Greetings From PA (for now)

Greetings all,

Newbies from NW Pennsylvania here. Funny, just read ahma's post and sounded a lot like I am going to write.

My wife and I had plans to rent an motorhome and go to Colorado for a planned event. Something in me just gaged at spending that much on a rental. Well, long story short, my wife talked to her parents neighbors about their Winnebago, they were willing to sell, we were ready to buy. We know the previous 2 owners which helped ease the fears.

Changed the title at 4:30 on Thursday, home by 6:30. Saturday at 9:30 hit the road for Colorado! spent 2 nights at my stepson's in Michigan and "read the manuals" and learned the systems!

Hit the road Monday; Death wobble in I-80 in Indiana...Wife on her FB RV group to figure out what is up....

We had problems along the way but after 3 weeks, we were hooked....

Spent September installing new sway bar bushings; front end alignment and tires; Bilsteins on the way. Replaced the carpet with laminate in the BR and took the TV's out.

Traveled to the Outer Banks to camp at the beach for a few was hard coming home!

So, we will be out here more and I'll get the profile up to date.

So hi from Tracey and Joe in Meadville!
