Switched to a motorhome!
After ten years of pulling a 5th wheel, we made the switch! I found a nice 2002 Land Yacht 30 in Hamilton ON. A boat dealer took it in trade and they put a fair price on it. I made an offer and got it in early dec. It is now stored till mid april when I will put it back on the road. 59 000 km on it and most of maintenance is completed. The original owner never changed the oil on the generator because of the low hours (32)!!! In April I will change the oil on the tranny and the P/S.
We had some experience in motorhoming, 10 days with a Mercedes in Cuba in 2002 and a month with a Citroen diesel in France last year. The decision was easy when the Land Yacht came around. A friend of mine has owned one for 3 years and he is very happy with it. The low profile is easy on gas - I got over 11 mpg /imp.gal.. No slides but we will be ok. I wanted a reasonnable lenght because we want to go back to Mexico. Big RVs are not very practical there. I will tow a 2006 Pontiac Vibe behind, a very practical car. I am confidant this combination will keep us happy for many years.
