welcome welcome welcome. first i will say that i dont buy anything new that drops in value ( autos, trucks, motor cycles, and rv'z ) that i don't have to.
but i do have a staement /question, that you or someone may answer. i have owned many rv's and am now with our 3rd motor couch, and have traveled the USA and Canada, including ALL of Alaska, and i am a junior member and you are a senior member, here on the site.
next. i have learned that anything in life claims its share of money. rv's and boats seem to find their way to the top of my chart but followed closely by motor cycles. and tho i have many years attending to all the above , i still find myself being over welwmd by differences and technical advances in up grading with newer and better units.
my first few rv's came with a key or keys. my first mh came with a ring of keys and 2 sheets of paper, the blind man (she drove), had made after feeling his way over every inch, in and outside, of the coach so he could See how it all worked!!
the next mh came with 2 big rings of keys and a thin folder of papers. but then we bought our last , resently purchased mh, a 2000 winnie adventurer 35u. i love it. she thanks its tooo big and thinks we should have kept the 85 winne chieftain, as it was fine and in great shape (actually we still have it and need to sell it) and she , well this one is growing on her, feels at home with the roominess with the slides out and she didn't have to be involved with blocking and pulling up and backing and blocking, etc to level it. but mb (momma bear - Ruth) ( and me some what) are suffering from gagetitish.!!!
tho this mh came with only 2 sets of only 3 keys. one key for the for the ingnition, one for the entry doors' one foor All the basement doors plus one key for the outside entertainment center. But it came with a factory case/folder, so full of paper, that it takes a man to haul it around, and a lawyer to read and desypher it all. i have read every single piece at least once and many of them Several times.
i am so thankful to the 2 preivious owners of this coach, as they took really good care of it, other than it sitting the last 3 years, and they also kept up with all that info. a body would be lost and stressed without this info. i was also impressed with the fact that all other paper work was kept, including service and repair orders and any info that may be needed for changes in equipment.
i am so thankful for ALL rv'ers, both here and those on the roads we traveled, that have shared their love and passion, and of course their knowledge, of rv'ing and of rv'z, with us simple lil folks from central va.
we are new members to irv2, but i still want to say welcome brother and may we see each other out there, some day, some where.!!
