Donna has retired

I retired TODAY! Ten Forward (the classic CLASSIC 5.0TA) is PERFECT... except I'd love to have an automatic cleaning/waxing exterior and self-cleaning interior. I heard at one time that came with a "cabana boy." Couldn't afford it THEN, can't afford it now. But still am waiting to hear about the new and improved mold improvements.... not sure how that happens when you've already reached perfection (without slides and something less than 25' long).

Dang, I was hoping for a silver lining, like some patient person would give up their spot to wait for the latest and greatest and we could sneak into one this summer. Oh well. Nice option for those who have orders in already, but it could be a tough decision.

Congratulations, Donna! And I know you are so happy that you had already gone through the trouble of getting your 5.0ta. So you are ready to go! Enjoy your retirement.

Congratulations Donna, and enjoy the retirement you worked so hard for. Just stay active and don't let the cobwebs accumulate. I guess that would have to be on you or in the trailer. Loren
