We have our first Class A on order, and it is a 29R Sightseer. We just loved the floor plan for the two of us. But we always have visitors too.
We started with a slide in for our pick up many years ago. Then a 21' TT, presently a 27'TT. We will hate to give up the TT, but we have had it 17 years, and felt time for a change. Believe me, we looked at everything, and we always came back to the Winnebago brand.
Good Luck with your shopping!
See ya on down the road!

We have a 30 B Sightseer and have had it for two years now. We had a 27 ft class C Jayco before and like all the rest of the post would never go back to a Class C. In your post you said you had a small suv all ready. The first year the wife made me get use to driving the A first . But we got a new trailblazer and now dont leave home with out it. You can tow up to 5,000 pounds behind a Sightseer ours is 4,600 pounds and I bet yours is lighter than that . It is great to have the suv to go sightseeing in once you get to camp. We love our winnie and I am sure you will like yours.

Well guess what's parked in our driveway. Yep! Brought the '08 Sightseer 29R home last weekend and she's a beaut alright. We encountered some gusty winds on the 130 mile ride home and although it's not immune to them it's handling is much more civil than the old class C ever was. It seems that I find some new feature to admire each time that I'm in it. It'll be another couple of months before we can keep it unwinterized but Walmart had RV antifreeze for $2.00 a gallon this week so I stocked up anticipating a few early season outings.

Thanks for all of your input. Now sit back and wait for a new set of questions as we start putting it through its trials.

Congrats on your new rig. Having had a class C before the A I know you made a great decision.

Congratulations!! Many happy camping trips to you! We found out last week that our 29R will be at the dealer's lot in about 2 weeks. I'm already "unpacking" the travel trailer!
Good Luck!
