I want to again thank everyone who has responded.

Aspen isn't a reality even if the weather wasn't a factor. Property values are the highest in the country and the last RV and trailer park was gone when I was still there in the '70s.

The expense of living there is why I moved once we decided to start a family - living in Boulder (which is now almost as expensive) was maybe half the cost of Aspen. :(

Thanks - I'll do that (keep you all posted)..I'm sure I still have a lot of questons but maybe most of them need to be answered with experience.

Found out yesterday I can get out of my car lease for a LOT less than the finance company wanted (so much it could have prevented me from doing anything). Amazing how dealers get such incredibly different deals when they take in a leased car than what leasees (sp?} are expected to give up to break their leases. In my case the finance company wanted not only penalties, etc...but wanted me to come up with the total sum of the 18 months of payments they figure they'd be losing (despite the fact they'd have the car and I wouldn't)...

Seller of the RV I'm looking at is away for two weeks. He said "no problem" as far as me having an RV mechanic check out the vehicle.

I'm pretty sure the tires will need to be replaced...owner said they should be good for another two years. Mechanic said since they are about 6 years old, they would need to be replaced. I wasn't sure of the size but a bit concerned since the owner told me they'd run around $2500 - yet the mechanic's guess was more like $200 per (6 tires).

Starting to get more expensive but maybe the owner will be a little flexible on price - it's sitting on his (huge) driveway along with his new and bigger RV.

Judging from his home I'd thinik a couple of thousand dollars would mean as much to him as the loose change in my couch cushions - but you never know...maybe he's rich because he's frugal.

As the man said, every now and again you have to say 'what the ****' and just go for it. I bet you could pick up great stuff for your book too, it's a weird and wonderful world out there.
Be safe

There are campgrounds all over the USA, both public & private, that hire workcampers. You provide 20 or 30 hours of work per week, they provide campsite, electricity, water, sewer & sometimes cable TV.
