One thing about being a full time RVer is you have to be flexible and roll with the punches :-).
We called our company Monday morning and they had nothing for us so we were told we could hang out in Pennsylvania or head back to Indiana. They said it could only be a few days before they would need us again so we decided to take the chance and head back home to see Rudee's parents.
We got on the road pretty late in the day since the company is in California and on Pacific time. We drove to Columbus Ohio and spent the night in a small campground. The next morning we started out a little earlier because we wanted to make a stop. We have been considering a change in our travel style and found a motor home we thought might fit the bill in Richmond Indiana.
We stopped there shortly before noon and a salesman showed us the motor home we "thought" we wanted as well as several others. We ended up spending the entire day at the dealership looking at several units before eventually making a deal. Next is the financing which has proven to be quite an ordeal. Between being a full timer and having our jobs only a short time has created a few obstacles. We finally went to "our" bank where they have known us for years and arranged the financing.
We traded both the semi truck and 5th wheel for our new home:
it is a 2002 Winnebago Journey 36' Diesel Pusher with 2 slides. The prior owners took great care of it and we could not find any issues with it at all. The dealership is detailing the interior and doing a final check of all the systems. We will be doing the walk through on Saturday morning and then transferring all of our "stuff" from the Montana and Freightliner into the Motor home. They do have camping facilities at the dealership and we are spending the night here so we can get an early start in the morning.
We took the Harley to our buddy, Grumpy's, shop for winter storage. Our plan is to purchase and install a lift onto the rear of the motor home by next spring for the bike.
I'll keep you posted.
