"Finding Catalina"

 Less than 18 hours. Thats how long it took to find Catalina. We had the entire trip to W Virginia figured it out by friday night: start early, hit the road, stop in Baltimore and check one RV and then head to WV and check the second RV and make a decision. And then drive back 6 hours.

But at 10pm on Friday night, I did another search on to see if anything had come in the local market. And there was.

If I recall correctly, the town was Killngworth or something like this. Only 1 hr away from Stamford and the ad sounded great: Coachmen Catalina, sleeps 6, strong engine, good condition and the whole deal.

A change order at 10:30pm Friday night: postpone the 6 hrs trip to WV and check the local RV first.

The result of the visit is shown below: 1988 Coachmen Catalina mounted on a F350 460 V8 7.5L E Engine.
