New 139FK owner in Central VA
HellO! been lurking for a couple of weeks and decided it was time to say "Hi"!
I really, really, really lucked out with my brand-new-to-me 2005 Fun Finder 139FK....just happened to mention to a dealer that I wanted something easy and lite for me to travel alone (as a schoolteacher I get off 9 weeks each summer, but my workaholic boyfriend will only take off one week a year) and he told me he had some thing "out back". Thinking he'd show me a popup (some are lite, but many are heavy and NOT easy for a woman alone to set up!) you can imagine my delight when the 139 came into view!
It seems a gentleman in his 70's owned it and loved it (not a mark!) but he just didn't feel like getting up on the roof to check his sealant, so he had a wee tad of leaking into the front wall (on the FK, right over the stove). The dealer apparently didn't want to repair it (gave him a quote of $3000 to replace the front wall). I looked at it and decided that it would probably dry out OK and re-harden somewhat. so I told the dealer to ask the man what he wanted. Lo and behold!!!!!!!...he only wanted $2000! He also brought me a huge packet with his original receipt (he paid $13,571 for it !) and all the original booklets and pamphlets.It is absolutely spotless and not a mark on it! I took it home and opened it up for a couple of weeks, and now the wall is hard again, I sealed the roof, and it's good to go! I still cannot believe my luck!
I will be initiating some modifications on the bed/banquette...that table is waaaay to heavy for me to comfortably negotiate. I have come up with a good solution, and will post pics as I get it together. The BF and I tried it out over Labor Day (boondocking) and it was fabulous! No more wet sheets and humidity! Yeah!
I now be a happy camper!!! (Soooo glad to get out of the tents/popups)!
