Check them out and decide on the floor plan that works for you and Kate. That said here's MO on the list:

#1. Things that I see... Has a rear radiator which requires more maintenance as the cranckcase ventilation tends to stick to the radiator core along with dust and dirts so it has t be cleaned more often. Not sure if the genny is on a slide out or not. If it's not then will be harder to service. Tire size is not listed so hard to say what the load range and weight ratings are and whether they will give you the carrying and towing capacities you need. No photos with the awnings out. Check them.

#2. Appears to have a side radiator. Looks well taken care of.
Here's the brochure: http://www.newmarcorp.com/wp-content.../1998dsb-1.pdf

#3. Appears to have a side radiator. No Slides. Doesn't mention a generator. Clean, but not real clean.

#4. While it appears it has a side radiator, if all the other "new" items listed in the add are correct the owner seems to have kept the maintenance up on it. I would think it's a pretty good buy. Here's the brochure: http://fleetwoodrv.com/frvlibrary/do.../1999_di_f.pdf

#5. Appears to be a rental. I think I'd stay away from it.

#6. Can't tell about the radiator. Appears to be maintained. Records would help there. Worth a look. Here's the brochure: http://fleetwoodrv.com/frvlibrary/do.../2000_di_f.pdf

Hope that helps.

R U an RV Mutant too?

R U RV Mutants on the jazz or what?
Y'all are in rare form fer shure! 👍👏✌️
Note1 to self: You are RVM1. Why dont you have any temps?
Note 2 to self: Steve does a nifty self-ask and answer routine? When he does a stand-up act, have your temps get you front row seats.
Note 3 to self: Tim had deer (not venison?) chili in SC. Have my new temps proof read all of Tims posts.
Note 4 to self: "I'm am convinced that this thread has been good for some us... better for others" Steve said. Well, this is true, and this thread exists and functions BECAUSE of RVM2 and the caring RVMs.
Note 5 to self: you dont need temps, Dave.

BTW had some great Deer Chili tonight! Cool night here in SC.

Steve found that post via the genius of the far underpaid temps that can cross reference when you will bag your next venison. It is truly beyond any of us. Possibly beyond infinity!
Cool night here in AZ.

Mel - in case you missed my post about Heath and Alyssa and, their quest - and 1 post joining us here as RVMS - These two 23 year old newlyweds are fun to read and follow.

This particular link from Heath is timely.. http://www.heathpadgett.com/happines...entional-life/

And Alyssa is an inspiring writer too... guess who else had a refrigerator problem Barb...
http://alyssapadgett.com/september-adversity-blessings/

These two are busy - and I get an email now and again when Heath plays ketchup on his email...

Just a reminder these two kids are out there too...

He's trying to dig himself out of a hole. He's the one that stuck Di with SFM, or was it FSM. I think the latter and Di changed it around to SFM. I'm not going back to find the posts. My memory is good.

Steve said this, then Steve added this where upon Steve answered with this. Lol

Love you brother, your one of a kind, well actually both of you!
There are so many little men running around in his head that he never knows which one is going to pop up and empty it's mouth.
