If we won the lottery, I'd definitely camp more. I'd probably buy a bigger new Airstream and we'd use that exclusively for a year or so while I got the Argosy painted and tricked out in a few other ways...

Then I'd take the new trailer to Jackson Center to fix the eleventy-seven things I found to be imperfect during that year, and once they were done with it we'd have a big/new trailer for going to RV park kind of sites, and a smaller/renovated trailer for vintage events, tighter campgrounds, etc.

It's doubtful that would fully satisfy me for the long term... if I won enough money to retire, I'm sure I'd need to keep enough projects to keep me out of trouble.

We love our vintage Trade Wind and classic Buick convertible TV. Maybe I might hire an event staff to secure prime camp sites and set up the leveling....sewer hookups (dumping too) electric....satalite TV......keep the polish shiny......

I would want to redo a Classic 325 Motorhome with a turbo-diesel engine, and all the things needed to make it a super liveable cross country cruiser for a travelling musician. Not asking for much here.

If.................I won the big one, I certainly would not buy an Airstream.

But, I would try to buy Airstream, that is the factory, etc.

Such an odd thing for an Airstream dealer to announce...

Let's be honest.

Hi, I would buy the new 32' stream lined Monaco Vesta motorhome. I would have built, a brand new Victorian home with everything inside modern [large rooms] on a nice 1 acre lot. I would buy the bright red Ferrari and use it as a decoration in my Victorian garage. I would help all of my family members to own a nice house and car without payments.

I would help people in need, in this country.

I would donate to help dogs.

I would donate to help people with various cancers.

My donations for help would be direct, by-passing places like the Red Cross. Don't get me wrong, the Red Cross has done some great things, but when one person, [working for the Red Cross] in one small area, pays herself over $300,000.00 per year, I want no part of that.

In my will everything would be donated.

I would pay someone to polish the 67 safari I purchased yesterday. That's right I finally made it.

Well, I'd work on the current one MUCH faster! I might hire out some of the stuff I don't wanna do - like cleaning up the mess the mice made - and maybe the welding so hubs didn't have to do it. Other than that - I'd spend on getting the stuff I like rather than constant compromising when it comes to A/S stuff. And we'd hit the road much faster! ~~~~ Don't get me started... ~~~~

I'd go a bit bigger, 25 Serenity to get the queen bed.... corner bed kind of a pain until we can replace the mattress.

then i'd probably either get the best Sequoia that Toyota makes or a new Tundra with the works to tow with.

Then early retirement and camp, camp, camp.....

I guess I would just keep on repairing my trailer until it was all gone.

I'd hire a driver to take my trailer to wherever I wanted it next. I would then drive there in my Porsche or Ferrari, depend on it was a odd or even day.
