Sold it... Bah bye...!!

Opportunity and quick decision earlier this week put a newer 1150 in our hands. Move in time.. ugh.

Congrats! What year was you previous 1150? (I'm thinking maybe a 2013 based on the graphics)

I had a 2010 811 that I bought new in November of 2009. Last January, February and March I kept looking at new AFs, then I'd tell myself My 811 was perfect. I watched the inventory dwindle to virtually nothing at all the dealers in WA and Oregon. Then I'd start shopping again.
Finally I decided "opportunity knocks" and put my 811 up for sale in August knowing that I could get top dollar for it.
First guy that came and looked at it drove to Spokane from Orondo, WA and bought it. I found a sweet 2018 992 in Moses Lake prior to selling my 811 and snatched it up.

I like the exterior colors on the 2018/2019. I also don't like the gray AF.
Arctic not gray!

2011..


lol, can't stand the gray either. Sorta the same thought process here; we weren't really looking, but it was on the horizon. Prices are all pretty much relative, as in sell high, buy high, or the reverse, so it was a moot point.

Found the 18 which had some items that I liked better, wife, not so much. Life is give and take and she thought it was a good deal/time too. '18 WB this time


'16 F550 CC, 4x4 with Link Ultraride air suspension, '18 AF 1150. Just so we can play with our snowmobiles, dirt bikes and fishing boat. And new 20' tag along...kayaks, bikes, mc's and extra water and food!!

Finished testing the fresh water plumbing after completing the hand formed copper pipe that is in the bathroom for the shower assembly (This was done by design for the looks, I'll be polishing and sealing the copper and brass later so that it remains glossy), made a wet mess as part of the process and am about a 1/3 of the way into framing in the lower cabinets in the kitchen area [emoticon].

The lower kitchen cabinets are now 50% complete framing-wise. I still need to build the insulation box that's going in around the stove to help keep the oven heat from spreading too much into the surrounding cabinet space (due to the tight confines, I want to be doubly sure that the wires and pipes that have to pass below and behind the stove are shielded from any excess heat when the oven is in use).

Finished up my Victron Energy BMV-712 Smart Battery Monitor and Victron Energy Orion-Tr Smart 12/12-Volt 30 amp 360-Watt DC-DC Charger, Isolated (Bluetooth) install today.

Even though the BMV is Bluetooth, and accessible via the smart phone, I still mounted the display on the status wall for quick viewing. Turned out sweet!

Took delivery of my new 2022 Travelaire 90W camper 10 days ago and have just got back from a week shakedown camping. Everything pretty well perfect except the mattress so have just installed a 3" memory foam topper. Seems like this will do the trick.

Finsisted the sewer plumbing and did a successful water test on the kitchen sink.

I took my camper off my truck today.

So I can go to SLC tomorrow and pick up a Porsche 914 from a friend for a friend.
