Just found out this morning that there's a contract on #2 (Newmar Dutchstar). Darn. (Replacing carpet is not a deal-breaker for us. We'll put new floors in if need be.)

#3 is still available (probably because there's no slide) and I'll look at it this weekend. (Again, replacing carpet, not a big deal.) Kate seems to think that since we live outdoors so much, not having a slide wouldn't break her heart. I'm not so sure ....

#4 and #5 are off the list.

#6 we might consider, depending on the extent of the remodeling we'd want to do. I would lose the mirrors. We don't want a rolling casino. If it is still available, I'll drive to AZ next weekend and take a look. We kinda like the floor plan. Here's the link to it: http://www.rvtrader.com/listing/2000-Fleetwood-37-DISCOVERY-112445645

Here are some new listings that I'd love to get opinions on:

http://www.pplmotorhomes.com/diesel/2001-Landau-26781.htm No W/D or W/D connections. How important would you guys rate having a W/D on board?

http://www.pplmotorhomes.com/diesel/2000-Discovery-By-Fleetwood-27811.htm

Maybe my new favorite: 2001 Marlin By National RV 370 for Sale - D717 - PPL Motor Homes

There's still Alvarado ....
That's a shame that #2 has a contract. But maybe I'm partial to Newmars.

Hear-hear!
My 3 inch Garmin NuVi from 2008 is still going strong and up-to-date, and I aint seen any low bridges and such. Must be cuz trucks are on the road. 😉
I dont need waypoints! That is like the impulse buy shelf in a grocery. And too much clutter on the screen, me thinks. Just sayin....

And Bob may enjoy it as well. We also watch these guys fly off the mountain from the porch as well.

Update
Sue from Drifters called - and
The word is this - they are trying to get us grouped together - but it will be impossible - the snowbirds are starting to arrive and they are running out of spaces - if you are on the fence - time to get off... lol...

All sites have picnic tables but they are heavy... they will work with us to put some thing together or we can gather at the largest site - whoever has that - and bring our chairs and side tables etc there. We will work it out. I am excited... !!

I know ... I am so sad! It had close to everything we wanted and looked pretty well-cared for. Would've replaced carpet and anything else that was worn.

Hopefully, there'll be another one somewhere soon.

Ok, I left that out. We've got traffic with lifetime updates, too. Another nice thing to have, for sure ... especially for DW, since she is a self-proclaimed "directionally challenged" person and HATES to drive in heavy, congested traffic.

Steve, does Annie drive Bonita very often? If so, how long did it take her to master it? Can she back it into any space? Kate can learn, I know. Might help her to know how many other DWs out there can handle a big DP!

First down load the logos from a few pages back or I can PM them to you. Then if you want it under your handle under the left side then go to "user CP" and scroll down to "Edit Avatar" then upload the one you want, think you have to click the box to reset avatar and the scroll down to the bottom and click save.

Annie has not yet - but she will this winter. Fear not - open eyes and look at truckers these days 1/2 are women if not more. Look at Lisa on Ice Road Truckers - and School and City Bus drivers. Driving these things is not a sexist activity believe me Annie is about a buck twenty and she will drive it.. it's just been a timing thing. Lol

Annie is smart - she know if she ever wants to leave me - running off in Bonita is the better bargain. The rear CRV seat folds down - but it's no Sleep Number bed...
