Now every nook and cranny has been check two or ten times. Every drawer, every cabinet, under sofa and recliners for stray objects, dust mopped out and locked down.

She's ready to go to her new, and lucky, owners. She served us so well.

Now it's just a count down...2.5 days to go.

Oh, and I discovered I had *WAY* too many pots and pans in there! sheeesh

Glad it worked out & you had time to go through some of the stuff like the extra pots & pans. Sometimes more work ends up being less work by the time it's all over with.

If you don't mind please be sure to share some pictures.

Like "radio" said, never do things in a hurry. You won't like it when you missed something (with that distance).

Got any updates with your new 5er?

we did it at home. Put it all in totes and boxes. Time to sort things out. No rush to organize things the way you want in the new TT

LOL, I took all the remotes and laid them aside for DH to sort through (there was also the satellite remote).

I do not do electronics well. If the power goes out here every thing flashes 12:00 until he gets home.

moving day

Here's Sweet Wife moving into the trailer when we took delivery in July 2008. We drove from Atlanta to RVWhosalers in Ohio and took all the stuff I had been collecting for 18 months while we shopped for a camper.

It was some degree of trouble but when the dust settled we camped for a week on the way back home. Don't know if I would do that again but it was fun at the time.

We ordered our unit from RV direct and picked it up in Orlando Fl. We live south of Ft Worth Texas, a 1200 mi trip. Our previous 5th wheel was sold a couple of months prior to our trip for the new camper, everything was stacked in the garage. We loaded a U-Haul trailer with what we thought we would need and headed for Orlando. After the PDI we signed papers, pulled the U-Haul next to our new 5th wheel and unloaded and reloaded stacking things anyplace they would fit. Took the U-Haul to there lot and went and hooked up to our new camper. Now four days in our new camper we have things pretty much under control. We will spend a few weeks here in Florida and camp our way back to Texas in the deep south adding another week or two to our trip.

Would we do it again, maybe. My wife did tell me "no more new campers" Heard that before. We do love our new camper and so far can't find a thing to be concerned about.

One thing I had to admit to when unpacking the TT is that I/we never did get actually organized. The pantry was stacked willy nilly. Various and sundry items were stuck in overhead storage just wherever I was closest when I need to put it away.

This time I'm *organizing* to where I know where each thing is as I need it.

Yeah, "let's go look at new RVs, just look, to kill time, yanno?" will be a forbidden phrase for a LONG time after this!

We finally get to pick up our 365SAQB (first 5er) next Saturday. Mostly do to inability to wait we have already emptied the TT of everything we didn't need to tow it 3 miles to the dealer. Also as others have said we wanted to have time to sort through 3 years of collecting and determine what we have/need/use. Oddly enough there was only a small garbage bag of stuff not going to new 5er
