Retiring from the RV Life

As a member of this forum for 14 years, I'd like to say thanks to all who have helped me navigate the Airstream world. After 14 years in a 77 GMC 26' Eleganza III, then 14 years in our 94 Airstream 35' Land Yacht, health issues are having us try other forms of travel. These RV Forums are a great thing and we've been active in them for both motor homes. I hope I was able to help a few other Airstreamers along the way. I have entered a Classified Ad on this site in an attempt to find our "Roadhouse" a loving new home. Thanks again.
Paul

That's a new one on me.

Thanks,

RVers never retire. They turn their RV into a tiny home in a gated RV Community.

From a very green newcomer to a experienced RV traveler, our upmost respects and very best wishes for your decision to find other adventures. I admire your RV. I heard rumors while on a factory tour that maybe the company will return to producing the big coaches.

Glad to hear that you both had a great time traveling in two RVs over a 28 year period. You will always have your wonderful memories. I hope you continue to travel and enjoy life.

Aging takes courage and changes things. Still able to travel with a trailer, though not as far and with more naps. I hope your future travels are a new way to enjoy life.

Tell me more about the unit, it looks fantastic. Would you recommend it to a total novice in the event arena?

Many thanks
