Everyone, my wife and I spent several months on the road with the HR and it was fun but I must tell you those big diesel pushers are a very expensive option to choose. I had a tremendous amount of repairs and maintenance on it in the way of slide out motors on the big slide. I sold it last fall as I was not enjoying it nearly as much as we did our Phoenix Cruiser. I also discovered my work was also my hobby as I really did enjoy my work so I took a job with the guy that started his company patterned after my old company. We still like to travel but only in a car at this point. We are both thinking another PC or Born Free might be in our future.

Sorry it has been so long since I checked in so I thought I would update everyone.

Yes, they probably are very expensive to maintain, and to say nothing about them being unsafe on the road with not much between you and the vehicle that wants to hit you head on.   Just my observation.
Your Word our Lord is a light to my feet and a lantern to my path...  Ps 119

I was never really intimidated by the short nose as I drive with extreme caution. I have always allowed a lot of space between me and the vehicle in front of me. That said, there is nothing you can do when a vehicle coming towards you wants to share your lane! I got tired of buying those gear motors and putting them in, installing shear pins that shear of repeatedly, shear pins that require you to be 7' tall and weighing only 130 so you Wil fit in the space and still be able to reach, spending a small fortune to service the whole rig and lastly, trying to find a spot you can EASILY fit in.

I see you are from Medicine Bow. We took our PC out west a few years ago and went to visit Medicine Bow. What a nice place! What memories we had in our PC.
