Smile If cashed out, would you do it again?

I bought mine for many reasons. I've had it a month now. Driven it from Michigan to Nashville, then to California, and now we live in it five nights per week.

We expect to use the BB heavily for the next ten or more years, and keep it in the best condition we can. This is a responsibility we accept.

We look foward to meeting many of you in person.

There has been some mental stress with driving a big and complex machine, as I'm driven to understand how all of the mechanical and electrical systems work together. That's just me.

The other night when leaving an Ace Hardware store, we sighted a nice Jamboree C-type motorhome. My wife asked if I had any regrets and if I'd think of going to something simpler.

The answer in our case is NO WAY.

So here's a hypothetical question... If for some reason you were cashed out and relieved of your BB, would you do it again???

If so, then what model would you be attracted to, now that you know a whole lot more about BB than before.

I would do it again in a heart beat. No question. I have had issues, like everybody, but none of mine have been anything that hasn't been manageable. All of us have needed a learning curve. Since having mine for 6 years I feel very comfortable with my choice.

As far as which Bird would I go to next? In all probability anyone that would fit my checkbook. But the more I see and hear about the M-380 I would be very tempted to go that route.

We also would do it again. The only thing we would change would be to go to a 31' FC as we don't need the extra space of the 35'.

Yes Dad there are a few of us. I had a chance to bail out in 2010 but never even considered it.

We have had four already and working on number five. I think it is an addiction.

Some of us don't wait to get cashed out before we do it again, we just become members of the exclusive 2 bird club

We purchased our PT almost 6 years ago thinking we would do a few of trips with our daughter before she lost interest. We've now covered 38 states, much of Canada, over 50,000 miles and are completely hooked. It's become an addiction. It will take an intervention of some kind to cash out. It's all good!
