Afternoon all. We are the proud owners of our first motorhome, a '79 Fleetwood Southwind. It's in terrific shape for the age and I've already made some improvements. I'm a commuting pilot and plan to use the RV as a crash pad in addition to occasional family trips.

Glad to have you here with us in the forum.

I'm not sure anything with "crash" in it is a good thing for a pilot.

Happy Trails!!!
