welcome!! we were "between boats" for several years after selling our 27' cabin cruiser shortly after the first kid was born. we opted for our first RV in December and, like you, enjoy it as much or more than our boating days. enjoy your new Fleetwood! they are excellent coaches, indeed!!

Boatnik..
Welcome to the forum!
We boated for many years especially when we lived in Michigan.. Now for the past 6 or 7 we began our RV lifestyle.. I split the difference.. We tow our 18 foot pontoon with our coach and I "Tag Along" with my brother to Lake Powell at least once a year.. He has a 70 foot houseboat on the lake.. Boy that is roughing it.. If they stop holding the parks hostage may go one more time this year!
Enjoy the lifestyle!

Hi and welcome to IRV2! It's great to have you join the crew!

Congrats on the new rig! Did you get sails with that?

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome! Next trip I will be over to Disney's Fort Wilderness for Halloween Thur and Fri night. I heard it's a good time, camped there in a tent 13 years ago. Bringing a golf cart too.

We are on the fence right now on the RV or boat. Currently have a 2014 Class A but are finding out that it is a time consuming venture to load up, drive, camp, then drive and unload again. Meaning 1 day on each end for travel. To make it worth it we need to take a minimum of 4-5 days and of course that is 3 vacation days from work. They add up quick.

We live 10 minutes from Redondo Beach, King Harbor or San Pedro is only 25 minutes. Just tossing around the idea that we might be able to do more camping on the water with a boat, being so close to the ocean. That would open up all the Channel Islands to us and Catalina for day or weekend trips.
Just doing a lot of thinking these days. Did we make the right decision? Just not sure. Confused in So. Cal.
