After the worlds longest RV test drive we bought this Class C motorhome

Shortly after wrapping up what we suspect may be the longest RV test drive of all time, we purchased this Class C RV. It is our 4th RV and our 3rd motorhome.

Before buying an RV – especially a motorhome – we recommend taking it for a decent test drive first. And renting an RV before buying is also a great way to determine if a particular type of RV, size, and floor plan will suit your needs.

It’s a 2017 Winnebago Navion 24J with a single slideout and rear corner bed. And it is built on a 2016 Mercedes Sprinter 3500 chassis.

What Class C RV did we buy?

The coach had just under 30K miles on it when we started our journey and closer to 38,000 upon our return. Our pangs of guilt over adding about 25% of the total miles may have played a part, but there are several other reasons for deciding to buy this RV.

Now that we’re part-time RVers with a home base, we don’t need an RV as big as the Class A’s we’ve had in the past when we were full-timing (we previously owned a 36-foot gas motorhome and a 40-foot diesel Class A motorhome).

Reasons for buying this Class C RV?

A smaller RV suits us just fine, BUT our Casita camper was just too small for us to be able to enjoy properly or take trips longer than a few days.

We could have bought a bigger travel trailer, but then we’d also have to get a truck, and those have been harder to come by and more expensive lately.

Plus, we still love our Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk and aren’t ready to sell that. While the Jeep towed the Casita like a champ, it couldn’t tow anything heavier.
