We're retiring from the RV life

We decided earlier this year that, since we hadn't used our Georgetown at all this season, it was time to give up the lifestyle. We'll miss it a bit, but it's time to move on.

We placed it with a consignment dealer who initially gave us a very generous selling price estimate, about $9K more than we expected. After 3 months, it finally sold to the only bidder. Initially we rejected his low-ball offer, but he came back a couple of weeks ago with a slightly better one and we accepted it, reluctantly. I go to sign over the title tomorrow morning and pick up the check, which is for about $12K less than the dealer's initial estimate.

Since we're no longer FR owners or RVers, I'll be retiring from this forum also. I'll probably remain on RV.net and irv2.com, as they aren't brand specific.

Giving up the RVing is tough enough but there is no reason for you to leave the forum, hang around if you wish.

sorry to hear that you did the deed, but i understand.
so sad since we finally retired to Camano Island in August and i still wish we'd bought in Anacortes. LOVE that place.

we are still going to wait on upgrading our RV until we do some International travel for awhile.
when we get too old for overseas travel, we'll upgrade and do some domestic travel.
hoping to get over to Great Britain before then.

Good Luck and please stay with the Forum, you are a valuable member.

Even though you're selling your Georgetown you'll always have the memories to cherish.

We have a good friend who have been into RVing for sometime He's a couple years older than me. His last RV was a Monaco Diplomat MH - tag axle,generator and everything else you can pack in a MH.

He finally sold it a couple of months ago - said he knew it was time to give it up.

Funny thing - his wife would never drive any of their MH's. She said if we ever saw her driving it, Max ( her husband) would be laying on the floor dead from a heart attach.

I guess each of us will know when it's time to sell their RV.
