My girl is in town!

I love you

Being pretty settled on the 2000ish Winnebago Journey, I am constantly searching the online RV sites to learn more about inventory and pricing for that model.

I have also been trying to plan a trip back to PPL in Houston (a three hour drive from here), so that I can test drive the Journey they have in stock.

Yesterday, during my regular search, I found that the nearby used RV dealer that I like, Roman Holiday Motorhomes, now has a 2001 Winnebago Journey! They even have the floorplan that I want with the two front sofas.

So, I am going to try to get down there this week to test drive her.

Come get me


A few things that I wonder about:

  • The price is high at $63K (It is one year newer and has some extras, but is $16K higher than the list price of the one at PPL.)
  • This one is a DL series. What is the difference?
  • It has a 330hp Cat diesel engine that some have told me I’d have trouble getting serviced and/or repaired. The PPL Winnebago Journey has a 275hp Cummins. How big of a deal is that?
  • Does it make sense that the one at PPL is listed as 30amp and the one at Roman Holiday is listed as 50amp?

I’ve sent an email to them to see if I can schedule a test drive. They are closed on Sundays and Mondays, so hopefully I will be test driving my first diesel pusher on Tuesday!


Countup: 20 days of no drinking!

Countdown: 137 days until I move into my RV!
