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? . 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

Amanda's still with us, and will stay if Earl and Kermit have anything to say about it. :-) And I assure you that Earl will take good care of y'all.  I promise. Smile When Stuart called me to tell me he was resigning, he told me then that he recommended Earl to fill the position.

as those of you who are my facebook buddies know, I've been working my fingers to the bone in Gatlinburg for the past week. Ahh the life of a mom.  Daughter #2 was in a big dance competition down there, so I've been swamped the last few weeks getting that ready.  AND we've had some things going on behind the scenes at Phoenix, and we've changed things up a little bit.  I have a big announcement tomorrow (nothing bad, don't worry!)

But don't worry, I'm building a new blog portion of our site where we will have testimonials, the occasional post from Phoenix Factory--question answering kinds of things, video walkthroughs, and maybe even the occasional guest post if anyone is up to it. :-)  So my little fingers have been busily coding away, but my brain has been stuck in "I've got to get these kids to Gatlinburg and survive almost a week there" mode for a bit, and the creative (design) part of the process was definitely lagging behind.  I'm hoping my head and inspiration is all refreshed now, and you'll see your new testimonials very very soon. 

Until then, thank you SO MUCH, My Lovelies!  Heart Shower  You'll never know how much I appreciate you guys stepping up and showing your units, spreading the word, chipping in when I need it, and holding down the fort when I'm out of town.  Hug2

If y'all would e-mail me some testimonials for the website.  A photo or two (one exterior, one interior, or one on a campsite, etc. ) if you have them would be great as well.  I could use 5-6 sentences total.  I will include your first name and state of residence.

I don't need you to flower it up.  Just be honest.  I'm not going to edit them or anything. I just want real testimonials from real customers either in their dealing with Phoenix or their unit. It doesn't matter if your unit is really new or really old. It doesn't matter if you bought it new or used.  It doesn't matter if you bought it from Phoenix, a dealership, or the previous owner.

You can e-mail it to I will need your real first name and state of residence.  If you want to include your forum name as well (just for my personal information) that would be great, too!
