Wife and I bought a New ACE 30.1 earlier this year and have been taking it through the shake down phase of getting all the wrinkles out of it.
Was sure this would be our one and only, but doggone if we didn't get barely into it and we are already wondering about our "next one". Arrgghh.

We started with tents, then one cold, rainy miserable night looked longingly at a nearby pop up with the residents sitting nice and dry out of the rain.

Got a pop up. Then one hot afternoon, mid way through set up, we watched a travel trailer pull in next to us and in a few minutes the guy was set up and watching TV. We continued our set up..
We got a Travel Trailer.

After seeing so many people stop at rest stops, or park without even getting out of the coach, or spending the day at the beach, or tailgating a football game....We got a Class A.

Now, if only this was a bit bigger, or we had some more room for that, or could do this....hmmm, Diesels are so nice, maybe if we sold the house...got four jobs each....

Does it ever end? Some wise person once said always buy something smaller than you can afford, you will keep it longer and enjoy it more.

So true, if only I could resist.

I appreciate the kind welcome. Next week, RV super show in Tampa. A bit like a drug addict visiting a poppy farm...
It's not quite that bad I suppose, we have all we need, and just starting to enjoy it. We'll see.
