New to the RV world.(Long Since Empty Nesters) Bought a 2000 Itasca this Suncruiser past summer so we have a lot to learn. So far we love it and can't wait to get retired.

Welcome, this is a good place to learn, share experiences and get questions answered!

Retirement will surprise you, it takes you just as long to do nothing as it used to take you to do everything. You know for sure it's working when it's Saturday or Sunday and you have to ask what day is it.

Watts-up, welcome to iRV2. I keep hearing that retired is a great thing. Maybe I will be able to afford it someday.

We will take short trips for a while & then decide. We have elderly family members to deal with right now but maybe someday we will be more flexible. Will probably retire about March.

Retirement is way over-rated. I've been doing it for six years and still don't have time to get everything done. I've got a slow running golf cart, a shot converter I'm replacing, and two tv's that need wiring changes. And Mickey Mouse is calling for next Saturday. When we get back in January I can relax a little before the next projects begin. Actually it's a lot of fun. I just don't know how I found time to go to work years ago. Enjoy retirement and post your progress and projects often.
