Howdy Folks

We were over the road truck drivers for years then settled into being business owners. We recently decided to close the business and retire to being "Snowbirds" We just purchased a used 2004 National Tropical 37' long and only 25,000 miles on a Cat engine. This is a first for us as we have never had time to camp or travel other than when we drove over the road. Now we plan on seeing places we could not see when we were Professional drivers. We recently purchased an RV lot in Florida and will travel there in a few days to stay until Spring. We have Serviced the unit completely and are ready to sail south in our land yacht.

Howdy back at you.......

I like folks that start off a greeting with HOWDY

That MH probably seems 'spacious' compared to the cab/sleeper you probably traveled in.
Most folks 'downsize' but sounds like you are 'up-sizing'

Enjoy this next adventure ---it's a wonderful lifestyle.

(we miss it dearly---but life throws curve balls. Just have to catch them)

Best of luck........

And remember..there is NO delivery time frame to meet.

Welcome. Sounds like some great times ahead of you and your snowbird status. We have a National Dolphin gasser and we love it. If you ever pass through CA be sure to wave.
