Long search but found one
After being introduced to TT's with a older Holiday Rambler, trading to a 31' '79 Excella and using it through our kids teen years for a bunch of great family trips, it was either upgrade the '79 or step up. We wanted something that wouldn't take a lot of work other than the usual maintenance, time was limited with several houses and aging parents to look after. After about 8 months of looking, I found this (hopefully) pristine '00 five hundred miles away via the Internet. After calling and talking to the fellow for a bit about it I was excited to think I had found what I wanted. I'm not sure he believed me when I said I would stop by the next morning to see it, as I live in Ohio and he lived in Kansas City, but I had missed a few opportunities and didn't want to miss this one. Well, I made it there by breakfast, and after a tour and inspection, it was everything I was looking for (and then some). Hooked it up and was back in Ohio for a late supper.
Since then we have logged over 25,000 miles with it and couldn't be more pleased, it tows super smooth and is comfortable to return to at the end of a day hiking and sightseeing.
