Congrats on the new Rainbow Rider, it looks great.

Our newly purchased 2004 Tiffin Allegro Bus 40QDP! We are pinching ourselves! Four slides. Kate's afraid she'll get lost in all the space.

For starters, II'm excited about the 400hp turbo diesel, the integrated vacuum cleaner, the real hardwood floor in living room, the roll-up 50 amp cord, and ... AN ENTRY DOOR THAT WORKS LIKE A DREAM! (Dead Horse folks know what I'm talking about.)

We pick it up in a couple of weeks. Bought it at Always RV in Mesa and we HIGHLY recommend those folks. We are going to let them sell Murphy for us. Steve Flagg can tell you about his buddy Dave who does PDIs... and is the shop manager at Always. Teriffic guy. Honest as they come. Will do you right.

Ok, pics coming ....

FANTASTIC Pictures!!! Love your new ride...

We know you will enjoy the Journey for many years in Mutant Style..

Hey, maybe Miya will give free rides to Sena. (Not going to happen, huh?)

We are high, roads were wet, no flooding. It was nothing more than a little rain storm coming through in this area. Back yard had standing water but that happens all the time. Jeannie, Dave and Bob are all fine.

I don't know of any others in the area.

Di, healing ommmmms sent to you! I had a go 'round with a boot just like that when my right Achilles was trying to pull loose. Hang in there! You're a tough cookie, so I know you will.

Smile..... Welcome Kate.... My my you are gonna be getting your own IRV2 name before long..... So many infirmative threads as well as this here fun one...

Yep Mel.... So far sticking to it... And it even after a few nights it had quit hurting.... So that makes me even more determined....

Am really truly happy for you on your new coach... You will be amazed at how much difference 4 slides make...
You will still have issues, those never go away, but hopefully they will not be as frequent....

Cant wait to see it and you two as well.....

I have been biting my tongue a few days now with the secrets of the Second Ever Mel and Kate Hunt for a Rainbow Rider. Oh the humanity!

As Mel mentioned, in our hunt I came across Dave Mattson in the Phoenix area who performs PDI's. I never employed his services but got to know him through conversations, emails and texts. Seemed like a great guy. Then - I referred him 3 or 4 times to folks on iRV2 and all had very high praise for him and his service. As it turns out, he is running the service department at the place Mel and Kate were shopping! They found him to be honest and straight shooting - like the others had noted. If you need a PDI in the Phoenix / Mesa area, his cell phone # is 480-510-6646.

I'm so proud of Mel and Kate for their self-actualization and making their dream come true their way! It doesn't get any better than that! Well done ladies! Well done.

We're here for another week and hope to get down to Mesa to see the currently unamed (as far as I know) new Rainbow Rider. She's a beauty in pics and can't wait to see her face to face.

Have a great day mutants!

Lol. Well, Murphy is just too small to live in FT, with only one slide. (Legally changed the old coach's name from "Bow" to "Murphy" ... The Poobah presided.) We needed the extra 3 feet of length and the 4 slides that the new one gives us.

We left the dealer after handing over $$ and looked at each other wide-eyed and said, "We're all in now!"

We are working on a name for the new one. It'll come .....
