Now own a Class A, B+ AND C - A RV Royal Flush

Nuts? Glutton for punishment? Ridiculously stupid? All of the above?

Put a deposit on a 2017 Winnebago View yesterday taking advantage of aggressive end-of-the-year pricing. With a 2008 Winnebago Tour Class A and a 2002 R-Vision B+, this rounds out our RV stable with a Class C.

I'll be driving the B+ down to the Keys next week to clean it up a little (in perfect mechanical condition with only about 45k miles) and sell it down there where there's more of a winter market. With the Tour being under water with the loan and still seeing need as the grandchildren increase in number, we plan on keeping that and use the new View as a taxi between house in FL and grandchildren in NJ and CA.

View is being built and should be ready some time in January. After doing an extensive search along the east coast, I bought it from Lichtsinn's in Iowa. They were absolutely fabulous to deal with, very responsive, very detail oriented, very knowledgeable, and were willing to beat the best price I got elsewhere. Seems Camping World has taken over all the other dealerships. Although CW had some aggressive pricing, I found that the salesmen where not responsive and did not know their product. I was reluctantly going to buy from CW Ocala as they had a perfect model on the lot, but Nicole from Lichtsinns came through by finding a View that was on the assembly line that I could customize and buy.

So I'll have to get myself from sunny FL to snowy Iowa in a few weeks but the results will be worth it!

Let the adventures continue!

Tom sounds like you set yourself up for a lot of maintanence. It will be interesting to see if you start leaving 1 of the rigs out due to you like driving one over to other. Safe travels. Regards

Don't bet a lot of money on that Royal Flush cause some jerk ( like me ) will quickly point out you actually only have a pair of C's and an A. But it's still a good story!
