    ooo dear if your so undecisive maybe you ought to make certain what you would prefer to do in your retirement.

    Do you still holiday even though you have a heavy work load if so do you prefer hotels now.

    I love hotels as I can really relax and get looked after but i love going away in my motorhome as I can please myself what time I get up, go to bed eat etc etc etc.:Wink:

    if you keep it and don't use it much it wont loose too much value.

    however if you sell it when it comes to buying another one you may not be able to get one the same for the money you sold it for.
    if that kinda makes sense. and some say better the devil you know.

    No point in a MH that's unused. What about the bike ?

    If you are busy working and enjoying it stick at it, if you are that used to work, retirement might kill you. Retirement is very disturbing, lots of guilt, "I should be doing something, what can I do ? Dunno. Can't be bothered doing that".

    Really that is two questions now - do you really want to keep on working how long have you to go or are you thinking of fulltimeing touring Europe at your leisure maybe doing a bit of work on the way = is work a necessity or a habit that has to be endured, there is a lot of liveing to be done and it does not all need to be at work...if its a possibilty that you may go full time and you like the motorhome you have think hard before you take a loss on selling it.

    Work isn't and shouldn't be everything....there shoulkd be a good balance and thats where your MH comes in...getting away from the work, the stress etc...

    If you are not getting away due to workload then I think you need to have a careful look at your lifestyle...
