Default Prospective Owner No Longer!

Greetings from the Smoky Mountains! The wife and I just purchased an '06 2720SL in great shape from the second owner who'd only had it a year or so and bought a motor home. Very clean and well maintained, with all records and one very desirable upgrade: the 15" tires purchased two years ago. Also, they threw in a microwave and toaster oven.

On our way home yesterday we stopped for gas (16 mpg in an' 05 Tacoma V6/4WD, by the way), and a guy with his little boy came up and asked how we liked it, as he was thinking about buying one in the future.

A bit of biography: I'm a retired Episcopal priest, a Cajun who lost his way and ended up in the Smokies. We did a good bit of camping back in Louisiana with our son back in the day, working our way from tents through three different pop-ups. Got out of it in the early 90's and decided a few months ago that we'd try it again. Hobbies are playing with little British cars, playing guitar and clawhammer banjo, reading, and now, of course, camping.

Looking forward to posting and getting to know y'all. The forum has already been a tremendous asset in making our decision.
