Smile Hello from the Bay Area! (West Coast)

Hi! My husband and I bought our first RV in February of this year. I've been through my first "side-swiping" windstorm and I kept it on the road! Phew. We're looking forward to traveling in the Pacific Northwest and then cross country to take our daughter to college.

Welcome neighbor! We're between the Googleplex and SunQuentin/Facebook.

Did you buy from Seegrins? We did. What a joke that was. They were so desperate to get us to buy something before leaving! The salesman kept saying the age old slimy used car salesman line... "What's it going to take to get you in a new motorhome today?" lol. So I offered him $60k for the $90k Vegas we were sitting in at the time! He actually went to his manager with my super low ball offer. haha. We were actually quite amused since I've worked in car dealerships for 3 decades and know all the tricks they use. I doubt seriously if I'll ever go back there for anything. Of course they do keep sending us notices to bring our rig back in for service or the engine is going to self destruct.

Hi Neighbors! Thank you. We're rookie RV'rs and are looking forward to it. My hubbie is still working full-time, but we hope to take a few trips this summer.

Take care.

Thank you! We're over on the Milpitas side of the bay.

Yep, we sure did buy from Seegrins. They were very nice to us... 'salesman tricks' and all. My hubbie was pretty tough on them. He negotiates contracts for a living! The poor guy had to go to his manager several times. We got ours for $70k, so it wasn't too far off what you went for!

Have a good summer!

That's a great price for an even greater rig! Congratulations!
(Can I borrow your Hubby for the next time I buy a car? )
