I just bought a 2009 Roadtrek 170 Popular, which is perfect for me, since I am single again and like to boondock along rivers and lakes at undeveloped spots. The RT gets me into spots that most RVs cannot go.
One tip I have is going to gasbuddy.com, which I was using to find the cheapest gas prices locally. Then I found their "heat map" which shows the whole US with counties that are color-coded with dark green being the lowest average prices in the county. You can zoom in or out to get more info. By going a few miles out of the way, you can fill up before going into the expensive resort areas. It is a powerful tool and will save you big bucks as you travel.
When I retire in 3 years, I plan on using the RT to travel the US and see all the things and places that I have not been to yet. I think it will be hard to find me at times as I go wandering into the back country.
