Besides getting it road worthy I'd be sure to get one of the emergency road plans available from Good Sam, AAA or whoever. Hopefully you wont ever have to call them but needing one tow usually covers fees spent on dues.

We are almost to buying a 310 w/ couch/dinette in back - I help run a volunteer group, and the idea that I could hold a full *meeting* in the rig is just too wonderful for words! (We're in the Pacific North WET).

Its original owner did everything he could think of - 12 years ago - and has driven it 2000 miles *since*, incl. 2-3 years of just back and forth in the driveway periodically.

We will have to get it 3000 miles - so I'm intending to ask the shop that's inspecting it for us to replace filters and at least the pressurized hoses and fan belt... the critical rubber parts. The tires are 6 years old - fervently hope I don't have to replace, with them being in Florida, not somewhere cold!

I expect horsing it back home will be a bit of an adventure, but really don't want to get laid up somewhere with something major having gone wrong - input?

Have to ask, where is the 310 in Florida?
Thanks, Derek

Ayup.

Bill, you betcha! I've had AAA for *years*, and got RV on my benighted effort to turn a UHaul into a portable cabin. (Transferring to personal vehicle, and then getting it insured, killed that plan...)

Crazee - it's in the panhandle, near Tallahassee.
