Happy Day - just sent off a deposit on a 2013 Excel Limited!!!

My wife and I have been researching new RVs for over 2 years and today was the day we finally mailed off our deposit. Delivery is expected in late Feb. A lot of thanks go out to folks on this forum for their helpful posts and the responses I got to my questions. It also meant a lot to be able to talk face-to-face with Bryan & Curtis of PI when they were in town for the ABQ RV shows. So after much research and discussion, we ordered a Limited 34IKE from Doug's RVs in Duncan, OK. Thanks Doug for the unbeatable price!

Options selected:
Residential fridge
MCD manual shades
French bedroom door
Central vacuum
Ducted 2nd A/C
Pivot EZ sewer hose
Disc brakes
17.5' wheels/tires
Fully auto leveling system
Glide ride pin box
Keyless entry
Laminate flooring in bedroom, livingroom & hallway
Electric fireplace
Sofa caddy
2" rear hitch
Disc brake compatibility box
Enclosed walk-through bathroom

Can't wait!!!!

Doc,

Don't worry, I get to the "back of the park" when I go on my healthy exercise walks to look for a happy hour in progress! Some of the best ones are in the seediest parts of the park!!! I just love the "entry folks people".......that way I don't have put on my snob face!!! Git R Dun! rockin's up to it again.

Congratulations, Gordon and Lisa. I always park on the row with the million $ motorhomes just to add some eye candy.
