speedman42.....Our story is pretty much like yours. We traveled the country by Harley until my wife's muscular dystrophy got so bad she could no longer do it. We then hauled the harley in a pickup behind the MH until she had to give the bike up all together. Now we just fultime with the MH enjoying every minute. Hope to see you down the road someday.

While my motorcycle ownership was swiftly ended by an encounter with some trees , my DW also has RA and motorhome travel works better for her. Plus we have two dogs that we take with us and having an RV makes that so much more easy to do.

Get your hands on the Motorhome Magazine Towing guide and it will let you know if the Yukon is flat towable. Or, your local GMC dealer should be able to get you that info. If you have the owner's manual, that should be covered in the manual. Many 4wd vehicles can be flat towed if they have a transfer case that can be easily put in neutral.

Many folks tow full size PU's behind motorhomes and have motorcycles or golf cars in the back of the truck. That American Dream would yank a full size PU with a cycle in the bed just fine.

Congratulations to you both! So exciting. Ours is on order and we won't get it until the spring. I feel like a little kid waiting for Christmas.

We searching for our first MH and your '98 American looks wonderful. If you have the time, could you summarize how you went about your RV search, how long it took, and any suggestions for an older newbie?

Some bodies living the american dream literally, black mountains and all. Got the brakes to handle it, have a toad that could double as a second coach. Guess a certain salesman in a certain play has nothing on the american dream you and your wife is living. Isn't this what makes the world bgreat?

I just love the lighter wood inside - it brightens everything up so much. I also think you got a really well-kept coach, it looks like new in the pictures. There is nothing about it I don't like. Congratulations!
