After two years of contemplating, and sweaty palms in the finance office, I finally made the move up from our gasser to a Diesel Pusher!

I found a good deal on a used 2005 Fleetwood Providence 39J, and just couldn't walk away. Now come the payments...

Of course I'm doing this all "Bass-ackwards" because I haven't even sold my Adventurer yet.

Congratulations Craig P on your new Fleetwood Providence very nice looking motorhome.

I wish you Good Luck selling you Adventurer .

I bought a brand new boat back in 1988 before I sold the old one it took about four or five months to sell the old one.

Shhh....don't tell my wife that.

I figure it will take me a while too, especially since winter's coming.

I should have mentioned that I bought the new boat in February not the best time to sell the old one here in Michigan.

Hey Craig,

That MH looks beautiful! Congratulations!

I'm sure you will enjoy many years of travel and the positive aspects of a diesel.

Thanks for the compliments!

The Adventurer I'm selling is a 1998 30WQ. I've listed in the forum classified, but it doesn't like like it's been approved at this point.

Sweet rig! I'm in the same boat. Have to sell the pop-up now that we've made the Class C purchase. Only way I got away with doing it backwards is because the pop-up payment is only $158 bucks a month. Otherwise, my financial advisor (DW) would have vetoed the new rig!

Congrats on the new purchase!

My original post is a few months. Luckily I have the Adventuer sold and I'm back to only one RV payment.

Have fun with the new rig!
