New to forum, and old as in age.

I am graduating from a 5th wheel to a Class A, 40', Diesel Pusher. If everything goes as planned I leave Tennessee for Florida on Wednesday to pick her up. I can't afford a new rig so I am getting a 2005 Country Coach Inspire 330 that from the pictures will fit us just fine. Getting rid of my 2011 F350 and my 2006 Gulfstream 35' Sedona in the process. On the way back we will stop in Georgia and pick up our 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee, our flat tow vehicle. Can't seem to be able to find either in TN. Have acquired a used Blue Ox tow bar and have ordered the appropriate base plate from Etrailer. They say it will install in 2 hours, here comes the age, it will probably take me 4 hours

My wife and I spend October in Myrtle Beach and January thru March in Florida. During the summer we take occasional where ever the wind blows us trip. I have a couple of full timer friends and I don't see us becoming a full timer.

I think this forum will become a wealth of info for me...

Hi from the hot (VERY HOT) prairies of South Dakota and a GREAT BIG WELCOME to the iRV2 gang.

Boy, never thought we'd say this, but we can't wait to get back to our winter hangout in FLORIDA,... where it's been much cooler there (Silver Springs/Ocala area) than up here in Dakota..... !!! Whew, don't think we've turned off the A/C's since we got here....well, maybe overnight a few times.

We think you'll like your new rig.....sounds nice.

Just returned from Florida with our "New" motorhome.

We bought a 2005 Holiday Rambler Endeavor instead of the Country Coach. My wife fell in love with the HR and I have to say I love it too. Need to sort out the TV situation and we are ready to Class A it..... Still have a few item that the dealer needs to repair but they can wait till we Snow Bird to Florida in January....
