DH - driver is 77, Me navigator, 71. Navigator except when the road is too narrow and steep. Then I'm the prayer partner.

First motorhome (34' Holiday Rambler Amassador with toad) other than three weeks, a few years ago, with a class B that was too small for him. Getting ready for our second voyage. Either we are crazy or this will keep us young.

73 driving a 2007 four winds hurricane
Like a lot of others here I have become a solo rv'er. Lost my wife 4 months ago and learning how to do it alone. Its a challenge but life has to go on.
Sold my 84 winnie when she got sick and after she left this earth, I got a 07 hurricane.
I am not going to sit here and vegitate. See you somewhere out there.
Yes I miss her terribly but I can't change that.

I can't imagine the loss you are feeling and I wanted you to know that you touched the hearts of both me and my wife. We are glad to hear you are still taking to the road and trying to be strong and most important we hope you will find some peace from your grief while you are out experiencing what life has to offer.

My wife and I were also touched by your post. We want to offer our sympathy on the loss of your wife. I admire your tenacity in regard too staying on the road. My DW and I were talking on this subject Sunday on the way home from church. I don't think I could go on alone in our motor home with out her.

My deepest sympathies for the loss of your wife. I will be 44 years old next month and my wife and I have been married 24 years this coming June. We have been RVing for 20 of those 24 years and hopefully many, many more. I can't imagine life without her let alone RVing/traveling. I admire your spirit and desire to still do what you love.

Mike.

Being 71, wife the same, I enjoy reading some of these notes, some funny, some sad. For me, I have decided to not save anything for the wifes next Buffalo, hope to wear out the coach, a Foretravel 320, 36' 1 slide, ISM500 and all the normal Foretravel features, Aqua Hot, computer leveling, Allison 6 spd 4000 with Retarder.
Dont worry about the wife, she will be very comfy unless he gets tangled up with a loser that spends her money.
Enjoy each day to its fullest.
Dave

We are both 60 both disabled. Been camping together since 73 in you name it, done it! 90 HR 33' Monitor. I also want to express my sorrow to those that have lost a partner, but admire those that keep on going down the road. It kinda brings home a fact to me that I too will lose my DW(Cancer)sometime soon. In the meantime hope to be out bustin more bugs while we can. After her time comes I will continue as long as I can and plan to fultime solo with my dog.

53 years old..... Actually owned 3 MH in 4 months! Started out with a 95 Class C {wasn't satisfied at all} Sold and bought a 2003 CLASS C and used it 3 times. Sold it privately and purchased a 2003 Windsport 32R. Luckily we made a profit on each sale! The good news is we love our Class A...

We pull trailer...usually carrying a 1970 Corvette 454 Big Block
