Hello from Calvin & Cathy

Hi there.... We have been Rving for many years. Started out with Airstream in the 80's and bought 3 of them before switching to a 5th Toy Hauler. Currently have a 2008 Newmar X-Aire. Had our share of tow vehicles starting with F-350 then F-450 and ended up with a 2012 International Workstar. I built a custom 11' bed to be able to carry ATV's when not hooked up to the 5th wheel. The International is the ultimate tow vehicle since we spend alot of time in the mountains. We traded both CanAm ATV's last year on a new CanAm Commander SxS. We love the new ride... We have property in Pagosa Springs. Colorado so that is our second home when we are not here in Katy, TX (just west of Houston).

We are 3 years out from retirement and wanted more room. The 12' garage is really nice but you lose that in your living area. We plan on RVing about 8-9 months a year and spend the winter here in Katy. We started taking a SUV with us to do offroad and running around when on vacation. It is a 2014 Jeep Cherokee Diesel. It gets great mileage on the road so not that expensive for the wife to drive. The International is great but it is a big beast.

We settled on a DRV 38RSSB3 and ordered in November. Suppose to be in last of this month. We are excited since it will be the first full 5th to have..
