Welcome to the group! We are doing the same and have our tentative launch date at 1/1/14.
Like you we lurked here for 6-8 months while searching for our Class A. We knew we were Motorhome bound (will tow a car or boat but thats it for us) so you have one big decision we didn't.
Bought the Bounder in August and been throwing stuff overboard ever since - charity - friends any one that needs it. Had our first garage sale last Saturday. Another 1 or 2 to go. Those things are hard work! We were practically a Dollar store in our pricing. Even bundeled things in plastic boxes - take it all $5. Only made $300 - lots of what didn't sell went to charity - some nicer items were left priced and put in storage tubs.
We thought we had plenty of time allocated to early retire at end of next year but working full time and trying to find time to enjoy the rv life now - it's a big push. Good luck with the hunt.
Wishing you many happy times on the road.
Steve and Annie
