You should know that your odds of winning the lottery are statistically the same whether or not you buy a ticket :-)

Lotto 649

The LOTTO 649 in Canada must be watching this thread????

Tonight on the local TV was an add showing the 649 winners convoying down an Ocean Parkway with 2 Airstream Trailers in tow and a large Class A following up. I did not have time to ID the Class A.

If you have access to Canadian Television, worth watching for.
I searched Utube but it is not on there yet.

Here is one add that might give some good advice to those of us who hope to win????

I play when the jackpots get high. Wish they would change those ticket scanners to say, "Looser!" instead of, "Not A Winner".

Jay Leno's Garage is a good example of what I would do after telling my boss that it's been fun...

When I drive my 300LE up the coast of California on a gorgeous day with my wife, I feel like I won the lottery.

I'd trade my Airstream for a Gulfstream and head for Monaco.

Great thread Derek!

Well, lets assume that we are talking about a $5+M windfall...
For starters, we would buy a ranch or land somewhere close with some acreage...
The Home would be modded or built.. gotta keep my wonderful woman in the style she deserves!
Then "The Workshop" would be built. I am talking LARGE, and very well equipped.
Skilled Labor would be hired, and the current Airstream would be gutted, repaired, and upgraded where needed...

During this phase, there would be further Classic's added.
This is my list.
1/ A shorty... maybe a 324... for going places you cant get with longer rigs, and also to loan out and travel with family.
2/ A 1990's 360 Diesel pusher.
3/ The rare and ultimate 370. Gotta have one of those!
4/ A Large AS trailer... maybe that triple axle one with the toybox in the back, I think.
5/ A smaller AS trailer to tow behind for other occasions.
All of the above would have subtle mods and upgrades like Diesel drivetrains, and solar...

I bet my RV wish list would be far less than buying a new or pre-owned Prevost....
