Farewell as I have traded Class A pusher

It will be 7 years next week since we said saw our soon to be RV travel down the factory floor. After the getting through the first year we had a 6 good years. No real surprises.
After nearly 5 months of looking, we have traded for a 42 foot DP Class A but haven't fully moved in as my wife had some minor surgery and controls the kitchen area. We knew Class A's had less storage area but I didn't realize how much difference till realized the height of the basement area are so limiting. Of course the truck also held more than the Toad will. I will still be on the Thor Forums but a Model that was built before Thor acquired.

Thanks to all your thoughts and guidance over years.

I bought an early 2017 42 foot Entegra Anthem.to pull a car rather than used the truck as our daily driver more and more. We loved the DRV as we had so much room and storage. Today will first I put all 4 slides and let my wife start packing things away. The main storage disadvantage is the different of the Basement storage. The FW may have twice the vertical height.

Where I park and store is not a level place but the FW, I would crib the front jacks but the Entegra I would not try that. (Class A disadvantage)
In the past, long term visits, a car was a available or stored but with the Grandkids going many ways, the old method just wasn't working as well.
As age creeps up on us we think this is the easy way going between northern WI/MN, Texas, FL, TN IL MO.

Nice coach, it was one we looked at also

Definitely a learning curve and for us very positive in the end

Enjoy!
