Smile We did it! We have our new used TT coming soon

Well after hunting and looking for something we both liked and within a descent price range. We found it. With minimal work to be done!
1994 Catalina with 1 slide. I'm pleased, cant wait to get it home, and make it ours.

Several changes will be made to it, but I will be assisting in the changes. So excited.

And thank you to all who helped by answering my question, previously posted.
regarding all season unit. This one isn't but will be all cozy by the time I'm done.
Seamstress and handy woman a plus for making it a home on wheels!!

I assume you will camp for a night in the front yard before heading out.


Helps find the little things that you need to know...light switches, water pump switch, dead battery, etc.

X2 and then after that plan your first couple of trips close to home. Lets you get all the bugs worked out. Not just from the camper but, also from your set up/ take down/ what to take/ procedure.

Well here she is...........

She is a 31 ft Coachmen Catalina.
Had some minor work to do to her but she's almost set had to stop a few days as I got hurt, stupidly I might add,doing the work she needed.

Anyway worst is over, just have to clean the hot water heater out real well as its been sitting a while should be fine.

Thank you all for the warm welcome. I'am looking forward to my time here learning and most likely asking stupid questions.

Thanks again

Ginny

But Im healing and she's coming along.

You know, when I saw that photo with the saw in the picture, I was afraid it was involved in your injury. Then to read you actually cut off the end of your finger. Yikes!
That's awful! I hope you mend quickly, and please, keep a close eye on the other 9 digits!
Congrats on your purchase, it looks great. Do you know the model number?

Not off hand but I can find it I'm sure. model # that is.

Yeah I'm healing slowly but life and work goes on. Trying to get everything situated is worse than moving. Lol.

Thank you all for the concern.

Now I have a question, any educated guesses on how long 2 30lb propane tanks last? I'm using it for cooking and occasional heat, while in my yard prepping it etc.

thanks again

Ginny
