Newbie

Just checking in as a newbie.
I am fat, old, retired and looking for a TT.
I have camped most of my life but mostly on the ground. Getting too old for that.
I've tried tents, a camper, cot out in the open and a very poor experience with a 26 footer that was like towing a large boulder. Then an 18' 1986 Prowler. And that one got me kinda hooked. I liked the versatility. Boondocking(?) Or in a park. I was diagnosed with the big "C" and sold it.
I decided to not die so now I'm looking for another rig. I will look at one tomorrow that seems to fit my need(s).
I like what I here about the Alumascape line. Not many short ones though.
Thanks in advance for any and all comments and advice.
I really am not morose! All is goid.

There have been many improvements over the years in features & conveniences on RV's.
I really like the larger showers, larger fresh water tanks/holding tank sizes and on demand hot water. (ducted heat & /A/C are a BIG plus!)
The downer is that the newer RV's seem to lack the quality of build.... both in design and assembly found in the older RV's.

Happy hunting
