Hello, My wife and I are new members to this community but long time campers. In fact we started our marriage by camping on our honeymoon back in June of 1972. First hurricane caught up with us near Asheville and had to pack it in. Since then we progressed through larger tents, popup, HiLo and in May of 2017 purchased "The Bunkhouse" so we can camp with 6 grand kids. Due to medical issues didn't get to do an extensive trip until last month when we left home on October 14 and didn't return until Nov. 3. While on trip we experienced back flow into fresh water tank and dirt dabber nest in furnace fan.
Earlier while being stored during medical recovery we experienced mice intrusion into drawers that had our clothing in them (slide out side) which was very disappointing since all the years with Hi-Lo we never had the problem.
All in all we are enjoying the additional roominess, shower and additional sleeping spaces for the kids. We have a 2010 Mini Cooper convertible as our tow car we haul on trailer. really enjoying the features of class C that allows us to leave things as they are for most part between campgrounds, just disconnect lines, retract jacks and go.

I am finding the threads very informative and hope that I might be able to give input in the future.

Also find a Class C more than adequate to meet needs and easier on the pocketbook than some of the bigger options. After a long trip, we empty all foodstuffs and clothing out of the RV before putting her inside storage (cold). The unit is pretty well sealed up, so no mice yet but I realize they can sneak in through a very small opening. I just had my air filter changed and they found a dead mouse nestled inside it. Enjoy and check out some of the other forums too for good info.
