And there goes our motorhome. As we were driving the forty foot motorhome towing the thirty foot trailer from Arizona to Montana in early May, the Cowboy began thinking it was time to downsize–I’ve been thinking it for a while! We really don’t need a forty foot motorhome to go back and forth between two houses and we would really like something smaller to use during Montana summers. This Country Coach was a 1996 and older coaches are hard to sell. We listed the coach on Craigslist and for almost a month had not one phone call. We lowered the asking price an insignificant amount and changed the wording of the ad. The very same morning I changed the ad a guy from Roundup, MT called–he was in Livingston and would be passing through Big Timber in about a hour, could he come look at the coach.
Long story short, he bought the coach and we delivered it to Big Timber on Saturday morning. We were sad to see the old girl go–our next RV will most certainly not be the quality of that motorhome. Granite floor tiles, corian countertops, cherry cabinets, real wood pocket doors–it was a gorgeous coach but it’s time to move on.
We are negotiating with a young couple in Billings to purchase their Roadmaster Predator toy hauler–a bumper pull travel trailer. The trailer was located in a storage lot with no power available and the generator needed servicing. Once the rig has power and we can see everything working, it’s the one we will purchase. Yep, it’s way smaller and we sure moved a whole lot of stuff out of the Country Coach–time to downsize stuff too I guess!
Yesterday it was 91 degrees, today it was only 60 degrees with some rain showers–strange weather!
Our friends Angie and Ralph are traveling in Alaska with their truck and truck camper. In the last few days Angie caught a 28 pound halibut while out on a fishing charter. Angie once said to us–“you guys change RVs more often than some people change their underwear!” Well, Angie, we are changing again but we owned the Country Coach 7 years, way longer than any other RV we have had!
