I just recent closed a deal upon a 1990 34' Pace Arrow class A motorhome.
It belongs to the owner of the company I work for in Alaska
and last summer while it was in Alaska
they paid me to go through it completely for a long road trip south to Yuma AZ, new batteries, a solar
panel array, new brakes, a roof seal job, AC repairs
and some minor interior
After it was driven to Yuma the owner for some reason now feels compelled to sell it and me having worked on it recently and as his employee for the last 17 years we made a deal, for now it stays in Yuma on his ranch, next winter when I am seasonally laid off here in Alaska I will fly down there, naturally being closer to the San Joaquin Delta I may yet drive the RV there and try again to look for the lucky deal of a boat, but its almost a flip of the coin should I instead head
to Galveston or Florida
The turnoff of getting into boating
in CA is CA itself, a dying state with too much regulation, Florida
offers more freedom though it can have weather
may be a good compromise as long as its away from Houston
as it has seriously gone downhill, I have lived there for four years, since Katrina it has gone rotten with refugees.
Now I have an onshore mobile living quarters, now to decide where to hole up for the next stage of the project
and what kind of boat. I'm pretty sure it will wind
up being the west coast
of Florida as storing the RV there is cheap
during the summer when I am working in Alaska.
