Life time RV'ers loving our first diesel pusher

Just finished our maiden voyage in our first diesel pusher AKA retirement home (too bad the retirement part isn't here yet) We have been in the boring business (utilities) for 25 years with only two real vacations ( longer than 3 days )! Looking forward to selling our large empty home and hitting the road full time for a year or so depending on how we like it. we are prob a year or more from that so just trying to get to know our coach and take all the mini trips we can. Tulsa to Hot Springs AR this weekend was great . The KOA there is wonderful, would def go back! Loving the DP , 2008 Revolution LE 40E ! We traded in Mountain Aire gas rig which was a nice coach but we are now certain there is no comparison to a DP and gas.

Welcome to the Forum and have to agree with you. The DP is the way to go if you are full timing. Anyway, we hope you have many great camping adventures. Best of luck with your newer beast.

Happy RV'ing
