From one who knows!

There have been some eccentric folks here in the past. I miss them, but they may have driven some more sensitive people away. Observe decorum.

I have never fit in anywhere in my life, and I am not about to start. You will see me on the "All-ER Forum" list for infractions..........

I'm a true INTJ personality, which does tend to get me cast in a negative light at times lol. Generally, though, I can keep it under control...

I just looked at the 3 photos of your Falcon. I don't know about the year, but Glenn Morrissette, a musician who lives full-time in a small RV and has a widely followed blog at "tosimplify-dot-net", had a Falcon as his first motor home. You probably know about Glenn already.

A few forum posters have sold their homes and gone RV full-timing. As much as I like to travel in one, full-timing is not for me. So, I have never been interested in class As or 5th wheels. If I happened to run across a good B when I was shopping, I could have bought that instead of the 25' C that I have now.

The Falcon is a bit tight for a couple to go full-timing though. Even Glenn had upgraded to a larger Chinook. I think you would have a better chance of talking your wife to go along in a larger vehicle, maybe something like that Lexington you have been eyeing.

We agree about the Falcon - we can handle about a month in it at a time. and I'm familiar with Glenn's story.

We talked about getting the Lexington this weekend, but decided to wait: too much going on financially at the moment. We'd have to take a loan, and even if its just for ashort time, that's going beyond my comfort zone, right now. In a few months, everything may settle down. If its meant to be, and that particular unit is still around, we'll see. Else, there are many more for sale around the area.
