After a stint in the USN(Gulf of Tonkin Yacht Club) I spent 41 years with the phone company. I never could afford a newer DP but am happy with my 14 yr old gasser. It has for sometime been labeled with the 2 magic words:...PAID FOR!
Retired from navy 30 years on my 50th birthday. Great present to my wife. Started as enlisted and retired as an officer. Spent two and a half years as otr truck driver. Completly retired at 54. Love our 2005 v10 gaser. Never wanted a diesel.
Retired from the Air Force Feb 1, 1992, 20 years 20 days. I'll retire again January 4, 2014 from the US Gov/DOD (Dept of Defense), 20 years. DW retired a year ago from the Justice Dept/DEA with 28 years.
Our truck & 5'er, paid for. Unless I wreck'em, we'll drive and tow'em as long as we stay healthy enough to travel.
Happy camping!!! See y'all down the road!!!

Well I designed homes for the past twenty plus years! Of course in this economy I don't design many now! I am looking to my heavenly father to turn that around in the future. I am now driving your kids and grand kids to and from school! Good job for VERY little pay, but it's a job.
As far as the pusher, as stated you can find really nice ones that have been cared for and still operate as they should. We bought our 93 Navigator for 14K painted it and redid the interior and we are into it for just around 22-24K Even though we don't have too much money we still enjoy just going out and meeting other nice folks who are struggling just as we are, but you know what?? We are thankful, we have a roof over our head, food on the table and clothes on our backs so we are fairing better than 80% of the worlds population!!
