A Surprise in Tampa

We stayed a few extra days in Tampa so we could pick up our new motorhome!Yes, Sid got a wild hair about getting something a little bigger and we decided to go and look.  Well, you know what happens when you go look at something?  You end up buying!

Living Room
This was before we moved anything in.

Other side of living room
You can see we've moved some things in.  They parked us in the delivery lot, with electricity, for two nights while we transferred everything from one to the other. 


My wonderful 4 door refrigerator
I LOVE my new fridge!  I can actually fit a gallon of milk, a gallon of tea and a pitcher of regular tea in it and have plenty of room for fresh veggies and all the other stuff!

Not as much closet storage as we had in Julie, but we're slowly getting organized to work with it. 

It's a 2007 39' Itasca Suncrusier and it's in great condition.  Much more living room and kitchen space, much less bedroom space, a little more room in the bathroom and a lot more storage space outside.  While Julie served us well for the first part of our adventure, the upcoming months will be much more comfortable in the new, unnamed one.  It's like living in a one bedroom apartment! 

We purchased at Lazydays RV in Tampa, FL and, let me tell you, they treated us very well indeed.  This place is huge - 120 acres of new and used RVs!  We could not extend our stay at the MacDill famcamp long enough to wait for delivery of the new motorhome, so they put us up, free of charge, in their on-site RV Resort for 3 days.  We were given coupons for breakfast and lunch for each day in their on-site restaurant, garbage was picked up each day and the local paper was delivered each morning.  Everyone, from the salesman to the delivery person, was in constant contact with us,  letting us know where things stood in the delivery process and, even though we purchased the unit as-is, every little thing we noticed was either fixed or replaced.  Lazydays is a family-owned business, with another store in Tuscon and three more places they have just purchased in Colorado.   Their customer service is outstanding, their prices reasonable and we highly recommend them!

Now it's off to the panhandle of Florida and more beach time.

Until next time...
