We did it!

After 15 months of "shopping" we have bought a new (to us) MH. We have had TT's in the past, but have decided to go with a DP. We selected a 2005 Mandalay model 40E that has 4 slides, the interior that Peg wanted, and a 350 hp Cat for power. We will be picking the MH up in Tempe, AZ on Jan 24th and heading out for the beginning of many new adventures. We are so excited. I have been reading the many posts on this forum and have found them to be of great help. Thanks to everyone that has posted. This is a great forum. John

Beautiful home! We got our 1st back in June. I remember the feeling of being exited and nervous at the same time. We hope you love yours as much as we do ours and have many safe, fun and blessed adventures! Congratulations!

That's a great looking unit and I hope you get to really enjoy it. I like the gray tones.
