Pulled the plug

I figured it was time to pull the plug on my 2004 Gulfstream Sun Voyager. I went to General and bought a new Holiday Rambler Vacationer. I just hope it will be as good as the Sun Voyager. One big thing that helped me make up my mind on this one is the rear bath, it has a shower that has a nice seat in it and it is easy to get into without having a big step up. Makes it easier for the wife. It will be another learning experience for us. A lot more high tech stuff. I will also like the automatic awning. Being 82 I don't do well with a lot of climbing and work, so the easier the better. It also has a domestic refrigerator which I like. The dog will like the King size bed. It has the 22.5 inch tires which I still think it best for the large motor homes. Spent yesterday unloading the SunVoyager, could not beleive how much stuff was in it. I hope we can thin that down some. We pick it up on Tuesday. A couple of thing they were going to do to make me happy. I needed Tire valve extenders on the rear wheels so I could install the Tire moniter. Also they were going to put some additional towel racks in the bathroom. We also looked at the Thor but the bathroom shower killed it.

Congrats! You're an inspiration for me. I was thinking our 2000 might be our last motor home, but I don't think it'll last until I'm 82.

When I replaced my Diplomat with my Dutch Star, I off loaded the Diplomat into my garage and couldn't believe how much stuff I had. I got rid of things I hadn't used in years.

Rather than try to make everything fit all at once, some stuff I just placed in the bays and took it on a couple of trips. I soon learned what would work and found some hidden spots for some things. Take your time loading.

It took me and the wife two days to unload the Gulfstream. I could not believe how much stuff we had in it. It must have been grossly overweight. We had the Gulfstream since 2005 and I guess as years went by we must have kept putting thing in and not taking out anything. It will be a big job loading what we need and going through everything I took out. I have always tried to have the things I needed in case of something breaking. I hope I am a little smarter when I load the Vacationer.
