We more or less do a lot of wandering around depending on what we feel like, but want to see what the Florence/Globe area is like and also will be around Gila Bend and the Tucson area.

Hope we can keep in touch and maybe meet somewhere along the way!

Just plain old retired, buddy!

Independently wealthy? My DA and I married strictly for love!... (there wasn't any other option!)

I am headed to the Tucson, AZ right after Christmas. Would LOVE to link up! I do the traveling and the hubby meets me every 2 weeks when he is off hitch (flying to oil rigs). My parents live just north of Tucson so will be staying there at a park just outside their retirement community for a few weeks. Send me an email when you get there and keep me posted on your whereabouts. My crusader is giving me fits right now but I will keep plugging along.

Michelle (yes I am driving this rig by myself and yes I know you wish your wife would do the same but I spent years hauling livestock trailers so I have a slight advantage) and Rotor, a wild, crazy border collie who loves to be my copilot along with Mark who joins us every two weeks

Congratulations. We love our Crusader 260rld. It was a major decision considering we had to buy a new tow truck. We will be in Gulf State Park Alabama till the end of the year. Stop by and say hello.

One Year Anniversary

We have just celebrated our first year ownership of our Crusader 270RET, which they no longer make....wish we could say this year has been a joy of ownership, cause it hasn;t....The coach spent about four months in the shop all together, that was nine trips of 45 miles each way. Our dealership worked with us and the factory to get everything either repaired or replaced.
Today, we have had two trips out of five with no problems. We plan on taking her back on the road come Dec. 29th down to Skidaway Island State Park in Savannah, Ga., that was our first trip one year ago, how well remember that outing..we droped about twenty gallons of gray water in the state park...the galley valve lever handle was missing, the valve was in the open position...
Good Luck with your new unit...

Glad to hear the positive feedback on the Crusader. We are looking at the 320RLT. Looked at it at General RV in Jacksonville yesterday. We have looked at so many that our heads are spinning. But I think this might be the one. We just purchased a F250 4x Super Duty Diesel for the leg work. Now all we need is the house. Any more feedback or comments would be helpful....John
