Well ran into a couple of problems. First of all bank And I got wires crossed.. They though I had title I thought they had it.. It was after 5 when we realized mistake.. So bank is looking first thing in the morn.. I'm calling Montana attorney to see if he still has it.. Other than that we just need to locate it .. Coach is all I hoped with exception of a could of things .. Turbo boost only goes to 22lbs. Should be 30.. Mike at Newell thinks charge air cooler .. Could be 2200 or 1000 or nothing if its the gague,MOtorhomes of Texas thinks its the gauge.. Hope they are right I told them I was willing to take the risk.

So staying the night in old coach in nacodches hoping we can track title down in morn.

That's cool! Are they working you a reasonable trade? Tuga's coach should be in overall great condition I would hope since he appeared to stay on top of things. I'm kind of surprised his coach had not gone away sooner.

I agree, Tuga's coach has always been well maintained so that should be a very nice coach. Please share some pictures with us after you take delivery of your new double slide.

Well I own her.. I found title, I actually had it in Arkansas..wanted to fax copies of lien release and title from my bank but MOT would not let me take delivery unless they had it in there hands.. So at 10 am this morn I had one of my kids drive an hour from fort smith towards Tulsa.. Had my other kid who lives In Tulsa drive an hour the other way to meet his brother.. And hustle back to the airport in Tulsa where my mom met him with the lien release and he hopped a 1230 flight to houston. Where my dad met him at 245 and drove him 2 hours to nacodoches..he arrived at 515.. Signed the papers and mot didn't have the title for my coach I bought.. So frustrated that they make me stay an extra day not accept fax copies from my bank.. But expect me to accept copies from them.. Totally unprofessional.. My sales guy Stuart was awesome.. But the back office support and they also promised me to mount my sat dish on my new coach.. Well in the 2 days I was there they didn't have time.so they gave me 300 to have it mounted at home. soo anyway got my coach heading home. Very excited. Just don't like being treated like I'm a liar and they don't live up to the paperwork they expect me too..

Well Marc, congrats buddy on the finish and sorry they put you through some hell but you showed them you were a man or your word on your end.

So, does this coach appear to be in any better condition than the non-slide you traded in?

Hats off to you folks and hope the trip is as smooth as can be for you back up to Arkansas. Look forward to seeing many pictures and hopefully in person some time.

Yes it appears to be in great shape.. I have a few minor issues, boost only goes to 22lbs. May be gauge may be something else, jake brake doesn't seem to kick as hard as my old number 507. Temp gauge on the aqua hot is totally jacked. And I'm to sure about the airs.. I had a super strong one before but maybe these arent quite as cold because it has to cool more areas( slides)..

My 99old and this are both in great shape.. One question ,the inverter on this coach has an on off switch on the inverter itself in the storage bay.it was off when I got it, I switched it on before we left. Is that wrong?

Overall sales experience was great with Stewart, but the rest sucked, what I don't get is I had a cashiers check for over 30k, a letter from my bank with a copy of the title with a lien release.. They googled my bank and called the banker directly. And they made me spend 400$ to fly my son to Houston , inconvenience my entire family, because they didn't trust me for the title and lien release.. But yet they don't have the title for me and I have to wait 4 days..I also agreed to pay to have new tires put on my old coach. I was gonna write them a personal check for 3k and they said theywouldn't let me leave till it cleared. So I went and gave them 3k in cash.. I can provide a 30plus k cashiers check a 100k coach and they won't take my personal check..I can goto Newell and have 10k in work done and they don't even ask for money upfront.. And will take a check..

Heres the other part that upset me, we still had a few issues to resolve before we agreed on Thursday and they yanked. My sat dish off my coach and then wouldn't let me stay in a coach that had tv. So I had to go to a rv park for a night without TV.. I know I'm being a baby but really? And they still couldn't get it installed on the new one by 5 the next day!!

Anyway I'm excited I got the in motion sat up and running, the hd wineguard traveler will be up next week. So I got TV moving and hd siting still..also I am a Disney fan with several collectible,pieces.. The screen door has a silhouette of Mickey in it.. Pretty funny.

My wife is raving about the new one.. Hope to order the 07 enhansements for this one. Going to,sleep in Walmart of ofi30 tonight.. Thanks to everyone on this board for all your help.. Yep I've slid up

Glad it all worked out!
On inverter I think switch on inverter should be off for remote panel to work properly.
Jake may be programmed differently. My 98 selects 2nd gear and kicks pretty hard. Other people have theirs set up to select 4th.
Glad for you, enjoy!
