What a neat reply. How generous of you to use your motorhome in the service of others. And how satisfying that must be for you and your family.

I think your reply on this thread about the use of your motorhome is the most unique and generous of all the fellow rv'rs that have posted.
Sometimes I think we forget just how practical and useful these vehicles can be in times of need for ourselves and others.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

I had to laugh when I read the part about having two living spaces prevented you from killing each other. I know although humorous that each of us at times need our space and it is more difficult in a motorhome.
Also what is it that makes us want another motorhome. I don't know how many times we've looked since we've had ours and actually dickered with the salesman on the price of a few. Someone has to stop me on that or the children won't have any inheritance.
By the way I love those Jeep Wrangler Sahara's. Is yours a 4 door and how is it working out as your towed? The times I've priced them they were a little to proud of them. Eventually I'll get them where they want me though. Letsgoagain
Indeed, humorous, but isn't there usually a small amount of truth in humor I do think I am fortunate that I get to share this small space with my best friend.

The Jeep is awesome. Such a difference between the 4 door and the 2 door. The 4 door rides so much better. I also like the dual top option, which allows us to kick off the hard top and enjoy the flexibility of the soft top. Also love the MyGig radio/navigation option. Been a great tow vehicle so far. Simple to tow, great to drive.

The motorhome is our mobile fishing lodge. It gives us the freedom to follow the warm weather, staying in the security and cleanliness of our own home. It is big enough to be comfortable (we really like each other alot ), yet small enough to allow us to reach the best fishing spots. We find that most RV'ers are very friendly people (thus the reason we've lived where we do for 22 years!)

We luv the fact of being able to go more places, spend more time, and meet more people. We are not on a schedule now that we full time. No home to have to worry about.

I can't agree more the people we meet, the places we stay and the sights we see along the way ate the best. Today is our day 24 of our 41 day caravan through Mexico. Today we drove from Guadalajara to San Blas (which is about 200 miles south of Mazatlan). We drove through a volcanic area covered in Jungle and arived on the coast. We are parked overlooking the Pacific great sunset nice waves. We sat outside with our new friends and enjoyed the sights and sounds. To good to describe.

If there is a better lifestyle I don't know what it is. It is so nice I even forgot about the broken Generator cover from the ruff roads.

I am loving life wish you all could be here.

You don't need a motorhome to sleep.

The national and state parks got us in the camping lifestyle. I love getting up in the morning and breathing air that is dry and pine scented. We started out in tents and worked up to my first MH this year. We like to buy new and got a small gas class A with 2 sofas so we can entertain our grandchildren and their parents. We are still exploring how and where we fit into the RV lifestyle. We love camp grounds with lots of trees, firepits, and permits at least a small dog. We tried out an RV park in Fort Myers Beach last week and it was our first experience with a place with small spaces and a majority of perminent residents who all know each other and keep to themselves. At the supershow in Tampa we drove by a few of the club sites to see if we fit in there. They all seemed to have good security so we never found out. I guess we can meet up with them at smaller events. I don't think we will be full timers but we like being in it more than we like being at home so who knows. I read a lot on this forum and others and it seemed that Diesel units had more problems because of more complex systems. I'm very happy with our unit and can only think of trading in to something with the TV in a lower position. In almost every camp ground we've been to, we meet friendly people who live interesting lives and come from interesting places we put on our list to visit. When we get to a place we've never been before we go to the grocery and look for a local brand of potato chips, local beer and a local recipee for something that smells good. I look forward to meeting the folks who write on this forum. It seems like I know some of them already.
