  1. 2012 Itasca Navion on Mercedes Sprinter chassis with turbo diesel engine. New tires 3/18 (about 6K on them). New house and chassis batteries 3/18. This unit is in great shape but our needs have changed, so we must sell it. NADA Average retail $66,600. No lien and Clean title in hand. Serious inquires only, cash sale, no trades. Needs nothing... ready to roll. Located in N. Tucson, AZ, local pickup only. $49,995 firm. Many options including Onan Quiet diesel 3200. Sold 1/12/18
  2. We are no longer full timing and have changed carriers as well. No longer need our AC791L Jetpack. Works great and supports MIMO (can have dual antennas) and up to 15 connected devices. If you're looking for such a device, PM me. Would like to get $50 including shipping, CONUS only.
  3. Sounds like your headed to Tucson. I'll be there in a few days for the winter. Pima Air Museum is awesome and if you haven't been there before, I'd also suggest the Sonoran Desert Museum https://www.desertmuseum.org/ (stay for the raptor show!), Gates Pass is beautiful as you drive in to the museum. The Tucson Botanical gardens are very nice and a drive up Mt Lemmon is a must if you haven't been! There's a very large open mine in Kearny which is about a 90 minute drive from Tucson. Safe travels.
  4. Got to Wickenburg last winter and enjoyed some of the team roping competitions while staying at the nearby Escapee park. May swing that way for a bit if I end up going to Quartzsite again this year. Enjoy!
  5. Where are you going in AZ for winter? I'm headed to Catalina area just north of Tucson for Dec-Mar. Love it there and love watching the weather app for all my friends and relatives slugging it out back in Maine.
  6. Just passed the 1 year mark FT in rig since 7/12/16. Left Maine last September and slowly ambled down the east coast to FL where we spent a few days doing some business, then headed west to TX for most of November. Made it to Tucson area in early December and stayed there with some Maine friends for much of the winter, with some repairs and side excursions to Tucson, Quartzsite, Cottonwood, Jerome, Sedona, Phoenix, Grand Canyon, and Congress AZ at the Escapee park for a week. Got back to Maine May 1st which was cold and wet for most of the month, but having a beautiful summer here in a seasonal spot. Will head out late Oct with destination AZ again where a seasonal planned from Dec-March. Other than a Norcold failure which was 6 weeks fixing, things with the coach have been good. Spent 130 nights in Thousand trails system on our membership so that has worked well and will be a cost savings going forward. Renewed the Passport America as well but not KOA (just didn't see the value in KOA membership - minimal discounts on overpriced fees IMHO). Found our Good Sam Gold extended service/warranty plan very worthwhile and having glass coverage on insurance also paid off as we needed a new windshield at $3550.
  7. Hi Angie, Congrats on getting your house under contract! Now the real fun begins cleaning it out! We closed on ours last July so it's all too fresh in our minds! We had only moved into our rig full time about 2 weeks when we went to the Escapee boot camp and rally in Essex Jct, VT. Perfect timing and it was right in our backyard so to speak. FYI, we were in Florida last week staying at 3 Flags (TT) in Wildwood and tending some business in Zephyr Hills so we drove through Bushnell and stopped at Sumter Oaks to check it out for the future, In talking with 2 very friendly guys in the office, I would say that if you haven't already called them and seen about reservations you should do so right away. They spoke of it being full and sometimes hard to get reservations in the peak winter months. It's a relatively small park but looked very nice with mature trees and nice shade and folks seemed very friendly. We are Thousand Trails members as well as SKP's and we just got to Lake Conroe TT in Willis TX yesterday. Wow! What a nice facility. We'll be in TX through early December then heading to Tucson area for Dec and earl Jan. We'll stop at Las Cruces along the way to visit White Sands and in mid-January will join the Escapee Boomers at Quartzsite to see what that's all about. Good luck with your plans and keep us informed on your progress!
  8. Hi Rick and Mary, Congrats on the 1 year mark. It was great meeting you both at the Escapees Northeast chapter rally. We're coming up on the 3 month mark. :-) We're in NY near Rochester and turning south Monday for PA, NC, then generally towards the FL pan handle and TX before heading to AZ in December. Hoping we'll run into you at Quartsite or Yuma this winter. Safe travels and stay in touch!
  9. Woops. Sorry for the dupe. Internet was flaky here...
  10. We'll probably be down in TX late fall to visit friends (maybe check Bentsen Palms in Mission TX) then on to NM & AZ into early 2017 before heading back towards FL in Mid-March or so. We haven't been either so not sure where we'll stay but may hit some of the Escapee parks along with Thousand Trails as we are members of both.
  11. Hi Steve, Great to hear from you. Hopefully, our paths will cross at some point. We'd love to do the balloon festival but can't quite make the timing work this year, but definitely putting it in the plan for next year! We're also planning a trip into New Brunswick and Nova Scotia to board the ferry to Newfoundland and spend some time over there (I've been to Newfoundland and Labrador on the bike a couple times, but Jane has never seen them). Good luck with the house sale. It really maxxed us out cleaning things out and coming down to the wire on the closing. My buyer used a "Midnight mortgage company" (1st time home owner thought he'd save a few bucks) which gave him fits and we didn't have a firm closing date/time until 3 hours prior to closing! But it all worked out in the end. Phew... It does feel pretty liberating to have zero debt, coach title in hand, and no lawn to mow, and no need for a snow blower to clear a driveway! We hope to maximize use of our TT/RPI membership to keep RV site costs down where possible. So tell me what the Hoots rally is and how do I find info on it? We're heading out of Maine sometime after labor day and going out through the Adirondacks and Rochester NY and thinking of stopping by Newmar on the way out before heading south/west. Take care and keep in touch!
  12. Sorry, just saw this. But Rt 2 is a good US route and while may be slower with summer folks here should be fine for those reading this later...
  13. Hi Kirk, What is the onsite count now anyway? You can PM me if you want to bring an SD card or USB stick by and I can give you a few if you want. The originals are large and really chew up the old data plan to send them again after uploading them.
  14. Hello Fellow Escapees. I've posted some aerial shots of the rally site on my photography page. Some were Thursday and the last few there at present are from Saturday evening (7/24). You can see the difference in the number of RV's. Still about 180 more rigs expected according to the ladies we spoke to at the front gate this morning. Enjoy!
  15. Well, we finally made it as of about 6:30 last night, we closed on our house here in Southern Maine. We had been living in the coach for a few days, but somehow the house being gone makes full-timing seem much more real! Now it's just some banking to attend to in the next few days and off to the Escapees boot camp and VT rally next week. We'll spend August back in Maine near our daughter at Pumpkin Patch RV where we'll also attend the Northeast Escapee summer Lobsterfest rally while there. Then a slow migration south and west. So I guess we've graduated! Hope to meet some of you at the VT SKP rally and boot camp!
