I will try to keep this short: We are spending the next two years (before hubby's early retirement) checking out A Class Motorhomes. We aim to go full timing, rent our house out & have our touring caravan seasonally sited in Croatia, which will be our base. After discussion with German friends on our site, the tolls on most European motorways are so much higher if you have heavier than 3.5 ton, yet you can tow a large box trailer behind carrying your stuff, which isn't counted. So, for long term liveability & moving, do we buy a smaller motorhome, small enough (thinking 7m) to use for shopping & trips out & tow a trailer. Or go for a bigger one, say up to, but below 8m, with bigger payload & boot & then tow our Vw Up.
