Morning Everyone;
Day has dawned "sunny". Warming up quite nicely. Wind is coming up as well so it looks like the "ponies" will have a little more work in the way home. Been a great weekend so far.

Now I am off to help cook the Sunday morning breakfast. Then start packing up to head on home.

Have a great day.

This is the 3rd one I have been too, and the family treats me very well! It is fun to see all of the kids and how much they have grown over the past year! Everything here is going good, and I got my yearly letter from SS with a form to fill out, and mail back to them, so I will keep getting "my money"!!! I just love how they word it, and threaten to stop me from getting the money I paid into it all of those years, if I don't send this letter back! My friend that lives in Cambodia, did not receive his letter, and they stopped his checks, and it took him 2 months to get it sorted out! When you live overseas, it is a bit hard to jump in the car and visit the local SS office!!
Everyone have a great day! Rail!

I suspect the reason they do that is because of all the fraud. They want to make sure it is YOU that is getting paid not some scammer. Lot of that going on and since that system is going broke.....

So after lots of searching nationwide and a 2000 mile road trip checking them out what do I find in my own back yard (literally 10 min from me)? A 2004 Beaver Monterey.

Going over to look at it today. That vintage was produced by Monaco. Missing the TAG I wanted and only a 350 hp ISC. But for the right price I will take it and trade up later. Thoughts? PDF is the build sheet

Good Morning All,

Jay, that is a nice looking coach. If it is the floor plan you want then go for it. Looks like it is in good shape so maybe just coming to agreement on the price.

Beautiful day here. 90 yesterday and 76 today. Got to love this weather but anything is better than snow.

Next weekend is looking like a good camping weekend. Need to look and find a place close by so we have not much of a drive. Looking forward to camping.

Have a great one all, Lynne

Lynne,
Hang in there, retirement will be here before you know it. I am going to take an educated guess that you will have to replace the leaking leveling jack. From what I have heard from others, they are not rebuildable.
Lloyd,
I'm sure that you will find something to keep you occupied this afternoon, lol.
Rail,
That's one of the problems with the people running our country, they forget that the money from SS is ours and not theirs. They keep giving it away on disability and everything else except what it was meant for.
Jay,
Hopefully brother, a least give a shout when you are here, and we can talk on the cell.
Have a great day all,
Frank
Soooo I will be 61 EOM and have paid SS since my first job @ 16 besides a paperboy when younger, can't remember if I paid all those years or not. I am not sure why you think I can't collect on SSDI, I am became disabled 5 years ago. Trust me that I didn't want to go on SSDI I lost almost half on my wages going on SSDI. I would love to be able to work I loved my job and did it for 28 years. I would also love to be pain free but that won't happen either.
Please tell me what you would have done.
Oyea,
morning coffee is great this morning left overs from yesterday.
Going to put the 64 out by the hwy too see if I can sell it . That will be a sad day when she goes.
Started to wax the MH but only made it an hour. :banghead its going to be a long summer...

,
Tim

Nice coach Jay! 2 slides?

That is a quality unit, should be good to go if taken care of. The lower HP motors tend to have a longer life. So I wouldn't let that bother me.

Well Frank was right, I figured out today was the best day to install the lift in the front of the Jeep. Part of the bumper winch upgrade, the Jeep dropped from the weight of the bumper and the winch. Anyway, it is done and the Jeep is level again.

95* here, I am done for the day. Came in here to the a/c.

Wow another rolling palace , NICE !

So many of you people have those huge luxury rigs !

Mine is a little rolling turd compared to them ....
(that's not copyrighted by the movie RV , I said little !)

BUT , I can park (and drive) a gazillion places you CAN'T !
AND , It's a waste of time to wax mine .

BUT , you probably all get better fuel mileage than me (6mpg)
AND , just one of your storage compartments equal ALL of mine

BUT , I am boondocking fulltime on the coast of Maine.
SO , I'm going to get 2 lobsters and go eat them in my rolling turd.

I win ! (I know , not really but let me think so OK ?)

Popeye - trying to say something witty here so here goes: WHO CARES! I certainly don't. I know some people who care about stuff like that but not well and not for long.

I believe it is the person and not their rig I chum with. We are all equal around the campfire IMO.

Popeye,

We love your heart and witty mind, we don't care what rig you drive. Seriously, the people here are not like that. Jay is looking for something comfortable and that is comfortable for him and he can afford it. Mine is paid for, how about yours?

There are people on here who have some real expensive rigs and we all see them. I just decided to not replace my carpet because the cost was ridiculous. I would rather spend that money on gas and CG fees then put in the new carpet. $4,000. No way!

So my friend, I don't care what you drive, turd or not, I just enjoy talking with you and I sure hope we meet one day. I hope to meet all of you.

Lynne

Good morning, Everyone! Coffee is very good today!
Jay, the Beaver's of that age are very well made coach's! They are the same as a Monaco, just a different badge! It is optioned nice, and has everything but the tag! Make sure you weigh it full of fuel and half full of water, just to see where it comes in at! And make sure all the systems are working as they should! The most important is the Hydro Hot, (same as the Aqua Hot?) as they are expensive to fix! Good Luck! And for the letter from SS, and the fraud thing, you are probably right!
Everyone, Have a great Day! Rail!

Well that rolling palace was pretty cheap. Only 69K asking price. I went to see it and drive it but.... Another couple was there making an offer. Or I should say paying full boat. I was only going to make a $60K cash offer good today only.

Too bad for them though. The previous owners were doctors that liked to go skiing and the NEVER washed the underside after being on those roads. Can you say RUSTY? After seeing that I wouldnt give them 20K for it.

As for "Floor Plan I Like" darn hard to find. I want the galley up front and they have never made a lot of those.

Going to see an older Magma tomorrow, 2hr drive away. Private sale. Pix look good and they are not skiers.

If that doesnt work out I may just go buy the Bounder 36J down the street and say the heck with it, redo the inside myself (its nice, just dated) and trade up later. SMH
