  1. Thanks for the insurance links. I thought I posted a reply to your last message here, but apparently not. Oh well, maybe someday I'll really figure out the mechanics of this forum. I actually typed my last reply twice. Oh gee!I wonder if you'll get this one.
  2. Well I did it. Purchased a 94 Fleetwood Tioga. It's in very good shape, and I got a pretty good deal. Now there's many, many things to do, including getting insurance. Where does one go to purchase insurance for an rv? One who currently has no insurance whatsoever.
  3. I wonder if I can reply here, or if it's gonna tell me that email is already in use. Thanks for your replies. Guess it's digital. Just hope I can maintain an internet connection.
  4. Well I turned my search in a different direction, again. After careful thought, I decided against a trailer. I just don't want to tow. Back to looking at Class Cs or Bs.... And I found one, after weeks of searching. It's a class C, 1994 Fleetwood Tioga. I haven't purchased it quite yet, but it appears to be "the one"! Hallelujah. Right now, among many other things, I'm trying to find a good Campground Directory. It's confusing. They don't even call it by that name anymore. Any help or suggestions with this would be greatly appreciated.
  5. I should quote the entire post, as it's extremely informative and very helpful, at least to me at this time. And it's one of the most encouraging replies i've gotten. I guess the trick for me was to shift to a trailer vs a motorhome. Thank you FL-JOE for your input !!
  6. You might be "spot-on". Sorry. But this does look very promising at first glance. Thanks for the tip!
  7. How can I find this person? My network is very limited. Thank you !!!
  8. Hello again. Thank you again for all your previous replies. After much thought & consideration, and more research, I'm considering a (relatively short) travel trailer. I have a couple prospects on craigslist, and I need to go and inspect them. None of them are actually local. My RV knowledge and experience is pretty short, so I want to have someone with me who knows RVs, and can help me inspect a travel trailer for purchase. I don't know anyone offhand, and I will pay someone for this service. The two I'm looking at right now are located in Sauk City WI, and Cary IL. (I'm in Janesville WI.) I appreciate any & all responses to this.
  9. RV Trader is for sellers, not buyers. Sorry I couldn't figure out what the special combination is to quote something.
  10. Thank you again for all your replies, feedback and suggestions. I really appreciate this and this is a great forum. I've had the RV in the back of my mind for over a year, and it's difficult to make the mental shift away from it. A camper van or conversion van type thing is probably a very good idea, though at this point I'm not crazy about it. And quite unfortunately I'm not too much of a handyman, but I'm willing and able to do just about anything, with a little guidance here and there. I just need to decide what I'm going to do.
  11. Not sure exactly how to maneuver around in this forum. I can't reply to each of you individually, so I'm attempting to reply to my original post, an "umbrella reply" if you will. Thank you so much for all of your replies and feedback, and especially for telling me what I need to hear. All of this is very valuable information for me. So apparently I'm underfunded. I sure thought 20k would be enough for what I want to do. This is rather disappointing and I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it. Don't have a plan B in my pocket. I figured 10k for the initial purchase and repairs, modifications and additions. And 10k for everything else, including reserves. Thank you for bringing up medical care, I think I'm pretty well covered here, with Medicare plus Medicaid. I just have to find out how portable Medicaid is between states. Thank you very much, Frank
