ID:	44137Traded in our 1 year old TT in April for this 2012 Winnebago Journey 40U that we've named "Journey to Insanity". This will be our retirement home once the DW retires in 2016, I retired 2 years ago, 20+ years military and 20+ years driving semi, figured that was enough. Motorcycle is my TOAD for now.

Congrats folks, that was indeed a big step up. We owned a Winny in the past, they build a good coach. Enjoy.

We liked the lighter exterior colors also. Our 2012 Meridian looks very similar except for only being 35' long.
