Well we finally committed and bought our "new" 2001 Shasta Phoenix 285BH 5th wheel. It has the floor plan that we've been looking for. It was actually the one that we didn't really think we'd buy. Until we saw it. Very clean, "like new" clean. We headed to the Detroit area at 5 this morning and started looking. We didn't bring it home today. They have to prep it so I'll vpick it up later in the week. Which turned out to be a good thing because it started to snow pretty good. And with the way the people were driving we were glad we didn't pull it home today.

Thanks for the well wishes everyone. We can't wait to get rid of all this snow and start using this camper. And that's coming from an avid snowmobiler. lol.
