Default First Wanderlodge Purchase, New Member

Long-time lurker to this site, and appreciate all the knowledge represented here. Hopefully, some of the knowledge has led me to make a wise purchase. I did, however violate sound advise by buying a coach without looking at it personally. A relative in the area of our new coach did an inspection at my direction, and I felt somewhat comfortable making an offer, and after the usual negotiation came to an agreeable price.
I contacted Mallie and Karen Lennon because they have the same year, same equipped unit. They were extremely helpful, and invited me to their place to show me their bus. They explained the many systems on board, my head is still spinning from all the information. Blue Birds are much more complicated than our previous coaches. They took me for a ride, and even let me drive their bus. Now I see why Wanderlodge owners are so passionate about their coaches. Mallie, and Karen are high-quality, very gracious individuals that took time to educate a potential future owner.
I purchased two one-way airline tickets to CA to drive the coach back home to Missouri with my 81 year old father. I may be posting questions if we have any trouble on the road. If no questions are submitted, all is well, and we are having a fun trip.

Congratulations Jeff. I only wished my dad would have been alive when I bought mine. My father-in-law has substituted on that somewhat. Hope you have a great trip and hope you enjoy your coach as much as we do ours.
