Congrats folks, take your time learning the rig. Don't be afraid to ask questions. Then get about enjoying retirement.

Thanks, it's been a busy day. Just got home and popped the slides so my wife can play house and off to work. We'll find a short shakedown cruise over the weekend and start gettin comfy with it. We traded in a 26 ft class c and I was thinking it would be quite different to drive and it is a little but I like driving it over the c I think.

A beautiful rig, no 90 hour work weeks and 3 decades of open roads ahead of you to spend the days breaking out the fun. Who says life can't be sweet. You picked out a rig I'm considering if I go the pre-tested route like you did.

Thanks everyone, we are just getting her set up for the road and planning our first trip. Gonna head down to the left coast and turn right. We'll have a look at the redwoods, then visit some friends in southern Oregon then hop over to I-5 and visit more Family and friends on the way back home. This should burn a couple weeks but who's counting...

Looking good , Wishing you Safe Travels and a long and happy retirement .
I pulled the pin on the 9to5 , 6 years ago , after 3 months , I was asking myself, " How did I ever find the time to go to work "
