Great music, laying on the beach, cold cocktails, beautiful landscapes, wonderful mountains - lots of history.
I paid a fair price - probably right at wholesale, spent some time in the last year fixing stuff but gotta say feature for feature our "entry level" gasser is perfect for us. Not sure what it will be worth when the kids settle our estate but I know we're enjoying the hell out of this.
Good for you bigben. Your comments are inspirational to a newbie. Enjoy life. I tell people who ask me about buying an RV as far as if it makes sense financially... Here's the deal.... We can sit in our easy chair, watch the biased news, watch travel shows or you can take the opportunities that God gave you to get out, see the world and talk to people you wouldn't normally see sitting in your easy chair. I've made up my mind which way to go. Financially? A rental car and motels are cheaper, but, I get to bring my little dogs without worrying about it.... Enjoy.
