YES!
I bought it. Will pick it up in a week or two after I close on my house sale.
This is the only actual photo I have of it.




This is not it, but identical paint and all

Man... that's beautiful! And it already has the full body paint?

For the price you mentioned you were going to pay, I am not sure what you were worried about. That rig is a keeper!

FWIW, I paid 35K for my 2004 a year ago, from a private owner, with 22K miles and faded and peeling decals. I then had to pay a few thousand to get the decals removed and painted back on. I am still way ahead.

For the sake of comparisons, here's mine... (after the decals were removed and stripes painted on)

Maurice, thanks.
Love how yours turned out. I don't mind the colors of mine so much, but would not have been at the top of the list in my choice. I will say that the full body paint on it is in great shape though. Not sure why they had to put so many "Intruders" on it though.

Super excited here. Hey, maybe you can tell me what the length of the mattress is as I keep forgetting to measure it (as it's not here yet) Wondering if my Queen from my home will fit.

Well, just went through the satchel full of info that came with this Damon from factory. Ummm.... I heard it was pretty generic, but this is pitiful. LOL.
Will be spending the first month of owning this thing just getting to know it's workings.
I can not wait..

Not sure I understand the question.
It was a 2000 Airstream Land Yacht, loaded.
Most all HMs that I was looking at no matter gas or DP were about $10K more then this one, unless they were in crap shape.

I like the 373 floor plans.

The 373 layout was the thing that swayed me over a DP that I was also considering at the same time. The seating area in the back is something I had never seen before.

I will measure my bed tomorrow.

That paint job looks great. Just get yourself a buffer, wax it, and keep it up. You don't need to do the whole thing at once. Just every now and then, do a side. If you try to do it all at once, then you'll never wax it again.

It was the master suite that really sold me on this floor plan also. It was when I went to look at it the second time and opened the rear window shades, .. that was nice.

I'm still in the looking stages but I'm leaning toward a 373W for the reason of the rear sitting area. Very nice, and a quiet place to sit and read. DW and I also don't always like the same TV stations. Are there any other main floor plan options within the 373W? The Winn. Adventurer 37B has a similar layout and the Winn. 38R is another nice model. I know this is an Intruder thread but any opinions would be appreciated. Any particular year 05, 06, 07 more favorable?
