Today we ordered our first 5er, a 36RL configured exactly the way we wanted. We're both retiring later this year and looking forward to many years of happy trails. Delivery is estimated in 6 weeks. The snow ought to be melted by then. We can hardly wait! We're even looking forward to spending the first night in the dealer's parking lot, although that hardly seems fitting for an inaugural.
Of course now the pressure is on to buy a truck, since I don't think my Prius is going to handle 8 tons of trailer very well.
And a shoutout to all the RVer's out there who helped us by posting in this and other forums. Your knowledge, insight, opinions, and humor were a great resource in helping us navigate this very complex decision. Thanks!
Looking forward to meeting some of you on the road.
Dave and Karen
