That is so funny! You are right, no dirt bikes, but we do ride 4 wheelers here on the property.

I know you'll wash the tires before those 4-whlrs go into the garage! I havent looked at your profile... that's not Martinsburg, VA. is it? We're always looking for places to ride close to home.

It's in Missouri. Close to Jefferson City Mo, not too far from Lake of the Ozarks!

Sorry my post didn't work....ride north to south on the Blue Ridge Parkway. While down there, find US 129 called The Tail of the Dragon in SE Tennessee and the Cherohala Skyway. Then ride back south to north on the Blue Ridge Parkway home.. The north to south was the best!! Now that's a ride!

That does sound like a great ride. I've ridden the Virginia end of the parkway and Skyline drive. Tis beautiful especially in the fall when the leaves are turning. We have yet to put the dirtbikes in our Toyhauler as all our trips have been to the beach and lake side camping resorts. I find the Toyhauler to be practical to carry just about anything you don't want stowed in the "living room". Going to next work with my better half on acquiring a nice road bike for future trips!

Here's an older model XLR very similar to our Wildwood Sport. Not nearly as fancy as RVChick's but still practical. 2007 Forest River XLR Toy Hauler

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.
