My wife and I purchased a 24-toot entry-level C. It is our first MH and may be our last. We are about 60, want to travel, spend time in out of the way places, be able to park in small towns close to fairs and stores. We want to have our restroom always close, so we picked a unit that we think we can live in for extended time and small enough to go almost anywhere. We joined FMCA because of the extras the membership offers.

We just went to the Great Lakes Area Rally, had a good time and saw vary few Class C units. We just went for two days and didn't bring our unit. Now looking at this fourm, it seems that most people have Class As or high-end Bs. What is it like for us entry-level users at large rallies or joining a local chapter with most driving Class A coaches?

Welcome to the FMCA! It's true that the majority of the coaches here are class A type, but the other styles are well represented also. If you visit a local rally or a rally in some place you are visiting, I think you will find the people very friendly and helpful, no matter what type of motorhome you have.

This is truly a "family" not just a club or organization.

Welcome, and glad you enjoyed the GLASS Rally. It was great weather, good food and entertainment.
We belong to a group called The Hoosier Crusiers and in our group we have every size motorhome
out there so don't be afraid to get involved in a group or other rallys. The people will be just like you
experienced at Glass.

Welcome to FMCA! We recently attended our first FMCA International Convention in Albuquerque and there were motorhomes of every size and description. We feel that you will find FMCA members are extremely friendly and accepting of everyone. We really did not feel that we were associating with strangers but with "family".

:rolleyes: Thank you for asking the question.. I've been wondering the same thing. We are going to Forest City to attend our first rally at the Winnebago factory.. and are anxious about it. We are all paid up and awaiting the paperwork.. which we hope is at our house where we will go in 2 days. I was glad to read the answers here from other members. We too have a 30 ft Class C.

About a year and a half ago I started this post. This is just an update as to how we are doing. We have been on the road for over 2 months and are spending the next 2 weeks in Key West before we start north. Hope to make it to Michigan by the end of April. Having a great time, met new friends, and spent time in so many places that we have to keep a notebook just to remember where we have been. So far we are very happy campers.

WE HAVE HAD EVERY KIND OF MH FROM A CLASS B TO A 42 FOOT DIESEL. CURRENTLY WE HAVE DOWNSIZED TO A 25 FOOT CLASS C AND COULDN'T BE HAPPIER. JUST THE BASICS HAS ADVANTAGES. NO MATTER WHAT KIND OF COACH WE HAD IT DIDN'T SEEM TO MAKE ANY DIFFERENCE IN ATTITUDES, WE WERE JUST RVERS. HAVE NO FEAR, JUST DO YOUR THING AND YOU WILL BE ACCEPTED BY MOST EVERYONE. REMEMBER, ONE SIZE DOES NOT FIT ALL!!
SOME OF THE BIG GUYS WISH THEY WERE SMALLER.

My lst RV was a pickup used palamino1986. tiny frig. Then I bought on e-bay a 1990 Toyota Winnebago(21').

I made all the mistakes of a person who does not know what to look for and a sleazy seller. Still have some problems: leaky kitchen faucet, short in wiring some where, using d/c the system shorts out. might be a bad ground?? refrig on lp not working right.

Anyhow, I like little, can get around easily-- no desire to go bigger.

The great thing about rving is you can have fun no matter how little or big and how much it cost. Just get out and enjoy the country.

We have owned just about every configuration of RV, from truck camper to 37' class A, except a pop up or travel trailer. We full-timed for 9 years in a large, customized, high-end fifth wheel pulled by a small Freightliner RV hauler.

We now own a 23' class C which we love. We have been traveling in it for over two years and it meets most of our needs, however we find we are missing having a dingy. This is especially true when we attend our chapter rallies as we always have to beg a ride when the club goes out to dinner.

When we signed up for Gillette, I had intended to rent a car there (I don't cook at rallies, it's my 11th commandment :) ) so we could get into town for meals and whatever. We are now awaiting delivery of a Chevy Spark, manual transmission. Though hooking and unhooking a dingy is, for me, the worst part of motorhoming, it enhances the experience. The OP might consider that 5 days at a rally without a toad might not be ideal.

Been there. Done that.
Will most probably do it again.

New guy here! Wife and I bought the unit in my avi about 3 weeks ago, have replaced all the mechanical stuff under the hood that was either worn out or suspect, about ready to go take it out on it's maiden voyage before we start seriously towing to races with it. Nice clean unit - got really lucky when I found this one - 0nly 65,000 miles and well taken care of - not like some of the "junk" we looked at when we started shopping. Anyway, nice to meet y'all !! :rolleyes:
