|From Our New MOTORHOME|
We looked it over with a fine tooth comb and took it out on a long test drive. It was every bit as clean as we were told it was. It has 54,000 miles on it and it is CLEAN. It really didn't need any further cleaning but they insisted that they wanted to put a crew on it and give it a good going over. Although the owners records showed that it had been totally serviced with new oil and filters, etc. in March, they wanted to do it all again before they put it out. "Just so we will both know FOR SURE", the sales mgr told me.
When the dealership closed that evening, we were the PROUD owners. We knew this is what we had been waiting for! Praise the Lord. This is what He had for us. Well worth the wait. We went back to the Motel that night so excited that neither of us slept a wink. It was understood that they would put a full crew on it early the next morning and we could stay in it that night and over the weekend. That would give us a chance to get familiar with everything and check out any items that needed correcting before we hit the road. I was MORE than ready to get out of the Motel's!
A couple days ago, while we were waiting for this Coach to arrive, we toured the Foretravel Factory which is right across the road from this dealership. Let me tell you, I was mighty impressed with the way they construct thier units. They don't push them out very fast and spend a lot of time and care paying attention to the details. The craftmanship is superb, second to nothing I have ever seen. I thought Teton was the best and I spent a lot of time watching them being built but Foretravel's work is superior to what Tetons was. "WAS", is the BIG word there. Foretravel is still in business, both building and repairing, and is centrally located. I have several friends that have Foretravels and love them.
Foretravels slideouts are unique and have a feature that I didn't know even existed. All of their slideouts have a rubber bladder around them that fills with air and TOTALLY seals all the way around when it's in or out. The bladder is inside so it's not exposed to any sunlight or elements for deterioration and makes an extremely tight seal to keep out wind, dirt, dust, water, etc.
Anyhow to make a long story a little shorter, here are a few of the options our new home has that we like:
450 hp Cummins engine
Tag Axle and nearly new tires all around.
Full body paint job and double clear coat in superb condition.
Aqua Hot water and heat.
Total "AIR"leveling syatem. No jacks or levelers ever touch the ground.
Ms Pat loves the floor plan and the quality fixtures and conveniences throughout.
Plus many other things............You should be able to click on the link below the picture at the top and go to our Album for a look at the inside and of course a picture of Ms Megabyte2 in her new home....
It was a GREAT WEEK!!!!
Thanks for stopping by. We will be here until they get everything in "ship shape" and to our satisfaction and then we will head on back home to Custer. It could be the middle of the week or longer if necessary. We are in no rush as we want to get everything done now and not rush things. Besides these are great people. They make us feel right at home and the wifi is GREAT. And by the way, our sales person is Mel Cordray. He is fine young, family man and is taking great care of us.
God Bless you all. We continue to be thankful for all our Father has done for us with his blessings.
