Same for us. We are 1 month owners. Well, currently working out the title details with the DMV. Sellers have been helpful just didn't come up as the last on the title. Anyway, she is in our possession and the details are hopefully on their way to being ironed out. We have a lot to do and one step at a time will be our motto. Yes, compromise on the glamping, I guess. Started out as mine and hubby is so helpful I will resist the effort to go all pink and frilly:) Let's stay in touch....nice to compare notes as we go.
