Yup, us too. We call it 'finger painting.'
First it was a house.
Then it was a bigger truck to haul a TT.
Then it was a TT.
Then it was a diesel truck to haul a bigger TT.
Then it was a bigger TT.

Every time we 'finger paint', within weeks, we have it.

This weekend, we 'finger painted' and looked at houses to downsize so we could travel more and sooner without a mortgage.

I just got off the phone with the lender....

Told our daughters if there was anything left when we are gone it is only because our timing was off.

OP should not feel bad. Wifey had to have THIS TT, so we did. Just 4 months later she said you would be more comfortable pulling THIS 5er, so we did. Told her the 6 month old truck would not handle it and an F350 diesel was needed, so we did.

If you are upgrading to a TT or 5th wheel from those pups, you'll wonder why you didn't do it sooner.

Our MH took a decent chunk out of our retirement savings. We have not regretted in for a minute in the last 5 years.



I am hoping that the last check I ever write bounces.................

Not sure I can skate clear of this one.
There should be on-line warnings about attending RV shows, you are done. Remember your now on a fixed income.

Don't buy from Chesaco. Dealer follow-up sucks.
