Hi All;

I am a 69 year old male in fit condition, lost wife to Alzheimer's 16 months ago.

Not new to Rving, started in 1967 with a truck and camer and have had at least one of everything except a diesel pusher.

Last one before purchasing the pusher was a 2006 Pleasureway Plateau TD, on a Mercedes chassis. I know I am going to miss the 20+ Miles Per Gallon.

Two weeks ago I purchased a 2006 tropical 330, with 17k miles. Coach is in excellent condition, and I have driven it twice. I am spending a lot of time reading the manuals and getting familiar with it.

I have some modifications to do, such as adding the Hawkshead TPMS system, I have from previous coach, installing the Silverleaf system I ppurchased, adding a bunch of 12 volt plugs and stuff like that.

A diesel pusher is a big jump, I did own a 31 foot class c, but is is nothing like driving the class a. Drop me a line and say howdy.

Howdy.. glad you have you aboard. Love your area. My son went to Embry Riddle and I'd do a visit on my Harley to see him at least once a year. Liked to visit the Harley shop in PV. Love the area.. Heck, that is either my 1st or 2nd choice of places to live when I leave CA...

Welcome Jerry,

We're not far from you, off of Williamson Valley Rd

We were in Prescott Valley for four years, then moved to Prescott about 30 months ago.
