Just retired getting ready to be a Fulltime RVer

Only been RVing for 3 years but so far it has been pretty good. Started out a little rough with 4 blow outs in 3 days. Ordering our first new fifth wheel a Stoneridge 37RB, hopefully have it by first of the year. Trying to research a GPS, down to 2, the Magellan Pro 9165 for trucks/RV and the Rand McNally Tripmaker RVND 5510. Anybody had any experience with these?
I've been forced to retire a little early only 56 so hope to travel and earn a little on the road. Wife and I are looking forward to the adventure.

I retired at 51 after 30 years with the State. Have been working since then till my wife can retire. Then her daughter died and we "inherited" two grandkids and three more cats. Now that my wife is almost ready to retire it appears that she may have liver and/or pancreatic cancer!
So travel while you can!!
I use a netbook with VMSpc and MS Streets and Trips with the GPS antenna you can get it with.

Welcome to IRV2! Enjoy your travels and meeting new friends. We have made some great friends on this forum and have camped with them. We decided not to wait until I was retirement age, husband is 63. Life is too short and who knows what tomorrow will bring. Money is a little tighter than we would like, but I have no regrets.
