New to IRV2 & MH........

Hi all, my wife & I are both retired Canadian military, & have just purchased a new-to-us 2008 Four Winds Hurricane Class A. We're on a steep learning curve, but between the forums, internet posts, youtube & hopefully a little intelligent analysis, we shouldn't blow up anything, LOL!
Our youngest is starting his senior year in September & has already started planning to join the military immediately afterwards. We're both professional musicians, in addition to our technical backgrounds, so we have something to keep ourselves busy much of the time. The plan is to not let snow touch the Hurricane commencing next year, as full retirement is about 12-14 months away.
Then, sell the house & we're gone!
Drop us a line if you have any thoughts, specific advice, or you'd like to chat when we slow down enough to check our mail!
Take care!

Welcome! You've come to the right place! Don't be afraid to ask questions and be sure to use the "search" feature. You'll be amazed at what you can find! See you in a campground somewhere down the road, eh!

Welcome, glad to meet you!

My advice is to settle far south of where you presently are! I have not shoveled snow in 2 years.
