Time to Upgrade - New Member

We are Bill and Diana from the Seattle area. Recently retired, we have been van campers until now, just taking very short trips in our van(s) that we partially converted ourselves. We enjoy cycling and square dancing. It is time to upgrade to something a bit larger and with more amenities. We are narrowing down our choices and will soon be buying a larger RV. We have our eyes on an FR3 25DS. I will be asking some questions about this unit very soon. We are very happy to see this excellent Forum and hope to become part of it. Thanks in advance!

Welcome from us, in Anacortes (also in Skagit County). We're on our second MH, having started out with an absolute turkey 26' Class C. It almost put us off the lifestyle altogether, but we got back into things 3 years ago with our present rig, bought in a local private sale.

At our ages (72 and 69) we're not sure how much longer we'll be doing this, but then we think about someone in the neighborhood who started their RV adventures in their early 80's with a brand new 42' DP.
