Why don't you go pick up your trailer from Escape, then swing by Calgary, and I will have LOTS of great ideas for you, that you will just love. And, so will I.

I could also help you brush up on your metric, while we sample some of my many bottles of Scotch.
Now THATS how to convince a 'stubborn American' to learn metric -- ply him with Scotch. Why didn't you just say that in the first place?:

Robert,
All that being said, my suggestion is this. Buy something nice for Mrs. Robert, and save the rest for camping trips or save it for when you do retire.

I'd put it into an account and spend it 100% on the trailer. Whether site fees, fuel to go, or indoor storage. Or maybe all THREE!

Lucky problem to have

One part of me says save it, the other says YEAH, an account solely for RVing. I like the way you think Donna

There is always a qualified 501(c)3 charitable donation, you get a tax deduction using tax free income, sort of like a double whammy.

I love money that falls from the sky (or unexpected and I forgot about it). I'm close to retirement, don't know about you Robert. BUT, I'd use it to plan that trip of a life-time taken immediately after retirement. That's when you should have the best health you'll have... don't delay is what I'm trying to say. With this kind of cash, I could spend months traveling the US/Canada and maybe that camping trip to Alaska. It would take some planning, but that's half the fun!
