Almost there

Picked up this one owner '01 Newmar Mountain Aire 4095 last week with 21k miles and a new set of Michelins. Always stored in a carport. Heck, the gas range has never been used. Going to the local Spartan dealer next week for a full inspection and service. Only thing not working is the HWH hydraulic levelers. Batteries are suspect.

Came with a Blue Ox towbar...will be installing the base plate, Air Force One braking system and Remco driveshaft disconnect myself on my '03 Yukon 2WD with only 75k miles. Plan on hitting the road full time in June, after renting the house and putting all the belongings and toys in storage. I plan on working as a part-time catastrophe insurance adjuster, whenever and wherever deployed. If not, well...plenty of time to just relax and see all of north America.

Talk about threading the needle last Thursday night after a 270 mile drive...the boat slab and opening in a concrete wall (place for storing my 24' boat the last 23 years...just sold) were just a wee bit tight.

See y'all in the comics.

Very nice. I hope that you spend many miles in it, and have lots of smiles with it.

Great looking rig.

Have fun,

My website describes the conversion of my Dodge B-250 van into a small RV. I deal with a lot of woodworking, but hope to be quite specific on solar as well.

Thanks to all. We are looking forward to full-time RVing, for as long as we can. It has been a long road to get in the position to do this.
