Bought a class A RV today.
#1
I did something today that I never thought I would. 
After some hard thinking, and being totally honest with myself, I had to admit to myself that my Xplorer was just to small inside to be comfortable. 

And even though I have put a lot of time and work into the Xplorer, I just needed something with more room. But I really do like the Xplorer and I enjoyed working on it. 

So after some looking, I found a nice used Class A  at an RV dealer. Its a 2003 South Wind, its 33 feet long with two slides, and besides the huge amount of space it has, it has everything that the Xplorer doesn't have. 

It will be nice to have an oven, a walk in shower, and a bed that's not in the corner, it's a full size queen bed. It even has an icemaker in the freezer, never expected that. 

I will be picking it up next Saturday (5/2/20).
Now I have to get used to driving this thing, its huge.

Cool, have you named it yet?

Since these big motohomes roll along in a trundling manner, I vote for 'Trundling Manor'...A place that trundles!

I've been calling Cammalu's rig the 'Rolling Zipcode'...

Damn, I'm good at this...

Anyone else?

Cool

You are definitely right about the corners, not to mention getting used to driving something so big.

I've never really been into the name thing, just never really gave it much thought.
