Congratulations on your new home. On wheels! Stuff will happen, that's the nature of the beast. Do your research and get an extended warranty down the road, maybe you won't need it but then you might and it will save you a bunch.
We sure miss our DP(2004 Itasca Horizon) but it was just not our reality in retirement but we did visit 38 states. Go out and enjoy it, Happy Trails!

Its like the first time you stood on the edge of the pool, thinking how hard it must be to swim. But everyone else is doing it so.... in you go with your water wings. Buy the end of the day, the water wings are off and you are smiling ear to ear.

Full time since Nov 2012 RVM#41 Gary and Marian Hill 2001 Monaco Dynasty Jack 38' 370 hp ....If it ain't broke I can still fix it.
Like putting shoes on an octopuss, so are the days of our lives....

Not only are you out the money, your not having fun.
Will there be things you learn you wish were different? You bet there will.
Will you learn those things without having a coach to learn them in? No you won't.
So smile, enjoy, laugh, love and do all the things you hope to.
We only have one shot at life, and there are no do overs.
Agree with this. Someone else mentioned "analysis paralysis". We have friends who will research and analyze something for AT LEAST 2 years. And, I'm talking just to buy drapes or furniture!!! I constantly tell them they think too hard. I believe in research, and that can be part of the fun, but I also think there can be too much research. By the time a decision is made, so much time and enjoyment has been missed. You've made your decision. Now enjoy it.

Hey! It's done, one more thing off the going full time check list. Enjoy the anticipation and experience. Time to move onto the next item on the list.

Firstly, it will be much easier to find a shop/techs trained on, familiar with and comfortable with the Cummins than the Maxforce. Second, you bought used, the lions share of depreciation was on the last guy. A smart move for your first, just in case you decide later this lifestyle isn't for you, or more likely, you love it and want to move up.

Just for the record, you can get financing once you are full time, we just did, but it will cost you anywhere from one half to a full point more. We moved up the purchase of our first "retirement home", just as you did, and for the same reason. This time we had no choice, but got it done.
