Another Old Newbie gets an RV

Hello Everyone,
We have finally gotten off of the merry go round of trying to find out how we are going to do some serious RVing. We went from Fifth Wheels to Class C's to Class A's and now back to a fifth wheel. We chose a KZ Venom 3411 Toy Hauler. We had a very difficult time finding an RV that would tic all the boxes that we both had. I am not sure what it takes to make a decision like this as it represents a life changing moment. On the road and finding time to relax and adventure, not necessarily in that order. We are avid motorcyclists and are looking forward to getting our toys out of the heat and into the cool breezes of summer and the beauty of the wilderness in this country. I look forward to learning much about you all and possibly bumping into each other on the road. we will endeavor to be good citizens and would like to take this opportunity to extend our hand in friendship as we travel and enjoy the lifestyle that these toys give us.

What do you ride? I had to give it up when my equilibrium started giving me problems. No Spyders back then and now, at 71, I'm not willing to spend that much to get back in.

Motorcycles in the back

i appreciate all of the kind words from you guys.
Mr_D, I ride a 2013 Honda F6B basically a stripped down gold wing. Old Spice has her own 2012 Harley Screamin Eagle Softail Custom. I am not quite as old as you, but I am close behind you. People that ride those Spyders think they are the best thing.
