With our backpacking days behind us, my XYL and I purchased a used travel trailer recently and are giving serious consideration to buying a Class C motorhome in 3 years when I retire. The plan for then is to take extended trips, making lengthy stops along the way to explore national parks and other places that give us cause for pause.
Of course, there's no way in the world I'd go on such journeys without a ham radio so the search is on for a rig that would offer me the most bang for the buck, take up little space, cover all the HF bands and easily transition from mobile to portable if the spirit moves me. That and the need for a computer rules out my existing Flex 6300.
I'll be financing the radio by selling some current gear in the coming months. Those items will be posted here before going (if no sale) to eBay.
