What other expenses should I count on ?? . Did I say how excited WE are !!! any thought would be appreciated Thanks Craigger & Donna

Routine maintenance can get a tad expensive so I would budget for that. Don't forget insurance and would suggest a road side assistance plan. You will want folding chairs, a grill, a mat for the outside, and a good sense of humor. Oh, and don't forget the wine.
