Hershey RV show

We certainly needed a getaway,
after the last week's devastation.
We had already planned on the Hershey RV show.
We stayed in a nice Holiday Inn Express,
in Lebanon, PA.

Friday night after checking in,
we headed over to the
Thousand Trails RV resort,
where Howard & Linda
were staying after their
fall rally.
We sat around the campfire
with other RV-Dreamers.

We stayed for a little while, 
and talked to everyone, 
it was a lot of fun!

Today, Saturday,
we went over to the RV show.

We really wanted to see in person..
the model of Keystone Montana
that we liked the best.

We went straight to the Montana section..

We found the model we liked..

George & I went through the rig,
a Montana 3700RL.

Howard & Linda came by
and looked it over, and 
gave us some good advice as well.

It's exactly perfect!
We ended up buying it..
but this model pictured has the
Big Sky package.
We bought the rig without it,
which saved us $10k,
but we still got the features we wanted.

I have a few pictures..
but not of  'ours'...

We are ordering ours through the 
factory in Indiana.
We ordered it with a
washer & dryer,
second battery,
slide awnings,
and a partridge in a pear tree. :-)

The RV will be delivered on 10/1!
George and I will pick it up, 
and do the walk through, 
while they install the hitch.

Stay tuned for more pictures!

We are very excited.
We will have a new home,
even though we aren't ready to 
go on the road quite yet.

 Now we have to find a place to park it!


  1. Wonderful, wonderful! Hope you can park it somewhere that you can "play house" like we have. We would have loved to buy new, but the $$ were just out of the question.

    Can you put it in an RV park near enough to where you both work so you can live in it?


  2. Congratulations!!! We're sooo excited for you. Glad you were able to get what you wanted.

  3. Congratulations! Finding the perfect RV is the way to go. Good times ahead!
