New to the group

Hello and thank you for letting me join this group. My wife and I grew up camping with our parents in TT's and she and I had a popup that we sold a few years ago. Now we are nearing retirement and are trying to learn all we can in anticipation of purchasing a used class A this fall.

I'm sure I will be lurking these pages and capturing as much information as possible so a really big thank you to those that will be helping educate me!

whoa! you may want to rethink that retirement. It's not all that peaches & cream. I'm retired...I some times sleep a little later,miss getting up early getting ready for work, and then there is the traffic. you're gonna miss the stop and go traffic. Heck I sometimes forget to wear a watch. Oh and those routine odd jobs around the house? You're gonna want to put them off for a day. And the rv? you'll take trips and forget about the house. yeah it's tough and we do it, but are we happy? .. seriously welcome to the forum and we're at your service if questions arise.

I'm new, but not really. Joined last year and kinda spied on the "Palazzo" owners forum, learning all I could about those coaches. Finding out their problems and how the repair / warranty work was handled, how the Cummins engines / Chassis were working out, etc. I really want one, but haven't been able to work out the numbers yet. I did learn one important thing. Research, research, research!!!! Buy your third motor home first.... This forum is the best learning tool I've found on the internet. Thanks everyone for posting comments.

Ok that made me laugh! 18 more work days and I will have to suffer through all those things!


Seriously, thank you all for making me feel so welcome...

Welcome

Retirement - I start each day with "lots of nothing" to do. I do "nothing" all day long and quit for happy hour getting "nothing" done. So tomorrow I will have more "lots of nothing" to do.
