Decided on a date to pick up the 2016 Berk 38A

I have been chomping at the bit to get it. At least now the date is SET

We are thinking April 4th will be the pick up date at Terry Town in Grand Rapids. The plan then would be to camp Mon thru Sat at Hidden Ridge RV Resort to test it out and shake it down. Close enough to get anything fixed that goes wrong. Both the DW and I can and will work from the Campground. Anyone know if Hidden Ridge has a good reliable WiFi system?

Still have the 2014 SunSeeker 3010DS for sale (see the classified for your friends) Getting a few nibbles. Keeping fingers crossed on the last couple.

Nothing short of a Blizzard will keep me from this date!!

Look forward to seeing you guys out on the trail.

Congrats. We will miss you at HR. We will not be there until around the 15th. The Wifi at HR is ok especially at that time. The park will be empty for the most part unless the weather is warm. Doubtful for Michigan early April. They just upgraded the system last year.
I do suggest bringing a couple of electric space heaters with you if are driving. It will get cold there as you know being from GB. If you don't have one or are flying into GR I have one in my shed on lot 181. You are welcome to use it. The shed is not locked.
Have a great time and enjoy the new Berkshire.

Congratulations on the 38A. We got ours last October and love it. Only a couple issues. The led lights. Have had to replace 7 so far. The fridge has quit twice. The hot water heater recall. Other than that it is everything we hoped it would be.
