Hello from AZ

Hello all,

We bought our first Class A back in May and have been trying to spend as much time in it as possible. It's a '15 Thor ACE 30.1 that we bought used from a couple in Austin, and took 2-1/2 days to bring it back to AZ, taking time to get to know it.

We (I) nicknamed it the Longboat. It's certainly not the longest out there by a longshot but it's longer than the TT we owned 12 years ago. The name also ties back to my last USAF flying squadron which are known as the Vikings.

I'd scoped out this model for the better part of 5 years and always loved the layout. I saw one up in Flagstaff last Spring which got me onto RV Trader at a price I couldn't pass up, and the rest is history.

My wife and I are in our late 40s-early 50s but not quite ready to retire fulltime. We try to get in the rig 1-2 times a month (it averages about 1.2x a month). Our kids are nearly out of the house and soon it will be just the two of us. We hope to meet other part-time RVers in our area that we can get to know through this great experience.

Anywho, I've rambled on enough. I've been lurking in the forums for some time but decided it was time to join up and contribute where I can.

Valhalla,

Chris
