I am a disabled Veteran and the closest VA Hospital that can take care of me is about 300 miles away. In the last two months we have spent well over a $1,000.00 on hotel and resturants. My wife is a full time caregiver and we live on my disability. We CAN NOT continue these kind of bills. There for we purchased a 2005 Cruzer RV M-139 that is just big enough for both of us. We can stay right at the VA Hospital in Salt Lake City and have hookups. This will greatly decrease our expences and allow us to have home cooking instead of eating out each meal.

We found neighbors that had purchased this RV pulled it home and it has been setting there every sense. There are still nubs on the tires and even the plastic covering on things are still there. We were able to purchase this for less than half of the cost of a new model.

Thanks for being here and we will look forward from learning from you.
