Still working on getting this set up.  You wouldn't believe how crazy busy it's been around here!  But busy is good!  Cheer

I have a lady in Punta Gorda, FL who is interested in a 2552 and would love to see a Phoenix in person.  Is there anyone who can show her a unit?

Ron, I don't think I caught any pictures before of the new dinette seating.  I love the contrast in texture and pattern/color.  Great job!

I use felt ones outside for various things and they do hold up quite well.  I think they dampen (or nullify) the noise very well also, in addition to just protecting the surface from the physical impact.

Thanks. I don't know if it will make a difference in sales, because Stuart's ads were very successful, but it should definitely stop me from getting nasty e-mails like the one I got a few days ago over the "probably" typo.  It just goes to show you that no matter what you think you know, there's always something to be learned from someone who knows more. He definitely knew/knows his market.

OK, I found 176 instances of "PROBOPLY" in the database and changed it to "probably"  I also fixed the crazy capitalization and removed about a dozen extra !!!'s while I was in there. I'm not going to clean up anything else, but maybe this will keep poor Earl from getting hate mail about the old "Proboply" 's when people find them.  LOL

OK. Thank you, JimDenny.  I hope that is it.  Those are Stuart's ads.  If you look at all of the ones except the used 3100, you'll see that most of them look like that, and that "proboply" is in most of them. He and I had much different styles and tastes in ads.  My position was always that people spending a lot of money buying a classy motorhome wanted tasteful, classy ads.  His position was that the louder, brighter, flashier the ad, the better response it got.  I have to say that he was right. Much to my consternation, the more spinning aliens and flashing arrows there were, the more e-mails and phone calls and clicks an ad rendered. Since it defied everything I knew about marketing, I conceded that Stuart knew his market better than I did, and I gave him  a custom inventory lister that allowed him to present the inventory exactly how he wanted to do it.  We received more than one e-mail about "proboply" over the years, but he never changed it.  I don't know if the e-mails eventually turned into sales, or what.  shrug

In any case, Earl's tastes are much more mellow. I hope it is met with as much success as the "Crazy Eddy's Tent Sale" ads were.  LOL  I'm cautiously optimistic, but also a little nervous.  Embarrassed

I wonder if I can do a sitewide find and replace for that...

edited to change wording that made it sound like I "allowed" Stuart to do what he wanted, when what I really mean was I physically gave him (built him) a custom inventory lister to allow him to do what was working for him.

We were really sad to see Amanda go. We knew that we wouldn't be able to keep someone as wonderful and young as her forever. Her leaving caught us by quite a surprise. She is really missed, but we are happy for her.

Dick, can you tell me which 3100 page you found to be so embarrassing? I proofed the used 2010 one.  All the others were designed and put up by Stuart. The only thing we changed was in the database we took out the call to the flashing alien, and we changed the e-mail address.

Please excuse the choppy footage.  The weather wasn't cooperating, and Earl was getting used to a new camera. Many more videos coming as units come off the line!  And I hear a new construction video is in the works!

Want to see a walkthrough inside and out of a like-new 2010 3100? http://youtu.be/zYrfKUtMNZE . Sleeps up to 6. Call for more info.

No, No, No...Silly.  They drink they wine so that the smell of the bleach doesn't bother them so bad.  Wink

And as at least one of you who has seen photos of me has already wondered about, the answer is "yes.  Earl is my father, and yes, we do look a lot alike."  LOL
