Today is the day........

T-minus 2 hours until we pull into our RV dealer in OH. Road trip started yesterday with my bride as co-pilot. Did about nine hours and stopped in Medina OH. Got a great deal on an almost new Reese 25k Elite near there from a member of the Forest River forums that just happened to be right on the way to the dealer. Sold my 18k last week on Craigslist and only cost me $150 to upgrade. Anyways, had dinner and adult beverages at Buffalo Wild Wings and after a good night sleep at our hotel, we are doing the final couple hours to Jeff Couch's RV Nation in Hamilton OH. Saved about nine grand off my closest dealer who isn't exactly local at two hours away. Plus, love me a good road trip! So, the moment of truth is on the horizon for my little SB, SC, SRW, 6.7. The story continues with pictures soon.......

Cool!.. we also traveled for our FW.. Texas to Michigan.. saved over 10k.

amazing how much room there is in the prices and how dealers will hold to 100% of 0, instead of 80% of something.

OH is nice rolling hills and farms. Co-pilot behind the wheel now. Saw about 150 deer, a coyote, 10,000 migrating Canada Geese, tons of Hawks and turkey vultures, and an Owl.

Co-pilot and OH barn...

Sarge, it's a Forest River XLR 395AMP toyhauler. Had it built. Ordered Dec 1st and it finally got out of the paint shop and delivered to the dealer two weeks ago. Been quite the wait for someone as impatient as me! Thanks for the offer of assistance too!!!

Andre, wife said towing the arc on the way home is a big negative...LOL....

My favorite road sign so far was in NY on 90. "Caution, incarceration facility area. Do not pick up hitchhikers." Good to know...
