Just a "bit" overkill for me. We haven't moved in 22 years. A massive endeavor that I'm not really looking forward to.

I figured that out after I read your post a second time. LOL. Things are good here, but I'm not here for pleasure and it is wearing on me!

When we moved some 12 years ago, it also was a massive endeavor after living in the same house for 30 years. Fortunately we moved to a much bigger property with a nice house for the DW and huge shop for me. The bonus of course was the covered RV parking. So at 12:01 am of the day of taking possession of it, I pulled in with my 1979 Classic Airstream Motorhome and plugged right into the existing 30 amp outlet. Man, did that feel great.

While hanging out in Seattle, we looked at a few possible retirement homes. The shop on this property could fit four Airstream motorhomes at once!
So when are you going to buy the other three.......

My last move took 10 months, 24 trips with either a 24' gooseneck trailer, 18' dovetail car trailer or a 16' horse trailer along with a 48' moving van with the household goods. The move only lasted 10 months but it took years off my life.....

Move? Just leave stuff scattered all over the globe and try not to antagonize the folks looking after it for you!

Five years! And I was so good at it that I put 2 Snap On distributors out of business

Hey Brad! Well, after spending a month at my brother's house and living through a MASSIVE 3 day heat wave that Seattle has never experienced before, and having to sleep in his trailer for those three days with the A/C on, maybe it is time for a change! It was 108 degrees with humidity and I had to turn the A/C up from 68 to 74 degrees...I was too damn cold!!! The Airstream could never do that well!



I do want a 310 with that rear bedroom so that might be the second one! And then I can use the rest of the space for my cargo trailer, utility trailer and ATV's.


Only issue is I don't think I can afford to heat that oversized out building in the winter!

After 10 years of apartment living and 23 years of condo living, I am so looking forward to a good sized house on an acre of land, with a work shop and RV parking. We just have to find that dream home before getting priced out. The only saving grace is we will be able to sell the condo for more than the price of the house we want and as prices continue to rise where we want to go, the condo value keeps going up as well. It all blows my mind! The world has certainly turned upside down!

24? Wow! I was thinking one trip for the condo furnishings and two trips for MH and trailers from the ranch and dreading all that work!

I kind of feel like I'm already doing that with home and the ranch property. It's time to consolidate! Hopefully!!!

Had to move the contents of a 36' x 80' shop and a 25' x 31' garage by myself. For some reason I just couldn't do it all in one weekend

Brad forgot to mention that Tommy, his donkey is kinda slow and stubborn, especially when he had to pull the 24' gooseneck

Why else do you think it took 10 months to move?! Tommy's not exactly a race horse
