Default If you need me, just call!

Let me say upfront, I'm not looking for customers or business. I'm just offering a helping hand. I'm a new Bird owner and in fact we are heading to Phoenix next week to pick up our new to us coach. I own Ernie's Garage in the NKY, greater Cinti Area. We are just a mile or two off I-75 in Erlanger, Ky. I have a 24 bay general repair shop and we have provided repair and general help to travelers and motorhome people for over 44 years. While we are not big truck, bus or diesel experts at all, we certainly have know the area and resources well. We also have 50 foot bays and will gladly help out anyone passing through if only to offer a place to stay and a howdy?? We regularly provide electric water and space for people passing through that need help and regularly repair gas motorhomes. My business line is 859-727-4999 and my personal cell is 859-750-7491 if I can be of help. I have been reading your forum for sometime and it has been priceless in my search for my BB. I'm sure it will also be a huge help in the future. I look forward to meeting many of you.

Default Long test drive

Thanks Randy,
I talked to you a bunch of times when I was looking and always seemed to miss out on coaches that you had for sale. You were always straight up and honest and I appreciated that. Everyone has been super helpful. I kind of found this 93 WB40 by accident in an estate deal in Phoenix while traveling on business. Seems to be a real nice coach and was a great deal (I hope?). We leave next week to pick it up. Looking forward to first trip.....just wish it wasn't a 2000 mile test drive!!!!
Bob

Welcome Bob & Thanks for the introduction,
We travel I 75 to and from Michigan.
There are a few basic things that need checked, that you may already have a handle on,
but ask any question before the test ride.
There are several BB members in your area.
Looking forward to meeting Bob & Trish at Coachworkx.

Make sure your roadside insurance is up to date and the numbers are handy, and Murphy's Law, you won't need it! Have a safe trip and happy driving! Nothing like a 2000 mile shakedown trip.

Default road trip

Thanks Markus,
I have the road service policy renewed and ready!!! We are also driving our toad out there and towing it back so we will at least have a car with us just in case. I also got a new screw driver, a set of pliers and a really big hammer to take....LOL.
