What's in Red Bay, Alabama?

Our new RV - the Allegro Bus!  O baby - is it beautiful.  This one pic below is exactly how it looked when i first saw it.  And click here to see the rest - Just 3o or so pics in total he he he

Red Bay, AL is where the factory is located and 685 miles from our home.  What a trip - I was so excited when i saw our bus for the first time - it was a great feeling.  See the yellow pavement in the pic - they call this area - the yellow-brick road.  I knew i wasn’t in Kansas anymore!  I spent about 2 hours looking it over, then toured the factory and checked out their campground where owners stay while getting their coaches serviced. All the employees were very nice and so helpful. 

Our bus is in “final finish” this week and will go through one more in-depth inspection before a driver takes it to King’s Campers in Wausau, WI.  I was relieved we have no major problems ( or any that I could see ) and i was pleasantly surprised - the leather used this year is a different color.  Previously the sofa/chairs were off white leather for Mineral decor and this year it is a medium taupe.. i like it much better.  You’ll have a hard time telling the leather is “taupe” in the pictures I have - the different camera angles and light - does funny things..but trust me..all the leather is the same and it is medium taupe!  The carpeting looks better this year too - all the colors fabric, carpet, tile floor, etc - look great together. 

So now that I’m back home, i must get busy planning our post delivery trip.  We are pretty sure we’ll come back through Michigan after we leave the dealer.  We want to stop in Mackinaw City and Traverse City and from there - i don’t  know yet.  

Lots to do .. and only a couple weeks left to do it…
