Exclamation Montanadave comes back to RVing

I am not really new to this forum. Been on and off it before. RV'd in campers and 5th wheels for 50 years or more. Sold our last trailer after my wife had a hip replacement and struggled to get up and down the steps. Bought a park model in Bullhead City and while the campground is nice, I have been thinking hard about
buying a motor home. I have been looking at used Newmars and wondering if I can convince myself I need one as big as I am thinking I'd like: a 43 ' tag axle Mountainaire or Essex. While I am healthy now, I doubt I'll have more than 10 more years to drive one, being 78.
Never had a motorhome so maybe herding one down the road would be too much for me. Open to thoughts regarding this idea.

Welcome back. I like your plan but maybe a bit shorter on the coach. Good luck.

Thank you. Last rv was a 36' Keystone Mt. pulled with Ford f350. A boat behind it. Made for a long outfit.

Hi ! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined us!

I too would recommend something smaller, maybe 40'.

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!
