Am I the only one that thinks this type of RV looks like a moving van with a fancy paint job?
My daughter let me know today that she has mailed my tag for the Arctic Fox which I should get sometime next week which takes a large load off of my mind since the current tag was going to expire the end of this month. My next concern along those lines will be the truck tag which expires the end of July and will require a diesel emissions inspection in Denver or Colorado Springs before I can buy my new tag, I always dread that whole operation but this year the Bat flu adds a whole new level of dread.
Right outside my kitchen window is a part of the parking lot where the RV show temporarily parks the units that have been sold, I know this because they all have a big "sold" sign stuck on them. Some of the RVs stay there for a few minutes and some stay for several hours, in other words they don't pile up so you can count them at the end of the day and see how many units they've sold.
But just glancing out the window every once in a while I can see that their coming and going fairly often and would make a wild guess that they may have sold 20 or 30 RVs yesterday so I can see why they want to go to the trouble of having these shows. Now I have no way of knowing if 20 or 30 RVs sold in one day is fantastic or absolutely terrible, so the number is kind of meaningless. Maybe on Sunday I will ask a salesman how they did for the weekend, but knowing salesman they will probably say it was a great weekend no matter how bad it was. Optimism is a hallmark of a good salesman.
These units have all been sold.
Everywhere I go it seems like various configurations of these Mercedes vans are extremely popular.
If I wanted to buy an RV, which I don't. And the RV I wanted to buy was a class "A", which it wouldn't be. And I had a pile of money I didn't know what to do with, fat chance of that happening. I would buy this gigantic Tiffin just so I could complain to my boondocking neighbors about how my 100 bottle wine rack rattles when I'm driving over jeep trails.
The RV show has several of these warning signs and hand-washing stations scattered around. I've seen a dozen or more Salesman walking around and they all have facemasks hanging around their neck but I've yet to see anybody wearing one, maybe they wait till their with a client and inside of an RV before they put them on.
This is what I call millionaires Row. These motorhomes are kind of off by themselves, their spaced farther apart than all the other RVs which I suppose gives the aura of exclusivity to these very expensive class A's. I knew I was in a very hoity-toity area when they wouldn't let me take this picture until I put on a tie...... and a pair of pants.
