Don't know whether this should be a "thread", or where to post it, but I just have to say how much I appreciate the members of this forum, especially the ones who take the time to respond not only to my posts, but all the many subjects by "newbs" or "old-timers".
I love IRV2 - I belong to about 10 different online groups, but find myself here most of the time. The forums are wonderful and have been VERY helpful in my decision process on which kind of RV would be best for me as a single woman traveling full-time.
I grew up with the mentality that a trailer was the only REAL RV - MHs were just for "rich people" - and it was only in direct response to someone's post on IRV2 - regarding the ease of arriving at a CG late and being able to just pull in and sleep without getting out in the dark for hookups - that made me really consider a MH as perhaps better and safer for my situation. Plus I was already NOT happy that the larger 5th wheels I liked required a BIG truck to pull, which I would have to drive all the time when the RV was parked. The MH resolves many issues for me, and I am truly excited as I look forward to the convenience of the MH, and having a smaller toad for casual driving.
I have been housebound in a wheelchair for over 5 years since some major surgeries, and am finally getting strong enough to be able to escape. I figure if I can spend 5 years mostly in a 10 x 10 room, then a MH will seem plenty spacious! I call it my "Freedom Trek", and is a major motivation in my exercising and rehab. I might not be hiking the foothills, but I can see a lot of scenery through that big windshield!!!
So this forum has been entertaining, enlightening, educational, motivational ... many good things. I look forward to hitting the road in about 6 months, and hope to meet some of you out there! God bless!
