Greetings from Chicago

Hello all. We are new to this site but have been motorhoming since 2010. We just got our 2nd MH a 2011 Fleetwood Bounder Classic 36R. RV shows are dangerous!

I will be retiring this year after 27 years as a cop and we're looking forward to avoiding the Chicago winters and eventually going full time.

Sites like these have been invaluable and I have learned a great deal from other posters experiences.

It's good to be on iRV2!

Howdy fellow Bounder owner and welcome to the forum! I know you must be looking forward to retirement. Be sure to sign up for the "Fleetwood Owners Club" and "Ford Super Duty Owners", and check out the Fleetwood owners section of the forum.

Hello and welcome to IRV2. I am sure you are counting down the days for retirement. We did. We went full time right off and have not regreted it for one moment. Safe travels.

May we also say welcome to IRV2. At Greetings from Roselle Illinois. We just dewinterized for the next to the last time as retirement is creeping up fast. Have you been out this year yet? Joliet casino has a grear RV park that is open year round. Read lots and ask any question you may have. Someone here will have your answer.

You need to come out west.
I was with a friend (California native) at a yard sale where someone had a snow shovel for sale. My friend asked "What's that?"
Now is that heaven or what.
I'm from Pennsylvania and am quite familiar with a snow shovel.
