Hello from South Central PA

Hello and glad to be a part of the FR Forum. After looking at class A motor homes for years, we decided to finally take the plunge and trade our 2004 Sunseeker in on a 2016 Georgetown 369XL. (Sometimes those guys at the Hershey PA RV show make an offer you can't refuse.)

Our actual delivery date was Dec 1. Even though the anticaption was sometimes unbearable, we were perfectly fine finishing last season up with the old MH. Besides, when something went wrong, it was fun to tell our friends "Well it is time to trade this %$#@ thing in for a new one."

After picking up the new coach, the first thing we did was put on the Progressive EMS before pluging into our seasonal site. Next we started our list of (what I call) minor issues to be addressed. I suppose if we dug deep enough, we could have compiled a longer list, but I am tolerant of some cosmetic flaws. In the mean time, we received and paid our increased insurance bill. In addition, we made our first of many bank payments. We decided to take the MH to the shop today to address our short list. There is no use in having it set around all winter collecting snow (or rain) when we could be having it fixed and ready for the new season.

So in summary, we have done everything we campers do to our homes such as pay bills, perform preventive maintenance, and visit the repair shop, except actually sleep in it. We are so looking forward to spring so we can finally get to experience all the fun things camping should be.

I will wait until Feb 2 to see what the old groundhog has in store for us this year. If he gives an unfavorable report, our first trip may very well be to Punxsutawney PA so me and Phil can have a few words.

Have a safe and happy camping year and we will see you on the road.
