I was an accounting major in college, and your description below is reminding me of the nightmare of "Process Cost Accounting." For each line you show below, I'm thinking, "Debit A, Credit B," then, "Debit B, Credit C," then "Debit C, Credit D...." Oh yeah then you have to apply the overhead in a percentage carefully calculated...... And at year end you have to calculate if overhead was underapplied or over applied....... YAAAACCCKKKKK!!!!!!

Glad I was a Federal Auditor. Didn't have to DO the accounting, just audit it. HEE HEE HEE!

Your unit is in the schedule (unless there is another Carozzoni out there ordering a 2650.)

Looks like a couple more weeks before it comes offline unfortunately.

On the bright side, it will be a 2014.
I wonder if that 2650S did come off the line this week....

Thanks! Got an aluminum (1,300 lb) trailer for the Mitsubishi Evo X on order. Down to 280 calendar days left to retire. Practice this year, for many trips next year.

Oh, THAT would be fun. Are Sunseekers made in Elkhart? What is the process for joining a tour?

Thank you.

914 CR 1 is the mailing address. Most GPS devices can't seem to find it, so I always give my dealers the attached map.
