Good morning, all,

I am a solo "full-timer in training." I have my toad and a departure date (late 2007.) Now all I need is a nice used DP, 1999-2000. (DSDP, Discovery, Allegro, Tradewinds are in the running.) I plan a lot of boondocking, so need diesel gen set, 2000w inverter, room for 4 batteries, and solar, of course.

I have been researching full-timing since August 2001. Have been to many RV shows and once to LOW. I plan a second LOW conference this summer.

This looks like a good place to learn more.
Cilla

Glad to have you here. Another quality used coach to add to your list is the early 1990's model of Foretravel.

Howdy and welcome aboard iRV2.

It seems like you're well along in building your "short list" of potential coaches you're interested in looking at. Sounds like you are using the right approach of identifying the needs and requirements.

Be sure to check out the Boondocking section of the forums and brouse through some of the posts there. The search function is also very useful when researching information on specific topics.

Good luck in your fulltime adventures.
