Why the very idea is enough to give one a permanet facial tick.

The notion that your beloved admin of this fine site has no RV of his own.:eek:

So this morning about 10:00 am Eastern Time we placed an order with deposit for a Rockwood 8280SS 5th wheel with RVWholesalers. The sales guy said the order will go to the factory this afternoon and the wait time for "out the factory door" is 55 - 60 calendar days. Should have it in time do get in a little camping before Sweet Wife returns to her teaching duties.

Now I gotta get a hitch!!

When you pruchase from RVW they want you to stay at Indian Lake State Park (really nice, google it) for a day or two. Then stop back by RVW with your pick list and they'll take care of it.

After we leave there, I have not planned where we will stop next, but I was thinking "Land Between the Lakes" on the KY TN border. Maybe we could set something up?

If I had bought that trailer out in Tulsa I'd have driven right by your house! Do a mapquest between Atlanta and Tulsa.

Welcome back.
I got out of RVing a few times.
Some things like RVing and ham radio are hard to give up.
Does that new 5th wheel come with a telescoping tower? HI HI:radio:

Going whole hog, excellent.

Definately worth a day or two shakedown if you are going to the effort to do a factory pickup.

Yeah I got as much 5'ver as the f-150 will pull. But if I were going to do the Alaska thing, I'd have to get a bigger truck or a smaller trailer. We'll probably never go more than 12 hours driving time away from the house.

But man, I'm really chompin' at the bit! :jitter:

Indian Lake State Park is really nice. I'm looking forward to having a nice quiet place to unpack, move in and do a little shake down.

If the pic of the trailer in another post is the same one as you bought, thats a nice looking rig.
Happy camping.

I am retired, and my wife also teaches. When we traded our last MH for the 07 damon, it was at the end of the horse showing season so nothing was missed.

Yes, that was an old post but kinda nice to go back and reminise. I have to add that when I first joined the forum (6/4/08), I didn't realize "Radio" did not have an RV. I thought he was trading RV's or had one in the past. I later saw where he had been a member of RV.net for several years planning and scouting out all the RV's and info before making a decision. This guy does nothing on the spur of the moment. His moves are investigated, planned and deliberate. Right ?

I'll spring for dinner out on the spur of the moment. I don't drop $22,500 on a whim, if that's what you mean! :2cents::money::2cents:
