Sweet, you got almost a $1000 "rebate" on your van.

I agree with Jage. It's gone, it's not taking up room in your garage, and you have cash in hand. Sounds like a winning combination.

Yeah, you're right. I shouldn't get greedy. Today I have to figure out how to get the thing unmounted, then box it up and ship it off. I can use the money for another solar panel and a new Thule set-up...

Veg Head,
As an FYI...
Be very careful in removing and shipping this. The dish can easily be damaged. There are special shipping tabs or holders that must be installed prior to shipping. I suggest let the buyer pick it up if possible or call KVH and get instructions how to do this (and the tabs). If the unit goes over a certain angle (maybe 45 degrees?) then the ball bearings can get screwed up. I learned this when I bought mine used.
...hope this helps.
steve

Thanks for the tip...Good advice. I actually saw in the manual saying something about not to tilt it. It's actually getting shipped to FLA so I'll get a hold of KHV before I ship it. Thanks.
