Surveyor 295 for Christmas

Yay, I finally took the big step and made the offer on the 295. Pick it up on Wednesday. Nice Christmas present for me.

I originally was planning on going to the U.S. to get it, but after shopping around Alberta and Sask, I found that it was only less than $1000 difference than if I bought from Ohio. By the time I had them deliver to Edmonton it would have added another $3000 to the price of $19,000.
When I called around Alberta I had prices from $21,700 - $26,000 (the local shop being the most expensive).

The local shop said that they would match any Canadian price as they were slow and trying to stay competitive.

Anyway just want to tell people in Canada to call around and dont take the 1st price that a shop gives you, as they always have room to move.

Anyway looking foward to the upcoming camping many more sleeps? Well after the 10" of snow, too many sleeps.

That is one of our favorite floorplans. $20K CAD sounds like a nice price and you get the support of a local dealer. Smart.

What are you towing with?

Picked it up yesterday, roads were a little slick but got it to the farm where it will hide in the snow for a couple more months.

Here are some pictures.
