What other investment vehicles do you recommed I look into for retirement (tax deferred) that could bring me a better return than just me buying stocks in RM/RB type companies? Or, am I better off being a Fool in the stock market? I have about $500-1000 per month extra, depending on my spending.>>

Around Fooldom, we avoid recommendations because we believe investment decisions are best left to the individual based on your own knowledge, research and personal risk tolerance. In your case, the only other tax deferred option available is an annuity, an alternative Fools don't view with much fondness. For details, see our Annuity area at http://www.fool.com/retirement/annuities/annuities01.htm. Thus, if you don't use an annuity, IMHO the best alternative left is a long term, buy and hold investment in a taxable account.
