Time to make memories with our first RV

I was reminiscing about when I was younger. Camping with the family. Some of my oldest and best memories as a child. Where has time gone? Why did we stop?

Then I realized that I remember when I was my sons age (6) camping, and I LOVED it.

Then I realized that I, nor my wife and boy have traveled the country. At that moment, I became determined to find a coach!

I had a just a few stipulations.
1.) It must be a pusher. My parents have a pace arrow (gas). While its a good RV, I really liked the "idea" of having power in the hills (we live in the eastern mountains)

2.) It must be well, or decently maintained. I don't mind fixing a few things, but don't want to take on another daily project (outside of the constant maint. of a motorhome of course)

3.) 35k was the absolute limit (this number had crept up to 35k as soon as I saw this one)

so, here it is!

2000 American Dream DDS 350 cummins
2 owner. Well maintained. Good condition for the year.
