Great suggestion Postman.  Thanks!

Kevin nice looking choice. However the title status says lien. That is enough to make me request a carfax. My experience is Insurance will only pay the first lien holder. So CARFAX is mandatory for me at no cost to me.

Thanks Russ!

We are also going to look at the 1996 Allegro Bay tomorrow.  454, 4 speed transmission with overdrive, only 43K miles, and looks pretty darn nice.  I got a hold of the guy today and he seems like a good he wants me to call him back in the morning since his house is full of Christmas family visitors.  
With what we have left from our savings, and with what we received so graciously from the Go Fund Me, we could actually afford to buy this one right away at only 7000.00 dollars...and that is if he doesn't want to come down in price.  It is a nice looking coach, and Patti loves it from the pictures.  Of course, that would wipe out pretty much all of our money, so we would have to pray that the Go Fund me brings in just enough more to get us out to Arizona.

If it is a 3 speed it will be a C6 transmission. I don't know what the 4 speeds are. It looks good from the pictures. Hopefully it is good and be reliable.

Hey guys.  We are going to go look at this RV tomorrow.  Anything I should know about the John Deere chassis, Ford 460, and whatever transmission this motorhome uses that I should be aware of or worried about?

Merry Christmas to all!!!

Kevin, "Off a duck's back" was here long before twitter. I am sure Joseph never  asked for WIC he barely found a stable for his wife to give birth. Yet he was grateful for the dummer boy as much as he was for the kings.  The greatest story ever told.

After a couple of less than kind emails and PMs, Merry Christmas! And I sincerely hope that you never have a chain of events that, despite your best efforts, brings you to your knees with your back against a wall during your life. I'm 50 years old, and never took a dime in welfare or "WIC" or anything else from anyone, and always donate to those in need...and regularly donate to animal shelters. But have a Merry Christmas! God bless and may the wind be always at your back.

Hey folks.  Even if you can't donate, could you please share this on your Facebook, Twitter, and other social media accounts?

Thank you so much!

Kevin and Patti
