When you find yours you will know!

Although YMMV.
Dennis I thought my wife was the only black belt in shopping.......misery loves company.

R U an RV Mutant too?

So, with gatherings in mind, Nola and I are making Dolmades (stuffed grape leaves). Yeah, Greek. (Toga party?) 😀👍👏✌️
If it turns out as good as it looks (simmering now), would there be any RVMs that might like this for an Hors d'oeuvre? Hmmmm?
It aint bacon for a change! 😉

Not sure what "bells and whistles" you're referring to, Barb. ???

I think the Discovery in Haslett is over-priced.

Thanks everyone!

Mel just for your info. We have a 2000 Holiday Rambler 40 ft Dp with 2 slides. It has run beautifully, the only thing to break was left front jack. 14 years old runs like new. They knew how to build them with quality, and the slides are almost silent. All our bells and whistles work. Tires will be $3000 tops, and if you like the floor plan a 15 year old Fleetwood or Monaco base will serve you well. We liked the two slides because it allowed for a big 6ft full closet in bedroom.

I paid more for 6 22.5's Michelin's with the FMCA discount - but what's a couple thousand amongst friends...

And amortized across the 7 +/- year life... it's peanuts. Tires are what's tween you and the road. Ya can't substitute marshmallows for tires. Gotta have - if not now - sooner or later and I feel better knowing exactly where these tires have gone... I really had no idea on where the Good Year GY70s she came with had been. They were '07 - original tires and low miles. Looked fine and some would still be riding on em now.

Keep things in perspective is the key I guess. Yes - tires are expensive - just work the numbers. You'll be fine.

I wonder who will get the dubious honour of being the recipient of the first Canuck Mutant Mugs.
