Galleria of Anticipation
We are preparing and getting ready as the days draw down to pick up our wonderful home on wheels! The anticipation and excitement is definitely growing. We found and purchased our RV (a 2018Coachmen Galleria 24FL Class B) at the Hershey, PA RV show in September2017. After several days at the show we could not resist the newest Galleria for our needs and wants. We had and amazing experience with Steve Fretz from Fretz RV and the Coachmen factory representative Mike Peterson. Mike answered our million and one questions and helped us navigate those last few doubts and uneasy things about class B’s in general. The Coachmen team along with Fretz RV helped to make our dream of RV living possible. We left the show with a build date of “end of November early December” but were excited to find she was going to be completed before schedule with a “birthday” of 10 November(Semper Fi.) We have been blessed to have received photos from the factory of our gorgeous baby during the build process as we told them our plan to keep our family and friends in the loop on our adventures in RVing.
Typically,when you buy an RV you take delivery of it from the RV dealership, but as we are slightly obsessed with the idea of factory tours we have opted to pick up our RV from the manufacture in Indiana. So we began planning our big pre-RVadventure. It coincided with one of our favorite cousins getting married in TX we decided to create a Bermuda land triangle. Traveling from NC to TX, TX to IN, and finally IN back to NC.
We will be tent camping to not only give us the opportunity to check out the RV sites along the way, but to really create even more gratitude for our RV. The way we see it since we still have a stick built home (come on offers!) it will make for a better transition into our RV if we rough it a bit beforehand. ☺ Plus we get to eat s’mores, save money, test out all the apps we’ve been downloading, see more nature and really test out or packing skills.
