Just got my 1st motorhome , from Calgary

Iam so happy to be a member of this Awsome site, I have always loved rv's and now I finally have my own. A couple of months ago when me and my wife found out that we were expecting a second child she told me the only way I could have a motorhome , is if it was free lol after two months on kijiji I now have a 1988 mallard sprinter on a g30 chassis and all it costed me was a case of beer to a super nice old retired guy who said he had enjoyed it for 15 years and was now ready for someone else's family to enjoy..

Very cooooool. I like stories like this. A motor home for a six pack? Awesome. Very nice of the old timer to pay it forward. May you and the family have many great adventures.
