New to the site but not to RVing

Just dropped in to say hi. Live out in the desert of So. Cal. around Palm Springs.
Started with a tent trailer back in 1985. Sense then have had three TT, four 5th wheels and now a 5th wheel Toyhauler.

Thanks for the welcome.
One of the main reasons I joined is I'm thinking about moving up to a MH. Nothing new as they are way out of my price range.
Looking in the $60-80k range. Have seen quite a few Monaco's, HR, Newmars & Tiffins. Those would be the brands I would pick from.
Need to sell the RV's I have and talk my wife into it first though.

I found that the front & rear A/C's are 2011, middle is still a OEM. TV was changed in 2008 to a Samsung flat screen, AquaHot is a model 1040 so I think those came out in 2011 or 12. Inverter was changed out to a Xantrex 3000w.
So I'm a camper. Now if I can just figure out all of the light switches.
