We have bought our Motor Home!!
On April 18th 2009 we finally bought our first Motor Home. It is a used (2006) Triple E C30G XL. It was a rental and is in excellent condition as it has been serviced and maintained by the Triple E dealership in Oshawa. They also gave us a very good trade in on our Rockwood 2502 travel trailer.
We are now in the throes of deciding what we are going to pack in the MH and what is going to be tossed. We have carried stuff around for years so the time has come to be more selective and only use those things that have been used during the last year.
We are planning on retiring in the next year to 18 months. Depending on what happens with the stock market and our investments. The hospital where I work is in the middle of a large project, so I have to commit to stay there until the project is done., which will be in about the spring or summer of 2010. After that I will be in a better position to see if we are able to hit the road.
Michael has a part time job in Bowmanville. He is scanning for a friend and gets called in when he is needed.
We are thrilled with the motor home as we feel that it will meet our needs very adequately.
Our other big news is that Suzanne and Sandy are pregnant again and the baby is due in November. Hopefully with the motor home we will be able to take some family trips and spend some quality time together. I can't wait until the grand children are old enough to come away with us.
