Buying a New Home

There's no doubt we could use a bigger motorhome.  But we like our Safari Class C so much ... it has served us well for 8 years, living in it, traveling, working ... It has 135,000 miles on it, and I'm afraid it looks like it.   We're Geeks, not home maintenance people!
Whenever we go to the big rallies, we always browse thru the RVs for sale, and we never have liked one better than ours - regardless of cost.

Till Now.

Here she is ... or should I say 'He' ??  It is kinda macho looking.


It's the floor plan that grabbed us.  Three distinct living areas, and the middle one just has a standalone table in it right now ... should be an easy place to put a custom-built desk/office.  And it still has the cab over bed area where Mom can stay when she travels with us.


The plan is to take possession on Monday - 4 days from now - we'll park door to door and transfer everything over.  It's wonderful .. and I'm going to be very sad to leave our current rig.  It's also going to be tough having monthly payments ... we've been without those since we sold our house!

Details:
2007 Gulfstream Endura 'Super C' Diesel
Chevy Kodiak Chassis
Floor Plan/Model 6362
36 Foot
11,000 miles
$80,000

We have a 37' Damon Challenger and the floorplan is very similar to yours with the distinct "rooms". We love it. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do ours.

It's a beauty! I can't wait to see how you're going to customize it for the "geeks."

Where did you get it at? We may be in the market for a new MH as well.

Bob, the kitties and I, are all very happy for you. Such fun to move into a new home. We had 125,000 miles on our old gas coach before we traded it in. Best move we ever made. You will enjoy your new rig, and we all wish you many, many years of happy & safe travels. Kiss Odie for me!

Looks like a great rig! Hope you are loving it as much in 100K miles.

Wow! What a great new RV for you! I've thought about replacing MsTioga, and just cannot sell her! MsTioga for me has the perfect floor plan. Besides, what would happen to my "Tioga-George" name without MsTioga?

Fantastic! Congrats Jim and Chris!! Looking forward to seeing how you customize the new rig. Cheers! ~Merri

Congrats Chris & Jim! While I'm sure it's hard to say goodbye to your old home, I'm sure you'll love all the new space and having a diesel. In Chicago right now, gas prices have now pushed up past diesel, so diesel isn't always more expensive..woo hoo!
