Hooray - after waiting almost two months, I got an email this afternoon stating that our new Horizon is at Lazydays. We will do a test drive of the coach on the afternoon of May 24, then first thing next morning begins our detailed inspection.

We are expecting little issues and problems, but hope nothing serious crops up. The salesman knows no money changes hands until I'm satisfied with the condition of the coach. I figure this is my best chance EVER in the life of the coach to get prompt service ;-)

Then on May 26, we have a Datastorm (Internet dish) install scheduled.

Wish me luck!

Congratulations! Which Coach did you get and which options? We have been very happy with our 40AD.

John,

Enjoy every minute of it. I am certain you will be as pleased as we were with our Horizon.

We got almost every option EXCEPT the stove, dishdrawer, TripTek (I'll use Silverleaf), GPS (laptop instead), washer/dryer (we are installing the Splendide 2100).

We did not get the Ultraleather couch - we opted for the fabric due to the cats we will be travelling with. I loved the dual power recliner - I can imagine myself parked in the recliner watching the History channel - ahh - life will be good.

I'll post a bunch of pictures on my web site after we get the coach.

I WILL have a good experience at Lazydays (or they don't get any money.)

Congrats John, I'll bet those were the two longest months of your life. Ever notice how time seems to stand still while you're waiting. If you're like us, you'll be sleeping in the coach in the driveway the first night.

Congrats!! John, We love our coach as I'm sure you will. I know you will do a detailed inspection/PDI but just a note one thing I did not do was check all the interior mouldings and a lot of them were loose, I fixed them all my self, but just give all of them a slight tug to check I'm, sure you have most everything else covered. Again Congrats!!!!

Congrats to you John! How in the world can you stand to wait 2 more weeks to go see it? I'd be going nuts by then! Since it's at LD, with hundreds of people coming in there to look at motorhomes every day, I'd want some reassurances that the coach I have waited 2 months for is locked and kept that way until I got there. You don't want people tracking in and out of there, messin' with stuff. I'm sure that you already had this conversation with them. Best of luck.

How true, how true Capt. Bill. I asked the salesman if it was going to be open for traffic/lookers and he said absolutely not. It will be kept locked away for just us! Some of the coaches we looked at at LD were really shopworn with stuff broken. One even had a bad leak in the bedroom and the carpet was soaked (which we pointed out to the porter.)

Whoopee-- 12 more days!

John, great to see you so enthused ... I love positive attitudes and yours seem to be quite strong. In Italian, there is a word pronounced "chin-don" which one usually mutters as they toast the wine glasses with one another. It means may you live and enjoy a 100 years. To you I propose this toast.

On another note, I value your expertise. I posted a question "unknown bracket". I would appreciate it if you would read it and I welcome anything you may have to contribute.

Congrats John,

I'm sure you can't wait!!!!!

We were standing at the dealer when the unit arrived. We couldn't wait another second!

Good luck with your new Toy!!

You should enjoy the Datastorm, it works reasonably well (especially in the middle of the dessert). Do you have an idea where you are going to have the data storm equipment installed?

Cheers!
