Howdy Y'all too.

This is another Howdy form Texas. We are Joe and Jan from Dallas, Texas, and like Russ and KK Jones the other new Texans, we are in the process of getting the house ready to sell and moving in to our trailer and hitting the road. In January I will retire that is when we plan on taking off. Three weeks ago we bought a F-350, and will buy the trailer in the next two weeks. We started tent camping years ago, then bought a pop-up which we made so many great memories in, then to a 30 ft. bumper pull which we are trading in for a little bigger 5th wheel. We feel so Blessed.

Welcome to the forum, and congratulations on your soon-to-be new lifestyle. (Congrats, too, on your impending retirement...I HIGHLY recommend it )

Any particular brand of 5th wheel that you are considering?

Retirement is SWEET! We are having so much fun already and looking forward to more once we can sell the house and buy the new rig!
