Well we did it!

We have been looking at several different Class A's over the last two months and thought we were purchasing a different model earlier. We continued our search to find one that fit our needs just right. Were trading in the 27ft Class C for a 1999 Fleetwood Southwind 32V model. Just under 40k miles on the V-10. Placed a deposit on it today and they are converting the rear twin beds back into a queen. They also installed hardwood floors in the coach. Comes with the options that I wanted (satelite, jacks, slide, dual AC's, driver's door, backup camera). I return from Afghanistan in two weeks and pick it up then. We will be taking it on a 12 day trip over the holiday's to Charlston, SC and Florida. We are pretty excited!!!

Here are a few pictures:

What a nice unit.........someone really took care of it, looks like new. Enjoy your trip, and I know your excited about the purchase. It will be a whole new ball game moving up to a class A from a C. Good luck, and travel safe.

Thanks to everyone for the support and comments. We're definitely looking forward to many years of family fun with this. Two of our daughters left for college this year so it's just the wife, 6 year old and I to travel. I'm hoping the V-10 will run well. I've already researched the performance upgrades offered by Brazel if more is needed.
