Hi,

My wife and I have just purchased our 1st motor home. My wife saw a 88 PA for sale last night and I ran out and bought it!

My dad bought his motor home back in 1975. We went skiing in Montana and summer trips to the lake. In his later years he traded in the old Express for a 1988 Pace Arrow Southwind. Sadly he passed away on his last trip in his RV more than 20 years ago.

We are moving in a month and we need to stay somewhere for a month as the other home is not available yet. We hope to go away RV'ing for a month to pass the time and enjoy no mortgage payments.

I have Parkinson's so I hope to successfully make this trip this year while I still have the mobility.

WE have a 2001 Holiday Rambler Endeavor and have just started about 4 years ago to head to the States but as we are not retired yet (I like to call us "Practising Snowbirds")we usually go down in the early spring when everyone is coming home.

Welcome Gus, best of luck on your endeavors. Should I be so lucky as to go as your dad did.

Agreed...

We had to sell our house 5 years ago. I wanted to buy a motorhome just like yours (Tiffin P) and drive the US for a year. I was not able to convince my wife at the time so instead I used the money for a failed business venture.

Now that I have something to drive I can prove to Denise we can do this RV travelling. I'm fighting Parkinson's now.
