My sweetheart has been looking forward to retirement pretty much ever since he's worked full time. His dream is a big truck, a fifth wheel trailer and the open road. Traveling the USA and visiting all the beautiful and interesting places there are to visit in this country and Canada too!
Owning a travel trailer doesn't make financial sense for us while we get 3 weeks of vacation each year and don't have a free place to park. But 10 years from now, if we quit working full time, sell our house in the city and put our stuff in storage for while, I'd be willing to hit the road for a couple of years. I could live in California for a while, in Colorado for a while, along the Gulf Coast, see places I've never seen and meet lots of wonderful folks along the way.
So now and then we go "window shopping" for travel trailers and I think I could rough it for a while in something like this one.
It's got a nice entertainment wall...in the bedroom. And it has a closet all the way across the end. I'd lose that striped bedspread though. Oh dear, already redecorating my fantasy travel trailer!
This one has a nice entertainment/storage wall in the living area also. But wait! No fireplace? This one might not do after all.
It does have a lovely kitchen.
And a cozy pair of recliners for us old folks
These things are amazing (and yes, expensive)! I guess I could rough it by "camping out" for weeks at a time in a travel trailer between trips home to visit family. What about you? What are your retirement dreams? Would you be willing to hit the open road for months? Or is it so far away that you don't even think about it?
