Smile Happy days ahead!!!

Hi everyone!!!!

Happy to announce that I bought a 2008 Beaver Contessa today. It is in incredible condition with only 28,600 miles on it. Powered by the 400 hp C9 Caterpillar. Aqua-Hot system, solar panels, elec/propane fridge, 8000kw generator....the list goes on...

I am picking it up in a couple of weeks. Thanks to whomever it was that wrote to somebody in the blog saying "don't overlook a Beaver". That stuck in my head as I had my heart set on a Tiffin Phaeton.

It will soon be time to start outfitting it....
