Did you miss this point?
"Any other mature insight, links, stories would be appreciated"
I articulated clearly my thoughts, concerns and indecisions...just wanted some mature response from folks who are either in this predicament or know someone who have addressed this challenge.
"Get an RV not a GSA"..."shovel for roadside burial" comments were not solicited and needed...nothing constructive.
your 16 years of riding comes close to my 24...just so you understand who you may be responding to.
