Hello family and friends, tonight I finally take time to post our big news. After much consternation, thought and prayer, we have taken the plunge and purchased our RV!  We are elated, exhausted and very thankful. It has been a busy week and a half here in Tampa, Florida.

We arrived here on the 5th of November, only to find that the motorhome we were looking to buy already had a buyer. The buyer had placed a deposit and was waiting for his credit approval and something else to come together for him. There were no other Allegro REDs that we were interested in on the lot. We had resigned ourselves to head back home after spending some time on a couple area beaches and doing a little sight seeing.

November 8th we got a call informing us that the previous buyers financing had fell through and wanting to know if we were still interested. We were. I still almost lost the purchase during our negotiation process, I got a might stubborn with my figures. I finally relented (a little) and the purchase was made :)

Next came all the paperwork, and the walk-through inspections resulting in the infamous punchlist. We had a few items on our punchlist, things that needed adjusting and touching up. We have been here ever since getting those items accomplished.

I think we finally have them all done and we will being heading back towards Louisiana tomorrow or Friday. Those that are interested in seeing our new home, check out the pictures in my previous post, that is the one. I will post new pictures later as well. Tonight we are happy, but exhausted.

More to follow...... Life is good.... God is good. ;)
