[:(] It is with deep sadness that I have to say goodbye to my 08 Fleetwood Arcadia. As much as I would have liked to keep it, I don't think it made sense to keep it anymore for just a couple trips per year. The money will go toward paying off the rest of the Suburban which will help out greatly.
My camping days aren't over by any means, we have our tent or most likely will rent a trailer.

I am sad with you. Just keep on keeping on and use tent or rent. Hoping a great pup deal will land in your lap. From the show me state.

Sorry to hear that. Glad to hear that you can still tent camp. For me, giving up the PUP would end that. Just can't enjoy camping anymore using a tent. Body just can't handle it anymore. No fun when you're aching all day after a couple of nights.

Maybe you could pick up an older model pup and still be able to camp. You can find some really good deals if your handy and can do some repairs. We got ours for $200 and did the repairs ourselves. With some elbow grease and time, we now have a pretty good camper to enjoy.

I saw that you were asking $10,500 for it. If you don't mind me asking, how much did you sell it for? I ALMOST bought a 2007 Arcadia, here in Texas for a lot less. Im curious how bad much the prices are over there.

I listed on Craigslist for $11,500 and got $11,000 CASH. I only listed a little lower on the forum on accident but would have honored it anyway. Gotta love livin in Cali.....everything is expensive

Getting an older model or something cheaper wasn't the issue. The pup has been paid off since day 1. I was just having a hard time storing all year long in the garage (I have no side yard parking and too cheap to pay for storage). It's just that for just a few trips a year I'll rent an rv. Besides, I want to do more trip besides camping. Maybe someday when I retire I'll change my mind.
For now, it is what it is.

We had an older PUP back in the late 90's that had a leaky roof and got a significant amount of damage. For a lot of reasons, we decided not to replace it immediately. We spent a number of years tent camping, until we bought the pup 2 seasons ago. Circumstances change, but that won't prevent you from having fun.

WOW.. We paid $250 for out first one, had it 5 years and sold it for $250 ! Then we bought the current one for $3000 in 2006(I think). This is like the Taj Mahal for us. I can see where they needed to sell the one for $11K !! Found ours on Craigslist but you have to watch daily. We committed to buy the first night it was listed.

He said it was paid for from day one. Huge chunk of cash tied up for only a few days. I get it.

Enjoy your other travels!
