The folks found the process of buying our rig very frustrating. The main problem was the weather. We arrived on a Thursday evening. The folks looked at the rigs, but it was getting late and they said they would come back the next day. The next day, it snowed. The folks made it back to the lot in the afternoon. They picked out the rig they wanted, but Dad wanted to test drive it. They wouldn't let him because the roads were wet. The next day, the weather was bad again. The folks went back to the dealership in the afternoon. They were given some bad news about the interest rate. They have great credit, but since we are full-timers the interest rate for us is higher. They decided to go ahead and fill out the credit app. On Monday, there was no news from the finance company. On Tuesday, they found out that the finance company was charging them an even higher rate than expected. The dealership started making deals with them then. They bought a half a point off of the interest rate and upped the trade-in value of the rig. The folks decided to go for it. They put money down on the rig. About five minutes after they did that, another salesman came in the room and said that another couple wanted our rig. He said he told them it was sold. The folks were told we could not pick up the new rig until Monday. What? That meant we had to cancel our plans for the RV rally in AZ. The folks were really disappointed. On Wednesday, nothing happened. On Thursday, we had a snow/ice storm. On Friday, the roads were dry enough for Dad to take the rig out for a test drive. Saturday, the folks went to Fort Worth for sightseeing and on Sunday, we cleaned the rig.
Now, you are probably wanting to see photos of our new rig. Well, we haven't taken very many because since we have moved in, we have been on the road. Mom planned on posting a few, but now we can't find the camera. BOL! We had it last night, but where is it now? We haven't a clue.
