Obvious answer ... the Mother' Day cards were on a clearance sale.

Hi Mel! Hope you two are doing well. How many more times will you put the publication out before turning out the lights...

Edit... and thanks for thinking of us who survived the loss of a child or children.

Dennis, I think you should scan the card and post it here so we know what you are talking about. Well, if it is postable - I forgot. Oops!

Well I guess I must be an RV Mutant. I bought only what I could afford so there would be no payment. For my budget that meant getting an 18-year-old Class C that had leak problems up front, but otherwise was in great shape. Luckily the one owner had parked it in his drive and used it as his man cave so it was not left to languish unused in a storage facility but it was right outside so he could fire it up and work on it.

I've put about 10K miles on it just the way it was, using it without the benefit of checking out all systems. I still have not used the shower or the gas stove. The first time I took it out I ran all the propane out of the furnace and then plugged in a little ceramic heater. Had never tested the water lines so I just carried gallon water from home for flushing and bottled water for cooking. For a bath I used hot water (thank you, Cracker Barrel) in a 2-gallon spigoted Igloo poured as needed into a tub. Use your imagination. That's the way they did it in the good old days and I felt clean and refreshed, so that's what matters.

I've never had a single engine, transmission, or chassis problem and she has gotten me everywhere I've needed to go. Even made a few 3-point turns when taking the wrong road without any issues.

Right now she is at a friend's barn having the front cab-over leak issue addressed by a very experienced woodworker. He is also going to check the gas lines, plumbing, and service the generator, and when that's done I'll be going up there to get her. I'll get a full tutorial on how to use the systems for the first time. I love my little Class C 24-footer already, and it will be awesome to have use of all the other systems.

I traveled 10K worry-free miles without the use of all the "bells and whistles" of an almost 20-year-old motorhome and I am sure there are plenty of people who would find this rather primitive. But it works fine for me.

Tellya what: you sound pretty mutated to me! However, there are some hoops to leap through and more confessions to make in order to gain the coveted next mutant number. Someone officiou...I mean, official will undoubtedly show up in the morning to attend to such details.

In the meantime, if you go waa-aa-aay back to the first few posts in this thread, you'll be ready to take the test when the time comes. Be prepared, says I. You'll need all your wits about you!

Meantime, it's good to see a Georgia peach turn up. We need us one a them!

Cheers!
Sue aka #36

PS: Some of us remember "primitive". Some fondly, others maybe not so much. 😱
