Well I dunno what to say. I have a 33 foot that I have pulled a 30 foot trailer that weighed 11,700 loaded. It is a Chevy chassis with a 454 gas motor. I just had to beef it up a little but not much, I did it with scraps from around the shop. It pulls my 28 with 3000 pound Nova, golf cart, scooter, big tool box, generator and all at 75 with one hand on the wheel smooth as silk.

I say the bigger the better but for a gas unit I wouldnt recommend over 32 or 33 feet. If diesel go nuts...lol... To me that looked like a fair price for a unit in that good of shape.



I couldnt imagine going to the track with one shorter than mine and especially not with a truck after having the MH...

Here is a picture of my old unit aka "The Toaster" because the dash a/c stopped working one weekend and the wife said we were a little toasty.....and well it is kinda shaped like a toaster,lol!

We even have a little fun with it once in a while at our local airport track!!!!!

Made the deal on a 99 Forest River Sunseeker, got it from a buddy on drr.com Class C 24ft, V10 with 20,000 miles, air bags, steering stablizers and very little over hang from rear tires back. Very clean unit and he used it to tow a 28ft with a door car and had no issues.

Hope to get it by end of weekend.

BRACE THE HITCH!!!

On the way home we came across 224 into Ohio. At 224 and RT 1 coming out of Indiana there was a crest in the road that was not visible as it blended in with the road. Gump had the Bounder and trailer airborne!! If the hitch was not braced, it would have been real ugly.

Here is a few pictures of the Motorhome I ended up with, 1999 Forest River by Sunseeker, 25ft length, 21,000 Miles with a V10, Lots of power, little over hang from rear tires back, unlike most motorhomes I've seen this has a frame just like a truck. Very well taking care of unit. Purchased from a fellow racer that I trusted got what I felt was a good deal.

The ONLY issue I have with a smaller Class C (as mine is) Is that the older ya get, the more difficult it is getting up that liddle ol ladder to that bed that has limited head room !
My new crew chief has a real bad knee so it's a real challenge for her to climb that ladder.
The bigger Class C's have a master bed room in the rear.
