Smile Greetings From IRV2's Newest Member!

I am a 66-year old, divorced, totally disabled Veteran looking to by his first diesel pusher (used, but newer). I already have the "toad" jeep and am now looking for the "toad-er". My plan is to buy a larger unit and try to travel "full-time" along with my Maltese "Bogie" who loves to take long trips in the car.

I will have many questions to ask and I'm sure that I don't even know all the questions! I look forward to learning much and hopefully contributing a little along the way. Does anyone have thoughts regarding a quality 38' - 42' make/model (incl. washer / dryer) that they would suggest?

Thanks in advance for your feedback!

Blessings,
Russ

Ummmm....I'm not supposed to talk to strangers. Stranger Danger!!!!

Oh, wait, this is irv2. Nobody is a stranger in these parts, so welcome aboard and best of luck on the "hunt". We really like pictures in these parts, so don't be selfish with them when you come across "the one".

Hi Russ! Welcome to IRV2! It's great to have you join us!

There are lots of good pushers out there. Just do your research and kick a lot of tires before you buy. Repairs can be VERY expensive if you get a lemon! We love our Monaco!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!
