her comphrensive view about the pros/cons of different size RVs will be published on the 7th of November in the <a href = "">On the Road with Alice & Jaimie department<a/>

    Is this, by any chance, a 34-foot Revcon? In any case, any RV built in 1965 has been probably re-built at least once. Do you know the history of the vehicle? How handy are you with maintaining complex (older) RV systems?

    When folks refer to large RVs -- generally the range is 38- to 45-foot. Depending upon what it is, a 34-foot RV would be large enough to live in for an extended period of time. We lived in the 32-foot <a href = "">Phoenix One<a/> for over six years.

    Default Will you be towing another car?

    If not, then you will have to take the large motorhome everwhere you go. Some national forest, state parks and a few national parks have lenght limits and a 34 might limit where you could stay...if these kinds of places were important to you.

    You probably will get a much bigger response to this question over on forums.
