Well now that I had a night sleep, I'm a bit less nervous. It did take me a long time and a sleep aid to finally drop off, but I felt so much better this morning.
The Alfa should be at the Livermore CA La Mesa by tuesday, but I won't get up to see it until Thursday, Friday, or Saturday depending on when Craig wants to go, or if I want to go up alone first.
I am flying down to San Diego to see our daughter and grandsons on Sunday, and will be returning on Wednesday.
Before this one came up she had asked if I wanted to go look at some RVs on Sunday, and told the boys we were going to do that. They are very excited and curious since they have never seen the inside of one of those big boxes.
In any event it is going to be a long tense week.
As of today, I am much calmer about if "this is the one" or not. I know we cannot be pushed to purchase one that is not just right, and I am quite comfortable about the "refundable" deposit for two reasons:
1. It is on my American Express and American Express takes good care of it's customers. And
2. There is at least one major fact about the rig that is on the printed version of the listing and what the salesman told me on the phone, that is not true.
We wanted a 35' for parking reasons. The Alfa is listed on their ad as 35' length. He told me it was a 35'. But in the specifications that I have found online, they did not make a 35'. The specs say the shortest the made was 37'5"
Quite honestly, this will not make a difference if we really love the coach, but it will make it easy to get out of the deal if we don't and don't have any better reasons.
I need to keep these things in mind to stay calm.
Craig seems to be doing OK with all of this. He doesn't show excitement or worry, but I can tell he isn't sleeping all that well either.
