Sunday, November 11 - New Rig (Tucson/Gold Canyon, AZ)


Starting  where we left off.

We left from breakfast and went straight to Lazydays RV in Tucson AZ. They had a 2008 Mobile Suites Model 36SB3 for sale. That was the only rig we wanted to see.



We knew this was the rig for us. We have always wanted a Mobile Suites we just needed to see if we could work out the money.

Jane was our sales person so we went back to her office. They gave us a price, we were interested, as it was within our price range.

This being the last day of the month they wanted to make their sales quota so they offered us a deal we couldn’t refuse. The only hiccup was that we needed to go back to Gold Canyon and get our Alpine and bring it back to Tucson tonight, because they needed the trade in to be on property to make the deal.

By this time it was 2:30PM and we drove back to Gold Canyon, packed up the rig and drove back to Lazydays. It was 8:15pm by this time. They did a walk through our rig at the service department and were very pleased with our Alpine.

We went back to the finance office to do the necessary paper work and we now owned a Double Tree 5th wheel!

They put us up in the campground which was very nice. It had bushes that separated you from your neighbor, a concrete patio with table and chairs and a grassy area. They had a nice club house with a restaurant.

By the time we were set up we were exhausted. We had not eaten since breakfast. I warmed up some left over hot dogs, then we went to bed.

Over the next couple of days we waited for them to do a few items we wanted them to do and to clean the rig.

Finally on Saturday about 3pm we were moved to the transition area so we could move into our new home. One of the things we wanted to have done was to cut the bed down from a King size to a Queen size. We wanted to use our existing queen size air mattress.

That was the 1st thing we moved. We worked until around 7pm moving things in. I made sure we had the necessary things so that we could sleep in our new home that night.

We love it already!!

On Sunday Bob and Barb / Gary and Darlene and Riley their dog drove up to see our new rig. They helped us move!! It was sooo nice of them and they worked really hard. I was so grateful we were just about finished by 2:00. Thanks for all your help!!!


We were all hungry so we drove over to Subway for a sandwich.

We waited on Monday for them to come and set up the satellite receiver (which was the last thing they needed to do). By the time they were finished it was too late to travel.

We waited until Tuesday morning and headed back to Gold Canyon.

We got parked and started to set up. Bob, Janet, Ed and Marilyn came by to welcome us back and E&M brought us dinner. Thanks so much guys!

Now the days are getting confusing, as to which day it was.

One day we went over to E&M for an afternoon to visit with Greg and Barb Jones. it was nice to see them again and get caught up.

One day we hosted a happy hour so everyone could see the rig all set-up.

Another day we met the gang at a local Mexican restaurant for lunch.  Friday morning we met Bob and Ed at the Buzz.

Saturday night E&M had us over for dinner and to meet Trent and Teresa. Ed made beef vegetable soup, Janet brought deli sandwiches and I made a pineapple upside down cake.

It was the coldest day we have had since we have been here. We ate dinner outside then went inside to have dessert and warm up.

We had a great time as always!



Sunday Ed, Marilyn, Bob Jesse and I went to the swap meet. We all walked around looking at all the stuff for sale and just having a fun time.

After Marilyn rode with me, we went to Bed Bath and Beyond so I could find a bedspread for our bed. I found one I liked and it was on sale!.

Here are some pictures of our new home:
