VERY nicely kept Clipper, somebody is going to get a gem when they purchase yours. I'm looking for any possible friends to but it because I think it's such a nice rig.
 Where did you get the front grill? Real sharp!
 Good luck on the sale..surely you will miss the ol Rig. Did you give up RVing, or buy another RV?
Do share !

Thank You.  Funny you referred to it as a 'Gem', we've called it that since we bought it in 1998.  The front grill was on it when we bought it.

We've been ACOC members most of that time too, but haven't been able to attend many functions.  We're still working and have elderly parents that need care so we just can't use it much.  We've just decided the upkeep -vs- use is too high for us.  Yes, we will miss it a bit, but it needs to be used more!

I've posted on Craigslist too, so if you know of anyone interested there are more pictures there.

We sold it!  Nice, young couple from Fremont.  We suggested they join the Club and pick your brains about maintenance and repairs.

Take Care!

Congratulations...I think?!  All good things must pass.
   I hope you have lots of great memories in your old Clipper,  and are comfortable in knowing it has gone to good hands that will make more memories to keep, like you!
