Clarify my previous post

I was at a national landmark in Arizona, trying to walk on a trail to see petroglyphs. The Ranger said it was an easy trail. But it wasn't and I couldn't do it. There was a couple trying to tell me how a wheelchair, Medicare etc us all free. At the time, I didn't have Medicare yet, but I couldn't afford Obamacare, because my "monthly fee" was going to be $1200 / month. So I went without insurance. They insisted my Obamacare would be free to.

I didn't want to imply anyone on the forum has given me that erroneous advice.

If you decide to go with Original Medicare and add a supplement policy, you have 6 months to do that after you are eligible for Medicare. I am now past the 6 month mark, so to switch back means they can deny me or increase rates due to pre-existing conditions. So I'm stuck with an Advantage plan for now. I know I can go to an E.R. when I'm out of state. But for my regular dr appointments to renew prescriptions, I will have to fly back or drive to Reno, because with an Advantage plan you are only covered at "home" with the GP and hospital you declare.

In a few years I will get a small pension, so maybe I could afford a supplement plan then. For "normal" people they run $150-200 / mo. So with my ill health I expect $400 / mo. Plus Medicare B of $104 / month.

It's funny that people who don't have Medicare, like to tell me how Medicare is free, and my surgeries are free, and I could get a free electric wheelchair. Don't I wish!
ven in Canada it is not free, lucky for me I can get enough drugs to carry me for up to 3 months of travel, My wife has a pretty good policy for traveling anywhere in the world even though I have Diabetes, amongst other medical problems were covered quite well, we are lifetime members of Good Sam and we have some overages through them as well.
It costs me personally around $80,00 a month for just about everything which is paid for by her old Company, plus their extended health helps me somewhat around 80% then my Pharmacare cuts in for the rest and what is not paid for I can write off in my income tax, I still have to pay some out of pocket but if I had to pay it all I think I put the gun to me head and pull the trigger.

Sorry to hear of the problems your having. Medical insurance sure has changed in the last few years.

Back to Little Guy trailers. I had mine in the rain and what I found annoying was if it was a heavy rain, or big drips coming down (when parked under a tree) the fenders made a big noise. I finally put earplugs in. Maybe putting some kind of a pad on the fenders when stuck inside during a rain would deaden the sound.

Plus, being stuck inside unable to stand up during such times is not fun. Or changing out of wet, muddy clothes. I had no side tent because a big part of purchasing a trailer was to get away from having to deal with a wet tent.
