John: What ever you do, Make sure the cooling system is up to snuff! i.e. huge aluminum radiator and high flow water pump, My buds motor home motor (big block Chevy) chucked it's gut's out last year because the temp gauge was not working right. Good luck in your search, BTW are you going to burn up your retirement fund on gasoline?

Ya, gas is an issue of course, but with the cost of flights and hotels, it appears to be about a wash. We love to travel and haven't been able to do much lately. The kids are tetering on the age where they arent going to want to be with us doing stuff, so hoping to squeeze a year or two out of them...

Why is it that when people start reaching retirement age, Not that John is there, but in General, when people reach the age that thier sight starts to fade, their reflexes ain't what they used to be, they don't hear as well as they used to and they can't stay awake as long as they used to that,
THEN they want to go out and buy a freagin BUS.

I made a really ugly one to embarass my family!
Actually it it comfortable for the boys and me. The back opens up into a kitchen area.

Cost me about $900 to make and can be towed by just about anything!
