Dadgummit!! It's happening!

The upgrade fever has hit.
Just got our nice little set up less than 2 months ago. 2007 Tahoe with nice 5.3 engine/ Brand spanking new Shamrock hybrid 21dk.
Annnnnnnnnnnd NOW I am thinking of upgrading! OMG I didnt believe all of you . But it is happening.
I love our set up but am thinking of how nice a ecoboost could pull that baby through the mountains.. Or for that matter maybe I should just skip right up to the 30 class c with a toad,, or for that matter maybe I should just go sell my house and by a 40 ft Class A!!
Thank goodness that is where it has to stop. They don't make anything bigger do they? I hope not!

Same thing happened to us. It will gnaw away at you until you can't take the strain any longer and just do it.

Let's do an analysis.
What do you want to do with the RV?
How long will your trips be?
How many on your trips?
Pets?
Still working or retired?

They don't make anything bigger? That's funny!
This is a new trailer that is being made for JC. ~$240,000
It hasn't been painted yet.

I know the feeling. I bought my first camper 1 year ago on Memorial Day weekend. Just shy of the 1 year anniversary, I bought a bigger one. Now my tow vehicle is near its limits and I am dreaming of an F-250 supercrew diesel. But it will remain a dream for now.
