My mom is doing her best but lonely.......My dad would have loved our RV and it would have been my pleasure to set it up at the lake for my parents to enjoy.

I don't think we see ourselves growing older until something happens with our health. Time has a habit of slipping away while we're not looking. Enjoy today, but don't lose site of tomorrow either.

I will be 74 this July.
There is a commercial on TV where this woman is walking along and says she is only 63 and has a nice, long life ahead of her.
My first thought is: OH YEAH?? Who gave her an unbreakable warranty on life?

You just don't know when your clock will stop.
Did you ever wish you had one last chance to tell your parents how much you loved them? I did.
What is ahead of you in life is a mystery. What is behind you is history.

Now go and make some pleasant memories/history.
Buy the darn coach of your dreams.

DW and I started looking at MH's a couple of years ago since I am scheduled to retire in 2017. Fell into a good deal on a 2002 Winnebago sightseer Class A gasser, and it is the best move we've made in a while. So far we have taken a 2 week trip from our Home in Michigan to New Orleans in 2014 when DW retired. We are gone most weekend in the summer camping somewhere.

Find your self a Class C if that is what you want and enjoy the camping. Good Luck.

She's 68 and I'm 69 so time is getting short for both of us.
If you can possibly afford to get away DO IT!!
10-4 on that.

After 3 days of looking at class c and gasser class a we just keep wondering over to the diesel pushers. This is what we have always wanted and I think Im just going to get want I want. So we are upping the budget to 35K plus 5K for taxes and repairs for the now rig. We can do this without touching the full time rig fund, so Im still going to look at everything, but now that Im looking at DPs to, this is going to be even more fun.
Agree. Why buy something, fix it up to fit your needs for the moment, and then buy a DP a few years later for your retirement needs. Ya, if you had money to burn, there wouldn't be a problem. Go out and spend 200 or $300k on a new rig. But paying the high registration fee twice would be a real downer. Glad we don't have that in Ohio.
