Best be sure he has caught up on and finished the home projects first. Before we bought our Twade Wind a year and a half ago I began a bath remodel, promised to finish the new deck, paint the exterior of the house, make new pots and pans drawer in the kitchen.........All those projects and more are frozen in time. The time we bought the AS..... and I have retired since then too!

Welcome. You have found the right place. A lot of that bug can be found here. Also a great amount of technical knowledge and experience resides here. Use the Search tool, then read and read and read. Again, Welcome

Welcome. Be sure to consult the classifieds here. Itís where I located my 83 34í Excella trailer last December. Just keep checking and donít leap at the first thing you see. Take it easy; after all, you are sick! However, there are worse places than Ohio to have the ailment.

We've had two bugs and just ordered our third. There is no stopping - it is an addiction. The first step is to admit you have a problem. Welcome to the Forums!

Make sure your husband takes his time in choosing a coach.

After all, it is a lifetime commitment, you know, like when you get married.

Make the wrong move and it can get expensive, just like a divorce.

There are many people on this site that can offer a lot of good advice.

But the best advice, again, make sure he is careful and takes his time.

Most e-bay offers have hidden faults that get real expensive, very quickly.

Hi Georgia, Georgia! Georgiah!! Love that song!

I bought an Airstream because my Lover and wife calls me McDreamy!

My sister still insists on calling me White Trash!

Anyway, the bug is international and I'm not talking Canada!

Good luck with your search!

Marc

Correct! The large doses of aluminum only temporarily mask the symptoms.
