Good morning... my wife and I took a jump into the deep end of the pool this week and picked up a 2003 Monaco Windsor 40DST.... we've owned a couple Class C rigs in the past, rented several through Outdoorsy over the last couple of years and decided it was time to get our own.

We found what we believe is a great rig..... 1.5 bathroom floorplan, triple slides, new A/C, new residential Refrigerator and came with a TOAD.... took for a shakedown run this weekend and so far it is everything the owner told us... some challenges here and there, some small upgrades we want to make to entertainment system in particular.... and making a long list of "gotta haves" to put in the basement for future trips.

Any ideas for "stuff we need" please share your wisdom!!

We are not retired... at least 10 years away from that mark, but we are empty nesters and want to "Go, See, Do" more... but I still need to fit in time for cars, motorcycles, golf....oh yeah and work too.... :-)

Get one of those big rubbermaid tubs and put it in one of the basement bays. Oh, yeah, don't forget to stuff it with cash!

Welcome from Indiana!
