NEW to us Motorhome

We spent two days looking at new to us RV's at Lazy Days in Tampa, and we found one that was close to what we wanted. It was close enough we put a deposit on it and all we needed to do was work out the $$. Well this AM we didn't get the $$ worked out and we had be out of the RV Park because of a Rally they are having so we left and drove to Wauchula.

There was a 2006 Newmar Kountry Star model 3509 that we had seen on CraigsList a couple weeks ago and it was close to Wauchula so we e-mailed the couple to see if we could come and look at it. We drove the 20 miles and pulled up in front of it and I knew I was sold on it. BUT the boss had not looked inside and she had not said yes.

She looked around inside and I just watched, looking for an expression of approval or denial. I could tell she liked it, but did she like it enough? The 130 watt solar panel, and the little 15 watt trickle charger solar panel, along with the shiny brown outside had me sold. And when Heinz started showing me the storage underneath I had to hold my tongue because the BOSS hadn't said yea or nay yet.

As the four of us sat under the automatic awning I couldn't wait any longer and had to ask Marcia if this was something she could live in. When she answered and I saw her face I turned to Heinz and said you have just sold an RV.

There are a couple problems, or catches, one is they need it until Feb 1 because that is when they move into their new park model, and the second is it has a Canadian title. I really think the title will cause a few extra papers to be filled out, but don't see it as a major obstacle.

Here is a picture of it, I will post other pictures later tonight, but BINGO starts in a few minuets so until after bingo..............

Bingo was good to us tonight, I won once, and Marcia the bingo queen won three times. And the total winnings after deducting the cost to play was $25, yea, now I can eat lunch tomorrow.
Here are some pictures of the rig we are buying.
