Thanks, everyone! We already feel so welcomed.

We originally meant to buy the RV around the same time we sold the house, but we've had so much fun shopping that I don't think we'll be able to hold off that long, haha!

More news as it comes. In the meantime, I'm sure we'll be asking lots of questions.

ArdentCamper, You came to the right place for advice and information. We are looking to retire in 3 years and go full timing so came here upon suggestion for educating. Have learned a lot from old posts as well as new.

I saw a show on RV's and one of the things that someone did on a coach was cut a hole into the floor over one of the basement compartments and ran a ramp down to the basement. They then put a cage door on the compartment that was recessed so the original door could be closed. The reason? Litter box and when camped the outside door was opened so the cats could look outside. Having cats you know they would love this and the litter box odor is kept below and the cage door opens for cleaning it out.

Good luck most here say find the floor plan you like and then look at the rest.
I am so looking forward to full timing and maybe we'll see you out there.

Happy trails, Lynne

Welcome! I looked at your specs on the RV. You will not consistently be able to run both ACs at the same time. Managing your power constantly will get old if fulltiming. You should be able to get a 50amp coach for the same money. If you go with the 30 amp, you may be trading up soon.
