    • Dave, Thank you for your service and sacrifice.  Wish it could be different.  
    • We're SD residents and we make an effort to find out what the statewide issues are, such as Constitutional Amendments or referendums. We look at the local issues on the ballot but frequently don't vote on those.
    • We hosted at Big Lake SP in NW MO last year and planned to visit there again this summer. They have been completely flooded. The last time that happened there was talk about closing the park. It was rebuilt then, but this time may be a different story. Since the park and town are literally IN the Missouri River, will the taxpayers stand for two rebuilds in seven years? SHOULD it be rebuilt? Those questions aren't for us to answer, but I'm sure that many people who are asking them WILL have to answer them. If we can't stay at Big Lake we'll find another place to go. Be sure to check the State department of transportation website for road closures and call or email any campgrounds you are interested in far enough in advance to allow you to look at Plans B, C, D, E and F.
    • Why are you focused on a Class B? Have you done some initial research that leads you in that direction, or is it just because it is a smaller vehicle? What sort of travel plans do you have? How many people and pets? Do any of them have mobility or health issues? How often will you be traveling, and how long will you stay in one place? Are you going to have some other means of transportation (other than your own two feet) for shopping, sightseeing, etc? Unless you are fine with packing up in order to go to the store, you will want to have something else for that. Are you going to be full-timing, or is this just for weekends and short vacations? Have you thought about what you will do when the weather is bad and you can't go outside?
    • We've been full-timing in a 1993 Foretravel for five years now. Yes, we've had some problems, but nothing that we couldn't handle. Condition and history are everything. If you haven't already done so, find the owners forum for that brand and ask about known issues for that model. There may be people there that can do an initial inspection for you. If not, find someone to do one for you. Spending a couple hundred dollars for an inspection can save you thousands in repairs. Initial quality may be a factor. The more expensive the coach was when new, the more likely it will have been well cared for. Yes, there are exceptions, but those are rare. Find a similar model at PPL to get an idea of the low end of the price range.
