New (old) Thor Vegas 2014

I bought my used Vegas 2 months ago and am enjoying it. I am a 77-year-old recent widow and had no experience towing anything, so sold our truck and 30 ft TT to buy this. I have made about 5 trips in it so far. I write camping mysteries and the fold-out desk on the passenger side is made for me! I also have friends who like to go with me so the twin beds are great. The upholstery was in terrible shape so I need to do something about the captains' chairs and want to replace the sofa anyway with recliners. Looking forward to more "research" (for my books.)

Congratulations on a new "Great Adventure"!
You write mysteries? Excellent!!!
Can you explain why every hose and cable always seems to be about a foot too short?



(We'll talk about campfire smoke later... )

I saw someone's recommendation earlier for Ed's book, have it on my computer, and often refer to it.

It depends on your interests. If you like light mysteries, I suggest Bats and Bones. It is the first in the series, and although they are all intended to stand alone, it gives you a better feel for the characters. If you like science fiction, The Time Travel Trailer is my favorite. Although I will warn you, the history is much better than the science in it because that's what I taught.

Yes they are on Amazon. Once or twice a month I offer one of them free for ebook. This is my author page:
