To Knoxville to pick up new Mobile Suites

John got in after 2:30 a.m. this morning and went to bed for a short while before we had to get up and get back on the road to Knoxville, TN.  We finally departed around 10:00 a.m. this morning.  John and I both like the new truck.  I love those air ride seats.  Sure makes those bumps easier.

002 The weather was nasty this morning as we headed out.  It rained on and off until we got closer to Knoxville.

003 John was pretending to sleep and drive.  He actually had his left eye open and was making me think he was sleepy.  He probably was tired enough to go to sleep after yesterdays travels. LOL

004 You can tell John is happy with this truck.

We finally arrived in Knoxville, TN around 7:30 p.m.  Karen, the lady who has been handling our new Mobile Suites deal was still at the office.  They had our RV hooked up and ready for us to spend the night.  Karen and Butch are the operators of RV’s for Less and have been great to deal with. Tomorrow we have the official walk through and, of course,  the paper work.

John and I went into town to eat and make a Wal-mart run.  We came directly back to the camper hoping to get to bed early.  Well it is after 10:30 so I guess we won’t be getting to bed early. LOL

Below are a few pictures of the interior.  The wood finish is cherry which is a little darker than the old one.  More pictures to come.  I think I will go to bed now.




Laugh everyday.  Happy trails.  Stay safe.
