OK, review posted. It's more like a novel but I had a lot of praise to share.

Oh dear heavens DXSM! And there I was out there the other day with two perfectly good feet, complaining about how many trips up and down those steps I was making while unloading.

Dunno how you did it! With two good feet I reached the point I'd stack boxes just inside the door, stand on the ground outside and drag 'em out into one of those black rubbery plastic type garden wagons and pull it out to DH's shop to stage it all in there.

Now I get to do all that in reverse over the next four days. Whew, here's hoping for warm weather tomorrow, Tuesday and Wednesday. Getting a left side brachial nerve ablation Monday, so with the Versed I'll be sleeping most of that day and will not be able to lift anything heavy Tuesday and Wednesday, so tomorrow's my best shot at getting the most done.

BTW, love that avatar of you and the kitty. Did you know that today is CATURDAY?

Weezer's cheeks hurt from all the grinning!

Look up the phrase "happy camper" and you'll find a pic of me!

I gleen from your excitement, you'll get most of the heavy stuff done tomorrow. You'll be too excited to stop. Tuesday and Wednesday you'll spend going "maybe this will be better over there or nope, don't like it there, over here is better". Then sit down, look around and say "yup, that's it"!

Anyway, have fun doing it your way.

When we transitioned from the TT to the 5er, we did it at Lazydays, in their lot, entry door to entry door. We took our time, using boxes that we had packed before arriving there. Then we recycled them for the other stuff. They offered to help - we declined because we wanted to do it OUR way. There. That my two cents worth.

(chuckle) When we hit the interstate headed West early this morning there were cross winds from hades goin' on and then the V-Lite started bouncing like a kid standing in a fire ant bed.

We couldn't figure out what the heck was going on, and then I finally got it...

She's EMPTY!

Amazing how much difference it made towing her without our "stuff" in there.

Yep, rracer, I just discovered museum putty. LOVE that stuff! I have small things used as accent pieces that I always have to put away/pack up before towing.

NOW I can find just the right place for each sentimental item and putty it down. No more unpacking and repacking with every trip. Yeah, we'll still pack away the adult beverage supplies. This 5er even has the perfect area to set up bar.

(I've tested it on non valuable things here at home for a couple of weeks. I much prefer the white putty over the crystal clear jell type...the white putty holds much better.)

we're MOVED IN! Just in time...did it during a light misting rain, with temps in the low 50's today. I even shucked off my rain jacket because I was sweating like crazy.

Now the rain has stopped, heavy winds are starting up, and temps are DROPPING like feathered fowl out of the sky on the first day of duck season in our neck of the woods.

She's plugged in to shore power, she's pink stuff winterized, the fireplace is going, there's an additional small ceramic heater going, and we're back inside our S&B abode and hunkered down.

Currently 41 degrees with a wind chill of 32 degrees. sheesh!

(I took lots of pics on the cell phone. Will try to get 'em loaded over to photobucket later on.)

I know you have already moved in, but here is my two cents. We have done it both ways. All at Lazy Days. It also depends how much storage you have. The Silverback we just purchased has less storage in the bedroom then the Fleetwood regal we had. This last time was a nightmare with dealing with lazy days that we didn't sign all the paperwork till 5:55 pm. We literally were sitting around all day while waiting for the new coach to be ours. So then when we " closed", it was rainy not to mention I am on crutches. We were so stressed out that me and my other half never argued like we did that night, which ended at 3am. Lazy days only let's you have one day to move and my hubby had to be back to work. My advice is, pack as much as you can ( the extra stuff) and leave behind. Then when you go pick up the new coach, box the stuff up,just like you are moving from your house. Then when you arrive home, take your time and think about where to put things. And take BREAKS! If we ever do this again, with or without Lazy days, we will do it this way. I feel you can't do everything in one day
