Default Newbie from Michigan Cash buyer on the hunt lol!

Hi all, or y’all I’ve lived half my life in Florida and half in Michigan so I’m good either way. My wife and I just retired and are getting ready to buy our first Bluebird don’t have enough budget but I am sure we will find the coach driven by the little old lady to church on Sunday. Looking toward to the many mechanics and technicians we will meet for years to come! Lol! Anyway..excited to be joining the community and coming to all the get togethers and always making the same sloppy joes to pass EVERY time...lol! Oh the fun we will have.
On the hunt for the first rig! Thanks, in advance for all the stupid questions I will be asking in the meantime.

Welcome Bear,
In previous years there has been a fall rally in Ludington, at Poncho's
Have you attended?? The elder Poncho owner was a Wanderlodge owner.
Now the next generation & maybe GrandKids run the campground.

We meet in Shipshewana each year with about 35 to 40 Birds.
Presently the campground is full, but get on the waiting list, there are also cabins for rent,
or there are other campgrounds near-by and motels.

Click on the BBBB banner at the top of the home page, several good Birds available

There is a lot of Birds in Michigan. Hope you find the 'ONE' for you and your wife. Barb and I started our Bluebird lifestyle at the Ludington Rally a number of years ago! Been hooked ever since! Great people that have become lifelong friends. Barb and I took the reigns for the Ludington Rally last year from Wanderlodge GURU and legend's Ron & Dorinda Rueckwald. Look for the announcement of the 2019 Rally in the coming weeks. Look forward to meeting you and your wife in your future Wanderlodge!

40,000 give or take so I know it will be a challenge, open to all except fc, and I’m a sucker for the cut glass, brass Elvis look..but I also love a beautiful wood..but I also understand drivetrain and equipment in working order is the real king! See how fun this search will be lol!
