I have 96000 on my 8.1, Good for another 100,000. Mobil One is all it's ever had.

Hey, thanks everyone! Sometime's it helps to get some other perspectives on the issue. I also appreciate all of the advice. After all, you're right, it wasn't meant to be. I'll find the right one when the time is right.

On to bigger and better things. Hey Arch, where can I pick up one of those crystal balls?

Good deals on motorhomes are like buses and girlfriends.

If you miss one just wait, there will be one just around the corner.

Everytime I get mad at myself for missing out on a deal, another one seems to come along and I am happier than I would have been with the first one. This has been true with furniure, boats, motorhomes etc....

I'm truly very sorry to hear about that. Puts all the motorhome "problems" into prospective.

We have been through a long and scary health concern with my wife. Thankfully she is doing well. Thoughts and prayers to you and your wife.

Walmart....However I got the last one. I was looking for the money tree they had on sale because my kids killed mine. Figured if I bought a Chrystal Ball it would tell me where the money trees were. Found out there are no more money trees anywhere...Oh well...

Keep looking. There's a deal out just waiting for you. Don't beat yourself up so bad. We all have stories about the one that got away.

Just great, now I've missed out on a new coach, a money tree AND the crystal ball. This week isn't turning out so well for me.

If it wasn't for bad luck you wouldn't have any luck at all. You're doomed.
