All fixed!

Yanks RV Resort
Greenfield, CA

After two long months, we finally got to
take Harvey up to Camping World 
for the long awaited repairs.
Our appointment with the metal fabricator was
 Thursday morning at 7 am.
The traffic up north is terrible,
so we decided to drive up on Wednesday afternoon,
and camp out in the parking lot.

Thursday's repair took all of 2 hours,
and we pulled it back over to CW to await
their repairs on Friday.

Thursday afternoon we met up with Greg & Connie
and dined out at Sweet Tomatoes!

Friday morning George pulled Harvey into
one of the bays to get the body work started.

While they worked on that,
we rode over to Greg & Connie's at Coyote RV Resort,
where George helped Greg restring one of his blinds.

Connie and I supervised :-)
Afterward we took a ride to pick up a few things,
then went out to dinner at BJ's.
We had a great time!

Finally at around 4 pm yesterday,
Harvey was all spiffed up, better than new!



They really did do a great job, 
and we're both happy with the results.

We pulled back in to Yanks this morning,
did some house cleaning and laundry,
and got our Christmas decorations up.

George and I have decided to stick with 
our same insurance company,
despite the run around we got.
If we switch to someone else,
we lose the replacement cost coverage
that we currently have.
we raised our deductible to $1,000
and our premium isn't as bad as before.
We'll pay $2084 for the truck and trailer for the year.

Now it's time to start celebrating the season!


  1. Nice decorations. If we sit in one place for a spell, I will do ours.

  2. Hooray! Harvey looks great. So nice to get all this behind you. :c)

  3. Wow Harvey really does look fine. I'll bet he's happier and tows a lot better too. Thanks for the thinking and info on your insurance. We've never had extended warranty but I'm wondering if it wouldn't be a good idea.

  4. It's so fun seeing you and George every Sunday morning! So glad you got your rig up and running and more importantly...all pretty again!
