Status changed from 'currently looking'!

Despite the cajoling from my friends, I did have the ability (after years of looking) to pull the trigger. We have purchased a 2008 Safari 27FB for our family. We couldn't be more excited! I conducted an inspection trip last week (1400 miles RT) and now have to wait two weeks to go back and take delivery! It's like having a Christmas present given to you that you can't play with for two weeks.

I couldn't decide if I should post the news. I have already been on the forum and received quality advice about a repair issue. But I had to tell someone that we finally made the leap!

We're hoping for a smooth 700 mile maden voyage next weekend!

Congrats!!!

Good to hear that you're now titled "Owner". Hope your maiden voyage is memorable (in a good way of course ).

Well it's about time. We almost gave up on you.

Congrats, you picked a great floor plan and these next two weeks will take forever. Make sure you post pics of your new baby when you get him/her home.

Hi, JDMetz— I'm a very much new-slash-longtime-lurker myself, but want to welcome you. I'll probably be following along with many of youre posts and questions, because I practically could have written your post! Here's my intro to you:
