I'd think you would go for a fifth wheeler to haul with your pickup.  My Dad had a 34' Carriage back when they were first putting slideouts on them.  Had all the room they needed and they traveled most of the country in it.

Sorry, I never seen the original post.  I have a class C. B's were too small and A's were too big!  I feel like Goldilocks! :)  Although mine says it sleeps 6, I changed the over the cab bed into my closet, I keep my table always in the upright position, and I sleep on the queen bed in the bedroom in the back.  I really love living in it.  It is just the right size for one!

While we were in Florida we saw a pretty nice unit even though it was 20+ years old.

An all aluminum class A body on a Chevrolet chassis with a 454.  I didn't look but guessing it was a front mounted engine.  It was only 20-22 feet long and the main queen sized bed drops down from the ceiling which eliminates a bedroom and gives a little more room in the bath-shower.  We got to talking to the owner because of the very neat mural that is painted on the back.  He was very proud of it and the care it has been shown shows.

I just saw my wrens for the first time this year.  Doing some nest maintenance. Last year I had 3 sets.  Put out 2 more houses this yr so I'll see if more off spring come back..I had to plug the hole down to 1" to keep the sparrows out. Don't know if wrens will think it's large hole and stay out

This one looked like it would have been ahead of it's time when it was new but it had really been well taken care of.  I've got pictures of the mural on the back which is what actually caught my eye first.  After we stopped and got to talking to the owner I saw that it had Ohio plates on it and after we got to talking the guy is originally from Toledo and has done a lot of work right up through this area over the years.

Sunshine and a big fat squirrel taunting the dogs!!!  I'm not sure who has more fun with this 'game'...

the dogs or the squirrels!!!

The yard is starting to come into it.  I had to get the sweeper out and spend a couple of days picking up the clumps that were left from a couple of mowings.  Got to do some trimming around the edges now.  My wife has been busy working on a couple of her gardens and we're trying to figure out what we can do out on the front corners of the yard.

My wife just came in from letting a dog out and she says the tulips are coming out!!!

Seagulls in the field across the road...   

Lake Erie must have a lot of wind this morning.

We saw the Direct TV Airship (blimp) fly right overhead on it's way from Indianapolis to Detroit.  It has a 30'x70' LED monitor built into one side of it that is the largest monitor in the world.

Here it is taking off at Tampa Executive Airport.

Here's the huge LED display:

I saw the Blimp as well, but it was already north of Erie where we went this afternoon - so I couldn't read the "side" other than I knew it wasn't a goodyear.   I thought it was the Met Life (if those are still flying)

If it was 'Meth Life' it would belong in Lenawee County....

My evening was filled with coons eating cat food on the back deck and me chasing them blazing away.  You'd think they would get smart.  Must be Democrats.

I saw kayakers, canoers, adults and kids fishing, and just enjoying the peacefulness of the evening view.

I saw crops growing - golfers and some happy kids on a electric quad runner from 1994 that works with new batteries...
