Bitten by the bug!!

Well, my wife and I bought her a 2005 Coachmen Spirit of America 249QB. That was in February. Great unit, pulled wonderfully with my 2001 SuperCrew. As a young family we always camped a lot, mostly with tents. Well the kids were grown and gone, so Hon and I wanted to see if we still enjoyed it; hence the Coachmen. Well now it's towards the end of June and guess what?

Long story short, Monday we will be picking up a one-owner 1993 Bounder MJ34 with a Chevy engine that is in very, very good condition and all we are talking about is selling out and going full-time, know the feeling?

I'm sure that I will be calling on some of you for help and advice in the near future. I appreciate the opportunity to "share the passion" and enjoy the fellowship. I'm 66 years young and my wife is a "mature" lady. Do you think that there is any hope for us.

Just 'cause there's snow on the roof, doesn't mean there isn't fire in the furnace! Sixties are the new forties......so I'm told! Enjoy and keep the passion for what you love. You've earned it

Congrats!!! Since you said it has a Chevy engine I am assuming it is on a Workhorse Chassis.

1. Check with the previous owner to find out if the recall on the brakes has been performed.

2. Also if it has the Dometic refrigerator check if it was the model recalled and if it has been performed.

Good Luck,

Us too, have the MH bought, ordered as we wanted. Then my step daughter died and we "inherited" her two children, one is 19 and can't find a job, the other is 11 so we have years of school ahead of us yet.
I actually retired in 1998 but went back to work till my wife could retire. She had just put in for retirement a month before her daughters death which was in Aug 2008. Luckily the new company that bought her old one out hired her at her old pay rate and position. Now we don't know when we'll get to full timing and I'll be 65 in January and my wife 64 in December.
