The three deer are about 60 or so feet from my lawn chair. Tim the area is crawling with them. If you come this way maybe we can entice Les into providing Rattler for some true wild meat dining.

Rattler, taste like chicken, loaded with bones!

Done that!

Mel.... I drive our 38'dp, not often, but I can... I have not backed it yet, but i used to pull a ski boat behind a bronco, and have driven the small school buses, so i know i can if i want to...... Our toad is a 2 door jeep wrangler which i do hook up on my own...

Will look at your picks in a few, but my must haves were a w/d first...
And a table with real chairs, not a booth.... 2nd (it functions as my desk)

Wish we had a split bathroom, but thats not a big deal, we do not...
Our rv functions without the slide out, just not as much dog run room... 2 westies... Just have to climb over the bed to get to closet...
I do not have a big frig, its ok i cook most things from scratch.... Rather have the pantry.

No matter how much you look online, you will know when you are in it.... Like shoes..

[QUOTE=MPH;2251700]Ok, here's where we stand at this point in time:
#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

Other than the carpet I think this is one to look at for sure. Due diligence.

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?

The W/D depends on if you want to babysit laundry in a laundromat. It appears to be maintained. Mechanically, with 100305 mi, I would wonder about the steering and suspension components. Service records might help there. Also the electrical says 50A, not sure if it will work on 30A which is the norm in some older NP CGs. Also says Onan Error. I'd look really close at the genny to see if it works. Could be expensive to repair. Not much about battery or tire condition. Check the date codes on the tires for sure. I wouldn't put it on the top of my list but it's worth a look.

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

Appears to be maintained. Lots of miles so I would again be concerned about the service records and the condition of the steering and suspension components maintenance items. It appears to have a rear radiator which requires periodic cleaning. There are pluses satelite dish and wiring, w/d combo. Worth a lok and a test drive. Due diligence.

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

Sent you a response on your PM on this one. In addition I like it because it's an 8.3L vs the others apear to be 5.9L Cummins.

I like asking the wait person in a restaurant if they have frog legs. When they reply yes I ask them to hop back to the kitchen and get me a hamburger.

Ooh! Did I say that?
