What we got: a 34 ft 1994 Fleetwood Bounder. She has typical 1990's decor but it's in good condition so we will forgive her for being dated. The exterior is fading but is not bashed in anywhere. The mechanics appear to be functioning very well. When the owner powered her up I didn't even realize he'd done that. It was that quiet. And the generator was surprisingly quiet as well. From what we can tell she's been very well taken care of and came with a very well organized binder of manuals and records.
This model has no slides but is overflowing with storage. We are positively giddy! And it has the biggest shower/tub that we've ever seen in an RV. And we've looked at so many of them. Seriously. Some of the showers we've seen have made me want to cry at how tiny they are. And the same for the toilet rooms. While it's true we are both losing weight, I don't think we're going to be svelte anytime soon. So that extra space is going to be quite the luxury.
We plan to take her out next week for an overnighter to a local state park so we can get properly acquainted with her. And from there we will probably take her out for short trips through the week as often as we can so that by the time we're ready to go full-time (December) we'll be pretty comfortable and not acting all newbie stupid. :)
Eventually we will do some interior updating; replace the flooring with wood laminate, paint over fugly wallpaper, put up new window coverings, swap out the brass everywhere with something more to our liking and cover up that upholstery. But for right now she is perfectly livable. There is some plastic trim throughout that is cracked and coming off. That we will deal with sooner than later. It's the biggest eyesore in the rig but looks like an easy fix. :) We'll have a lot of fun making it our own. We've always loved nesting!
Since pictures say a thousand words, I'll quit writing now and get on to the picture show!
