New to us 2008 HR Navigator

So much to learn about but having a great time with it. This is our first RV so we are a bit nervous, as expected. We love the large kitchen counter top and extension. We are planning to start fulltiming May of 2014.

This is a Holiday Rambler Navigator, 45 foot Caspian IV with a Cummins 600 ISX

That is one fine looking coach. We love the extra space out 45 footer gives. We were a little apprehensive at first as well, mainly because we owned the coach, and payments, 3 months while trying to sell the house. We have been "homeless" for a while, living in the coach and love it. The extra space is great. I like the full tile floor in your coach. Ours is part tile and part carpet. The puppy loves the carpet section, but it does take a little more effort to clean.

Yours also appears to be a quad slide??? That also gives a lot of extra living space. When moving from a SB home to a coach, the transition can be tough. You have to make some hard decisions on what to keep and what to get rid of, and invariable there will be a few things in the get rid of stack that you miss later.

Are you waiting until May to retire before FTing? Why wait. You have a great coach, I would be looking to make the jump now!

Anyway, congrats, it's a great looking coach.

Great looking coach. Thanks for showing her to us. I think I have just started seeing you posting on the Monaco forum on Yahoo.

Thanks everyone,

Yes, I have been posting on the Yahoo Monaco forum as well. Lots of Monaco and sister ship owners there.

Medico, we would love to take off right now however my wife and I have work commitments until the spring. The funny thing is being so close to departure makes it easy to stay here and talk, plan and dream about the near future. One of our major goals when full timing is not to rush for anything. We have been rushing for to many years and want to and need to slow down.

We did take the advice from many folks on a few forums, "buy your last coach first", and we did that. Hopefully it will work out in the long run :-)
