Upgraded to DP

I have been looking for a DP for the last 3 months. I had a 1999 Thor w/6.8L and it was a good coach. I found a 2002 Fleetwood Expedition 36T w/ 100M on it. Immaculate inside and out...1 owner had a 18M paint job on exterior, not a scratch on it. Assure my wife I made right decision...did I? Ha.

If you're happy and the wife is happy, then it was a good decision.

swagn,
May I ask, what is "100M" miles mean, 100, 1000, or, 100,000 miles? And, what does "18M" mean on the paint job? $18,000.00 dollars? What? Glad you found what you like. Lots of good help on here with knowledgeable folks ready to lend a hand if and when needed or asked.

In these days of tech and internet, we usually use "k" to indicate thousands - 5k, 18k, etc. The old-fashioned "M" abbreviation is also thousand from the non-tech days (Roman numerals), so I'm guessing he means 100,000 and 18,000 and definitely not "million."

I upgraded from a 2000 Thor Hurricane to a 2003 Fleetwood Expedition last year. My wife loves the quiet and comfort while traveling and the space while parked. You did good!

swagn,
I thank you for answering me on this. I know what "K" means in this sort of thing but, "M" was not too clear.

Believe it or not (my random eating my lunch and posting trivia) in the Banking world we still use M for Thousands. My understanding is it traces back to the Latin word "Mille", meaning Thousand. I need to remember to adjust my abbreviation when emailing as one time I had a client very excited we approved from for a $100M Commercial Truck facility and they were thinking a very different number then I was.
