Your signature block got me to thinking...

If you take out the Onan in the front bay, will a Cornerstone support an A-10 30mm gun in the basement?

I'd love to have one again sometimes. 3600 rounds a minute to remove those guys who swoop in front of you, hit the brakes, then maybe turn right. Definitely more effective than air horns.

In this post nor in your profile can I find any mention of previously owning or driving an RV. I highly suggest you get a smaller used one now to become familiar with driving an RV, many, many,many situations arise and it's a good idea to have experience prior to jumping into a 45' New Cornerstone and living on it. these are big rigs and while comfortable and easy to drive on the highway, it's also REAL easy to get in a tight bad situation even just maneuvering around a campground or gas station.
Also by taking extended stays on an RV it'll give your wife a chance to get used to the lifestyle. Full-timing sounds very exciting, hitting the open road, seeing places, doing different things, etc. But there's some downsides to it also that you'll find after you do it for a while.
We did it for two years and had a good time but did experience some things that made me decide I didn't want to do it forever.
If I missed something and you are experienced, my apologies, just my two cents worth. If you'd like to discuss anything feel free to send me a pm and I'll give you my phone #. There are a lot of things to consider.

The only thing I owned before my 14 anthem was cabover campers other than a few scrapes here and there on the 14th it's all been great. And that was my learning experience

You are correct. I've never owned an RV before myself. Just a wannabe at this point in time.

Had some experience driving a Class A Winnebago around back in the fall of 1983 on a quick cross-country triangle trip while I relocated between military bases. So, not so much an ownership. It was an experience with some definite lessons learned. Fortunately, I didn't prang anything.

I've ridden in a Class C our family bought on a trip from Texas to Alaska back in the early 70's for my father's military re-assignment.

DW and I are going back and forth on what type of Class A we should get to get started. Neither of us are fans of cold weather, although we've both lived in northern states and Alaska (and the middle east where it's not so cold).

It's only money and I can't take it with me. My post-retirement income will be such that starting over from scratch shouldn't be a problem if full-timing isn't for us. But...sitting around an S&B in a fixed location doesn't appeal to me either. I'm willing to pay for a nice hotel on wheels and just take it with me wherever we go and pay rent on a little piece of whatever paradise we decide upon along the way. Or not because of our wonderful (not) neighbors.

I'm prepared to start slow and OJT as I go, given some initial instruction from a qualified Class A driving instructor. And the Spartan Factory course. And OJT from the good folks on the EC Forum...etc.

I appreciate your sincerity and offer for a little personal counseling, but unless something catastrophic happens between now and then, I'm pretty convinced that full-timing in one of the best handling, quietest riding coaches on the market today...period, is the way to go.

I'm thinking new, eat the depreciation on something that has a two-year warranty and is our to break-in as we see fit, is the way to go. DW asked last night as we were watching the NIRVC 2017 Cornerstone video with Anthem46's coach (by Angie) if we should consider used, so I'll let everyone know what the final solution is when we engage in the fall of 2020. Maybe when Anthem46 upgrades his 2020 CS45B to a 2021 , he'll be willing to sell directly to us for a starter coach with a year warranty left on it.

Thank you for your post and best wishes going forward.
