New to us 2001 Beaver Patriot Ticonderoga 37

2001 Beaver Patriot 37 Ticonderoga, 68k, 2 slides, hydro hot, auto Girard, W/D, garden tub, beautiful built in LCD TV's in front & bedroom, & the list goes on.
Our third, & hopefully last RV. First was very nice Tiffin 30 gasser, second was poorly engineered & newer DP that we couldn't wait to get rid of - learned our lesson on quality mfg. Sought only CC & Beaver under 40' for Natl Parks we like as well as long term travels now that we're finally retiring.
Got a call from Jon at BCS in Bend (had been up there last year to look at a 36' Patriot but it wasn't right for us) - Jon, Roland and the staff were absolutely great & courteous, you would have thought that we were buying the most expensive vs least expensive rig on their lot. Well, this one was just what we had been wanting & as soon as we saw it we knew that we were going to buy it & love it. I don't know who the prior owner was other than a Cat area manager in the NW. Everything was in great shape with many upgrades & changes - no obvious deferred maintenance. I own a chain of automotive oil change facilities & am reasonably mechanically knowledgable and feel good about this purchase.

Congrats on your rig. You waited and were rewarded. Clean, classic front. Non-hidden air-horns! Why do they seem to be disappearing? You can fit where you want to go and are satisfied with your purchase experience. Don't see much wrong in that. And it's not dark, should help with the sun. Although you pic doesn't show a very nice vista though

A shower big enough any family could cram all the kids in at once, classy not trashy fabrics. What more could you want? I guess you're an Eager Beaver now. Sorry couldn't resist/

BTW did I mention it looks good?
