Ken, I hope , and pray for the best for you, and your wife. If she's like mine, they are no happier than when rolling down the highway with the rv.

So very sorry to hear about your wife's health problems. With todays modern science and technology, hopefully she will recover 100%. And, you will be back out on the road.

The doctors told me my husband would never be able to travel again in 2008... we made a trip from FL to Branson, MO that winter and traveled until 2015 when he passed away... Don't give up HOPE!

Been rving since 2003. Guess we will have to give it up. DW has Ovarian cancer. Guess we will sell the 5th and hopefully get loan paid off. We may get a small bumper pull later on. Really hate to admit getting older and quitting what we loved doing together.


similar story for us so we sold the alpenlite and now a 2021 Jayco Whitehawk in in the driveway just for a feel good feeling foe wife. Might never use it but just maybe we will. 80 coming up next year for us.

Best wishes to your wife and you. Its hard to say what the best thing to do is other than what you believe to be right. Take care, and I hope that this is not truly the end of rv'ing for your family.

Wishing your wife well.

The day will come when we all have to give up the RV lifestyle. It won't be a happy day. We went into it with a plan to have it 4-5 years. 14 years later we are still at it with no plans to stop but realise there will not be another 14 years.

Something will give. Health, finances, tired of it, run out of places to go, truck wore out, trailer wore out. Something will demand that we stop.

Even if that time is next year it has been one helluva ride. There are thousands of pictures to remember it by.

Best wishes for your wife Ken. Don't ever give up, the power of prayers works. Sure hope you get to continue RVing, even if this just delays your adventures.

Hang in there.
