The Cat Is Out Of The Bag! Meet Freeda The Newest Member of Our Family

I haven't posted for a few days because I was afraid I might give away our secret and Joe asked me to not tell until it was in our driveway.

After we finished all the paper work, we were escorted out to where our rig was. This is what was on the little stand beside us.

I had my heart set on a Sunseeker for a long, long time, but in the end,  we wound up with the Freelander and they both have some of the same features. And besides, they made us such a good deal.

This little box is the air compressor for our braking system.

When we stepped inside the coach, there was a beautiful gift box and this $100 gift certificate to spend in their Parts Department on anything we wanted.  If we would have used it today, we would have received an additional 10% discount also. But  we were both on overload for all the decisions we've made this week, and chose to wait a few days. I want a new patio rug to match the color of the awning.  But Joe has some wants to. We'll figure it all out.

The gift box

 Kristi, our sales counsultant Kevin's wife, has her own on line business. and this pretty box was just full of some of the things she makes. Scone Mixes, Bread mix, a nice candle, seasonings,  Lavender Linen Spray, and  Gourmet Carmel Corn. Her products can be seen at Kristi's

I wanted to sit behind the wheel.  I will eventually learn to drive it just so in case of an emergency I can. I very seldom drive if Joe is home. Hey, why should I......he's the professional driver  and he enjoys doing the driving. 

This is Kevin Kotrous our Sales Consultant  giving us the keys. I have to say, in the past, buying a car, or an RV, I haven't had good experiences. That is all in the past now because, Kevin was the ultimate in Sales! I don't think that man even knows how to be pushy. He made it very clear from the moment we walked in the door, he was there to SERVE us.  We knew what we wanted and he made it happen! If we had questions, he had answers and if he didn't he found someone who did. Well, it's been fun sharing our news with you. Nothing has changed in our lives. We are still caring for Joe's mom who is doing very well! The main reason we bought the Coachman now... Our Rexhall Aerbus was 17 years old. And every year we waited to trade it in, was that much less we would get. When all the dust was settled, we are only paying less than $50 a month more than we were paying on the Rexhall. And this one is a 2012.

I am going to have fun, making the inside  our get away home, and Joe?............I went out to give him a message and he was cleaning the wheels and grill etc.  He's happy. Joe's always happy when he has a spray bottle in one hand and a rag in the other.
