Default new guy

I am new and am looking to get a truck based motor home. I just sold my class A and did not like the fact that the engine is under the bed and impossible to get to for even normal stuff like oil changes. I hope to get a road worthy older Supper C, one that I can afford and all that. Any how glad I found you guys since your living my dream!

Thanks for the welcome Sam and Don. I was hoping for a few adds on the for sale classifieds but seems only old posts. These types of machines must be hard to find unless new.

Welcome!

The number of truck conversions on the market is hardly a measurable fraction of the total number of motorhomes out there, but there are still quite a few nice ones if you know where to look.

I worked with two very helpful dealers: RacingRVs.com & DixieAutoBrokers.com. I think they were recommended to me on this forum. I purchased my truck from Racing RVs but both dealers worked very hard to find what I was looking for.

It is also a good idea to contact any dealers near you that sell your preferred brand and let them know what you are looking for. They could have a trade in on the way, or know of a current owner thinking about upgrading who may have what you want.

And as mentioned above, racing junk is a great place to shop as well. Good luck with your purchase!
