WooHoo! I got her home!

Flew from Raleigh Durham this past Friday up to Wixom, MI to General RV to pick up the new ride... Its a 2009 Sightseer 37L. Got there about 10:00 AM, and after signing away my daughter's college fund and getting the demo, I was on the road at 4:00 PM. Mangaged to get to Statesboro OH at about dark and stopped at a KOA there for the night. Left Saturday morning just before 5:00 AM and got into Raleigh at about 4:00 that afternoon.

Here is the link to some pictures from the dealer's website that I snagged before they took them down. As soon as I get a moment, I will take some of my own and post them. Now to find the time to put all of my "stuff" from the 5th wheel into the MH.

Sell the house and let the kid fend for herself. If you keep on the move they won't find you to nag about the payments.

Not to answer for Duane but talk to Harry at the Wayland store. Bought a used unit from him a couple of months ago and had a great experience. Found out after I got there that I know the service manager.... so maybe that helped a bit Tell him Hank sent ya!

Hey guys,

Sorry its taken so long to get back on here, but I would highly recommend General. I worked with George Deveau, who is in charge of internet sales. Everyone there was great to work with, no high pressure sales tactics. At the closing, where the most dealers try to push all sorts of warraties, and "free" camping, there was no push. I basically said no thanks, and it was never brought up again.

The unit that I bought, was originally at the Wayland store and they volunteered to bring it Wixom, where I got the cheapest and most direct flight. The internet manager came to the airport and picked me up and the rest is history...
