I totally agree except that Tony's post about the water levels, and the "reliability" issues they have I would delete the word "sinking" from your last statement. LOL! Water may come up faster then you can get it started.

Determine what you want and shop around. You will figure what they are worth. There's a reason these $150,000 toys loose over 2/3 of their value in just a few years. They can be an expensive unreliable PITA for someone not capable or willing of doing their own maintenance or a treasure for someone willing to take on a hobby with the rewards of cruising in a classic that you have made your own. Just like airplanes, boats, cars...
Well said! Thanks for all that you wrote!

wxbuoy and DaveFL,

You are funny! Yet there is truth in what you say, as well!

I do, however, wonder about the boating comparison/relationship giving "buoy"'s name ! Ha!

Here's to "staying afloat" in whatever craft we each find ourselves in!

Chris

Looks like we are going with a trailer...

So, after much contemplation, it looks like an Airstream trailer is going to be a better fit than a motorhome for our family at this point in time. Thank you everyone on this thread for helping me. What a great group of people you are! See you on some other threads, perhaps, as I post more questions there .

We came close one year, heavy rains and storms a distance away from cg, while on our evening walk we could hear rushing water, turned out we were parked over a contained stream, didn't put out anything or plug in like a walmart parking night, didn't have a problem, however a few months later did see that the cg was washed over and many rv's destroyed. Engineers didn't put in a big enough culvert to contain runoff from the hills.

Vycan, too funny!
DaveFL, woah! Glad your RV wasn't one of those washed away when the culvert and surroundings went!
