Here we are in our overnight camping spot in Elkhart, Indiana this morning. Did you guess right about the purpose of our sudden shopping trip? Or did you skip the boring post full of videos and not read to the end? (It's ok if you did, I do it myself on topics that don't interest me!)
On Friday we drove to Tiara RV to try to make a last minute deal before our trip to the Smokies. The trip paid off and we now proudly own the RV that we originally wanted.
|Tiara's white truck, our new Mountaineer|
It's a 2010 Montana Mountaineer 324RLQ, newer and prettier than the Laredo we will leave behind today. We are definitely happy campers. Our reasoning was now that we had a truck that could handle more weight, what were we waiting for? As the seasoned RV'ers know, now is the time to buy in the Midwest, prices are great to get that inventory moving before winter sets in. By the way, they have great prices and friendly service here at Tiara RV.
Besides being newer and prettier, the one thing I really wanted this time was a fully separate bath. I hate brushing my teeth and ironing my hair while Wayne is still sleeping with that old sink-in-the-bedroom setup.
We'll be putting our leather recliners inside the new one, but here's a quick pre-move preview of the living area.
I'm hoping we can find a camping spot by Starved Rock State Park in Illinois tonight, more news tomorrow!
