APRIL 2006 - APRIL 2010

Well we settled into RV resort living quite easily. We have great neighbors that winter here for about 4 -5 months. During the summer its pretty open only about 20 couples left in park. Don't get a west facing lot during the summer in Florida the sun bakes our door side windows like an oven!! Had our awnings break! The large awning & one slide awning broke, but extended warranty to the rescue. Crystal lake RV came to our site and did all the repairs. Mostly quite during our stay here. Took some weekend trips to Griffin State park with some RV friends. And also to Wilderness Resort in Silver springs, and Ocala Resort. Slowly adapting to life in a RV. Have experienced a blowout on trailer tire. Did do some damage to entertainment slide & wheel well. Progressive Insurance absolutley great on repairs & accomadations. Been in the Presidential for 3 years now, have learned I don't like overhead cabinets above island(hit your head a lot), hubby would like a more private bath not open to bedroom, I would like a chair in bedroom for TV watching while hubby watches football.Getting to old to lie on bed for to long to watch TV. We found that the chevy 2500 strains pulling Presidential, hubby opted for new 2008 f350 diesel crew cab 4X4.We decided that it is time for our new RV. Know what we want now that we have lived in this one 3 years. Went to RV show in January 2009 to look at some new layouts, found what we looking for at LazyDays. 2009 Carrige Carri-Lite w/ 30' wall slide and windows in the Living area to enjoy our views. Has seperate bath, king bed, washer/dryer sideXside, fireplace two A/C heatpumps, dishwasher(I hate dishes)all cherry cabinets, and chair in bedroom w/footstool. Got great deal on our trade,(more than we paid for Presidential) and 1/4% less with 7-year warranty. Another bill to pay-off! Only truck & RV bill now other than living expenses.
New plans Son has wife of 2years and a baby on the way. Apartment to small for them, and can't stand to see them pay 8-900.00 for 2 bedroom. Came up with plan to buy property 1-1/4 acre and put new mobile home on it for the kids(They are paying the Mortgage) Will use address as home base. Set-up pad for RV. Nice view of pasture. No more rent. Saving more now!!
