The later model years have the separate full baths which we would prefer, but for our first RV it works for now. Looking forward to upgrade to something similar to what RVChick has now! Really is a bute but I'd be yelling at the kids every minute of the time we'd be in it! Need to wait till they aren't interested in hanging out with adults anymore.
Thanks again, Ron. I know we could buy a cheaper one just for now to get our feet wet, but honestly, I think I'd just rather do it once and for all - but it's a tempting thought. I want to be out of debt by the time I'm 50 (I'm 44 now w/ student loans, a mortgage and truck payment) rather than having to consider buying another RV at that time that was what I really wanted in the first place. Ahhhh....decisions! And planning while the Universe laughs.
Like RVChick has done, we'll be selling the house and using the profit to buy land. We can live in the RV until we've saved enough money to do something for housing, so who knows how long we'll have to live in it, and PA gets pretty cold in the winter. So, there's short and long-term planning going into this. Nothing is easy, is it?
I still need to talk to the credit union about the difference in interest rates between old, older and newer units, too. That factors into my decision, too.
