Thumbs up Just completed the first 400 miles plus trip

We got our 81 Excella 280 Tubo Diesel. While several things need work (black tank leaks, most windows need rebuilding, etc...) the running gear is excellent! Cruised from Lowell ID, to Vancouver WA without a hiccup. The former owner took fantastic care of the coach but it had been sitting for several years. I haven't even had to put any fuel in it yet. Next step is to get it back to Phoenix in a couple weeks.

Congratulations on the addition to the family! I look forward to seeing it at a 4CU rally in the near future.

Did Steve and Faith tell you we were looking for you guys last weekend? We were camped with Louis, Sergio, Jim and Mini at Willow Springs Lake. We wanted to invite you guys over for a Saturday night grill your favorite night. The lack of cell phone coverage ruined our plans...

Have a safe trip, we will see you soon!
