Hi from Louisiana

Hi All,
Both the hubs and I have been lurking for a few weeks now and finally took the time to join. We've been RVing since 2010. We started with a 28 foot fifth wheel, but weren't quite happy with it. Next RV was a Class C, and when we were taking delivery of it we met some really nice full timers who told us all about the lifestyle. Couldn't help but think "why not us", and a year later the hubs was retired and we had the house sold. We've been in the RV for one year this month. But after six months of living in the Class C, and knowing this was going to be our lifestyle for the foreseeable future, we moved up to our Class A, hoping that "third times a charm" idiom is true!! We tow an enclosed trailer carrying three motorcycles. Our travel plans revolve around areas offering great motorcycle riding. Home base is some property that we still own in Louisiana, and is now set up for the RV...kinda like having our own little one site campground in the woods. Glad to be a member here, contributing instead of just lurking.

Gadget63, I NEVER come across people with Australian Terriers! We had two. Our little male Aussie we had to put down in June because he had oral melanoma. He was a little over 14 yo. But our little red female, Tori, travels with us. She turned 14 last December. Absolute best pups ever!!!

Welcome and enjoy your Bounder. We went from a small Class C to an A as well - no comparison - much more room. Love the little Kangaroo on a Bounder!
