The adoption is final..."my" Sunline is home and h

I find as I get older that I dont get too excited much anymore. Do you remember when you were a child and you couldn't sleep on Christmas eve, or the like? We'll at 44 years old I can say it felt like being 8 years old again on Christmas eve the last couple of days! Yesterday was my "Christmas", Happy RVing to all!

Yesterday morning looked like Christmas too, see pic below! I woke up to snow, and almost didn't make the journey to pick up our Sunline.

IMO, towing on wet, salted roads is not to healthy for an RV. But my immaturity and excitment got the better of me so off we went. 4 hours each way to Imperial Trailer Sales in Troy, NY. The roads were wet but they dried up quickly, and the further east we went the more the sun shined and temp increased. The drive home was perfect, roads dry, sun out, and most importantly no damaging salt.

When we arrived, the new TT was prepped very nicely and in better condition than i recalled! Dare I say she's a cherry after only having her home a few hours....

I have been doing tons of reading from this forum to educate myself over the last few weeks. Thank you to all for sharing your experiences and knowledge!

Congratulations on your new toy. From your post it sounds like it was sure worth the wait and the drive. Enjoy your new coach, warmer weather is one the way.

That is such a great story. I remember Dec.11 06. That's when our 2499 came to Canada and we met her at the Ambassador bridge in Windsor ON. Felt so cool and we were as you say like children on Christmas. IN fact everything we bought after that was a gift to us for Christmas just to make the TT ours.

On a sad note a week ago Fri. morning while driving back to Windsor from Toronto in a big rig I past a red pick up nosed into the center median. On top was a nice canoe and in the box some bikes. On the back a TT on it's side holding the rear of the truck in the air. The road conditions at the time were wet and snow covered. I thought what a sad way for a trip to end and my heart goes out to all who find themselves on the road in those conditions. Since I am working still although close to retirement we travel in nice weather. When we do travel we will be stopping in bad weather. It is just worth the wait.

So I am very glad that you had a great experience and I wish you many years of safe and happy travels
