We started out with a 25 foot Airstream travel trailer. Then we went to a 34 foot Gulfstream motorhome.  We were satisfied with the Gulfstream. 

We had discussed if and when we traded what we would want.  They were: a diesel pusher with a king-size bed.  The king-size bed is available on special order but expensive. We figured we would never have one.

 Well, let me tell you, Luck was with us.  We were not looking for a new motorhome when we went to Tom Johnson RV Park, Marion, N.C.  to see the fall colors.  Low and behold, there was a 40 foot diesel pusher American Dream motorhome with a king-size bed. It also has a washer-dryer, small leather couch, another couch, refrigerator with ice maker and just as nice as any small condo you could ever want.  It is a l998 model in perfect condition whose owner traded in on a new one.  Well, it followed us home, and the bank said we could keep it. 

We  expect to travel the USA in style.

Made in the Shade

Some want a motorhome,
Some a fifth wheel.
Both have nice kitchens
For cookin' your next meal.
Some have a diesel,
Some a Vortec.
As long as the wheels are turning,
I say, "What the heck?"
Some have slide-outs,
Some of 'em don't
If your battery's dead,
Well, slide out it won't.
Some have four-way jacks,
Some of 'em don't.
If you don't know how to use 'em.
Well. level they won't.
Some have nice murals
Painted on the side.
You can buy a long RV,
Or even extra wide.
Some have washer-dryers,
Some a satellite dish,
A few pull boats behind them
For those who like to fish.
All have their awnings
To keep you in the shade.
I think RVers
Have really got it made.
