Moving on to another phase.....
Well, after RV'ing since 2004 and having owned a few Forest River Sunseekers (which I have been pleased with....), I'm giving up the RV.
I'm currently working in Yellowstone, been here all summer and have less than two weeks to go.
When I get home, there is a dealer near me that sells both Cars and RV's, and although they sell new cars, they prefer to sell USED Forest River RV's. So, I am going to do a trade, my RV for an SUV. I currently don't tow a car and blog about RV'ing without a tow car. (In case anyone wants to know, I'm going to AWESOME FORD AND RV in Chehalis, WA.) I have had my RV's repaired there many times even though I don't live there. Just kind of happened.....
My current RV (that I'm trading) is a Sunseeker 3180, with the computer desk option. I bought this in 2012. I loved this RV, and will shed some tears when I trade it. I have also owned the 3120 (which I think they discontinued) and a 2860 (which was my first time with Arctic Pak).
I have really had a great time RV'ing all these years.... Learned a lot about myself and that I could rely on myself.
At this point I don't know what I want, but I do know I'm done with the RV thing. Loved every minute of it, and kind of want to "quit while I'm ahead with good memories" instead of being at the down side.
For those getting Sunseekers, if you get a stabilizing system, DON'T get the HWH, those are a royal pain. If it can be installed on your RV, spend the bucks for the QUADRA! After screwing with the HWH on the 3120, having the QUADRA on the 3180 was SUCH A JOY!
Happy RVing to all of you. I have all good memories of my RV travel! My only sad memory is my cat dying while I was in Iowa in 2015.....
JJ only, my cat went to Rainbow Bridge July 2015
I love my Sunseeker, when I'm on a trip I don't wanna go home!!!"
Total days camping each year: AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE!
