New Home on Wheels

Well, I finally did it. I won the bidding on eBay and I'll be picking up my new (to me) 1980 24' Tioga class C motorhome on Sunday. That will give me a newer, better running motorhome that is 6' longer than the class A I have now. I didn't think I would want a class C because I didn't want to climb into bed every night. Fortunately, there is a couch that will be converted to a permanent bed in the back. The cabover bed will be storage. And the bathroom has a separate shower. Ah! No more squeegeeing (if that's a word) the floor after a shower. There is a cabinet in the bathroom, a built-in microwave, a bigger refrigerator that runs on propane or electricity. There are storage areas outside. There's a ladder to the roof which has two coats of rubber.

It's all good.


  1. I have had a dream of RVing for 30
    years but my husband never really wanted to do that and I knew better
    than to force it. Now at 63 it may be too late because I have vision
    problems developing.

    Anyway the point of my story is that
    a Class C has always been in my plan
    even when I visited the RV shows and
    looked at the glitzy A's I knew they
    weren't for me. The Tioga was my
    pick and I'm very familiar with the model you've selected. Do hope you can have many happy adventures
    in the new home.

  2. Congradulations on your new wheels. Hope it treats you as good as the old one has. what are you going to do with all the extra room? you will be rattling around well for a little while. it is amazing what you can accumulate is a short time.

  3. What kind of class "A" did you have that was only 18' long?

  4. I have a 1972 Dodge Travco Custom 2000. It's only 18 feet long but I've made the best use of the space I have.
