Greetings from Virginia!

Howdy all from Bill & Diane in Norfolk, VA! Only been RV'ing for about 12 years with our '91 22' Flair Class A. Great for runs to the NASCAR races but the cost of feuling the beast finally got to us. Ordered up a 2010 F350 Dually (6.4 PowerStroke) with all the fixins' for towing and now in the market for a 5th wheel Toy Hauler. Ought to do much better than the 6mpg we painfully lived with in the Flair.

Spent 23 years in my beloved US Navy, saw just a whole lot of this big blue planet we live on, but never had the chance to see my own darned country! Got a taste of it in the Class A, but being the only driver and needing to drag my equally beloved Harley along with us drove us to the Toy Hauler.

With some luck, we'll be on the road this spring in our new Fiver and perhaps meet up with some of the fine folks that gather here. Looking forward to the collective wisdom of the members!

Ciao' fer now....

Hi Bill & Diane! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined us! Good luck on the new toy hauler! We just went to a Class A after 12 years in a 5er. Not real sure we made the right move, so for now we're keeping the 5er also! Thank you for your service to our country! Good luck and God bless!

Hi, y'all. Great country and lots to see. I'll see you at the next campground!

My website describes the conversion of my Dodge B-250 van into a small RV. I deal with a lot of woodworking, but hope to be quite specific on solar as well.
