    I was on my way to buy a boat and found a motorhome. What happened? I need help. I guess I will drive it around Europe.

    I did the same in March this year. No regrets yet, there are many interesting places in Europe once you tell the navigator to omit highways.
    But it's time-consuming.

    I am surprised you are so sympathetic. I expected all kind of sarcastic remarks ;)

    Gonzo, there were only reactions from Australia and Europe, the nice guys.
    But now the US wakes up.

    I guess the Saffas were quiet in jealousy - You had escaped and they are still furiously building anything that will float to get out:D:D

    Using techniques I learned from boatbuilding, I turned my boat trailer into a teardrop camper. We travel around the country with it. I am designing a boat that will fit in the bed of the truck so we can camp and boat during our outings.

    If the bottom is flat enough, and you can get it going high enough speeds,... You can skip it like a stone across water!

    Was a great trip.You will enjoy I think.

    The wrong time of the year, but maybe a good time to get a deal on a motorhome.
