One of the fellows in my Elks Lodge retired from the power company, sold his house and bought a motorcoach. Now he and the wife just roan the country in it. His first one was a lemon, nothing but problems. He traded it and seems to be happy with the new one.

BTW: How much is a fillup $500?
If it were empty, then 90 gallons X 4.15 or so a gallon, so about 375 bucks and that will get me at least 750 to 800 miles, so I can do a bunch of local camping before ever filling up. I just filled it up and I bet I will not do it again until I go to Annapolis in August.

Since I owned a large RV but I will say this Speed kills MPG big time and they are not a Porsche for handling and stopping. Take it easy.

Too much junk/toys to mention, ever changing due to too getting bored too quickly. I need a 10 step program!
Want to call? I'm in the book. Want to argue....First explain the square root of negative one....lol
