I've been reading this forum since last December--when I got really serious about finding a SMB. But they're a little hard to find out here on the east coast. I made several attempts to buy a used SMB from California; but I too had problems with financing the SMB; because the NADA blue book values weren't up to par with what the owners were asking for. So, I googled SMB and found your forum and at the same time, found a used SMB out in Houston, TX on the PPL consignment lot. The owners were moving overseas; so I got a really good deal on it; and I didn't even finance it!! It's a 2000 Dodge 3500 V8 360 RB with PHT. It's fairly distinctive--due to the fact it has custom paint of a scuba diver on one side and a Mayan temple on the other side. Someone out there probably has seen it. When I can figure out how to post a picture; I will.
My name is Claire and I have 2 teenagers and a cat. I'm an RN and plan to do travel nursing when the kids go to college. That way, I can work and see the country too. I am used to long distance travelling--because my entire family lives in Texas. We are planning a trip to the Southwest and Yellowstone this summer. I'm really enjoying this forum--keep up the good work! Bye for now, Claire Ft. Lauderdale, FL
