Brand NEW to the forum and Brand New Owner

I have very excited to be posting here and excited to be the owner of a (new to me) motorhome.

I have been wanting to own an RV for quite some time and had reservations about pulling the trigger. Decided to dip my toe and start with an older, much cheaper model to ensure I was up for the challenge and would make good use of such an investment.

For those of you in the market for a reasonably priced, used motorhome, it is a seller's market and they have been going fast- barely enough time to schedule a viewing and *poof* it is sold.

My fiancée and I were able to purchase at 1995 Coachmen Catalina Sport (240WB) with 50,000 miles. It runs great and all systems work.

We live in PA and between just the current health concerns and my job's requirements, we are planning some PA trips to get us started. The first stop is the PA Grand Canyon.

I look forward to learning from all of you in this community.

It's been that type of market for several months now. Glad you found a rig that you like.
At around 25' in length, you shouldn't have any problem getting into state or national parks.
Congratulations and welcome to the forum!

I hope the Weelsboro Diner still serves great meals. We enjoyed this town as a base for visiting in the area.....including the Grand Canyon just East of town.
