We are still here and daydreaming!

We are still here, working hard and striving to reach our goals for fulltiming. Our lives have become a daily routine of rising at "0'dark thirty", heading to work and getting home with time left for dinner and a made for tv movie!

We do manage to sneak in some fun once in a great while. This week we are both on vacation and enjoying the company of our sister from South Carolina. It is so great to be able to spend time with her, she is a lot of fun. She is hoping to return mid September to help Cheryl and I shop for an RV at the Dallas RV show. She has a vested interest in what we buy, since she plans on traveling with us a whole lot!

We are looking at Tiffin motorhomes, since I saw Joe and Sherri's a while back. It seems I hear a lot of good things about the Tiffins. I am wanting a rear engine diesel (RED), but we will have to see how the ole savings account is faring at the time. We hope  to buy no later than November, but may have to wait until January or February to increase the savings.

Anyway I wanted to finally  post to let everyone know we are still here and still daydreaming about the RV lifestyle. I will close with some pictures of our "stay-cation" with our sister here in Shreveport.

Shopping is fun and frustrating. There things in one manufacturer that are not in another. It seemed to me that there were so very many more to choose from when were just "shopping" Now that we are actually ready to buy, there have been only a few in the "region" to consider.

We too would like to buy before the end of the year, but if we don't find the right one, we can wait until next Spring.

I am no longer counting on going full time, but the rig we buy will be suitable for it. At least until we can graduate into a full 40'

Post about your shopping and other thoughts on the process. You will find the community of bloggers very helpful and encouraging.

We're currently just a bit north of you in Ashdown, AR (just a bit past Texarkana.) Also searching for the perfect diesel pusher. So far we've found the one... Now just need to find the cash! lol

Glad to see you post... Tiffin is a great brand of motorhome... we have a Itasca which is also good BUT the main thing is take your time find something you really love and has a good repatition and also a great manufacturer that will stand behind their product. Both of those do. We chose something we thought we could be in a long time since we would rather spend our money on fun then buying coaches. We bought ours new and it is now 6 years old. We hope to use it many more years. Have fun & Tracel safe
