Hi Tacking,
Been there done that and the good thing I can say was it was 33yrs.ago.I have been re married for 32yrs.When I first was divorced the ex maxed out 3 credit cards and tried to take the house but,the judge seen she couldn't pay for it so like you we had to sell the house and she did get money but,she had to pay half of the credit card debt.I wish you the best of luck and many safe travels.We like pictures of the Rv's so if you will post some pics.

Tacking, you can't get away with "I bought new coach today" without some details. PS, the last time I was tacking, itst was upwind in my old sloop.

I won't take possession of it until I close on my house in under a couple of weeks.
Funny, but the ex taking what she is out of the sale did me one favor. It kicked me in the but on not drifting into a more expensive coach, as I was slowly doing. My choice became much simpler. In fact that next day I was too go look at the ONE that I truly felt I would buy, .. a 39' DP Airstream. Canceled that appointment all together.
After searching through every site I could find, eBay, Craigslist, and the many other sites that specialize in coach sales, I ended up finding 'my deal' just down the road in the next town. Literally 5 min from my house.
So, ... a long winded answer for what I ended up with... LOL. It's a 2003 Damon Intruder 38'. Workhorse chassis. Near perfect condition, three slides, quite roomy. The master bedroom is very large. Only 14K miles, low gen hours. Really loaded with all the bells and whistles available in 2003. A bit of a 'Time Capsule" in interior decor, but not so much that I can't deal with it.
I studied all I could find on this coach and know all the issues, which in reality are not so many. The windshield is the biggest fear, but ... the price was right . Best bang for the buck of all I have seen.

Not actual one, but identical in every way. The last photo is the only one I have of the actual one I bought.

BTDT, can assure you a good woman is what saved me from an extremely bad gal 32 yrs ago. Been a great life ever since, great RV, no debt, no mortgage and grand self made retirement fund, being 73 We need to start enjoying it, however the business is strong, hard to close down a strong business. One day hit will happen.

Two Kids are grown and on there own. My divorce was over 10 years ago. This summer my Jack Russel of 17 years passed away. Daughter married and moved to TN years ago and I am now a 58 year old granpa of the two cutest kids in the world. . So everything has fallen in place to take this solo adventure.

Nice looking coach, hope everything works out for you. Take it slow and easy, learn as much as you can, and keep up with the maintenance.

TN is a great place to visit and the new motorhome should enjoy it. Winters are relatively mild and fall colors are at their peak.

Good Luck on your new adventure!!!

that is a beautiful coach. I went thru a divorce 20 years ago and she got 60% of the house sale, 1/2 of my pensions and the car that was paid off. But, I was finally rid of the misery and that was a blessing. Misery ended up killing her 5 years ago. So, just look forward and live for today! Don't let it get to you, then she wins!
