Default Sold the C.........

Wow! When I unloaded the C I saw why the ScanGauge showed 8 mpg. I had so much stuff. Extra parts etc. Hitch accessories etc are heavy! There was so much storage space................

I probably could have got 10 mpg if I carried only the essentials.

Buyer didn't ask about MPG. Funny, when I sold the B+ and a B MPG was one of the first questions.

Different demographics?

Language barrier. Probably thought MPG only applies to Chinese food.

Now you can't put all that stuff into the forthcoming B (or did you already buy a B?).

Selling is such a great relief.

Best two days of your life.... Buying it and Selling it.

The only one that I ever watched head away down the road was the Roadtrek........

What's tough is we sold our power boat we kept docked on 15,000 acre Lake Minnetonka over the summer because after getting our B we seldom used it. The dock was only a block away from our house and convenient. We were grandfathered in at a price about a quarter the price of private docks and gave it up to a waiting list of over 60 people at the time. Our city increased dock slips this year and there are slips available again. Damn it is tempting to buy another boat. Boats like RVs technically make no economic sense but great satisfaction sense. Marko, your addage about best days are legend with former sailboat owners.
