After sleeping on this and really thinking it through, recognizing all of Dutch Star Don's great contributions to the community and careful review of finances I have decided to gift DSD a new coach myself. In my careful selection of the 2019 specs captured when they were available (or not) I had to ensure plenty of capability for mods including a speaker to play the tape recorded "vroom vroom" for surround engine noise, and of course a push pull plunger for air brake sound enhancements. I'm coordinating delivery and PDI now, as soon as I know the date I will announce and of course have it recorded for all to see the presentation.

Please, no assistance with this needed, I really wanted to do this but I will gladly forward your contributions to a different gofundme for a 2027 Essex on order. I hope everyone will sign the card (left out of view for scale reasons) that will be presented at PDI, taped to the delivery.

Hey Steve, I'm one of the lucky ones too. Getting ready to mail my check off so I can claim my money! I'll probably need it because last week I got a call from the IRS that if I didn't call them back right away the police were headed to my house! Been hiding out in the coach since then.

Now I'm really depressed.......the Go Fund Me account is moving slowly and I just got word that my new Avalon pontoon boat still hasn't shipped. Delayed another week.

Oh yeah......I won that boat on a show. Yeah, on a show, that works! No money to buy a new boat.

I sent it priority mail? I figured it would compliment your coach. Can't trust USPS for anything.

Man..I was ready to contribute to your fund but now I have to hold back for fear you will just use the money for anti depressant drugs instead of the new coach it was intended for.

Besides....I think I may need to keep my money to be able to do any future repairs to my old coach that I am soon picking up! Sorry Don. I am pretty sure that Neal has you covered though. Cheer up!

Hate to break the news to you Ron, but you will need to add another million to get a new one (MSRP).

Best of luck DSD. I had $250k I would have given but it is Ventana money. Oh well I will just give it to the guy at the next intersection that needs more cigarettes.

I'll check the tracking. You may need wire cutters to remove the roof for decorating I'm sure your new welder will work well, just be careful not to melt the whole rig with the flame.
