Leaving the Everglades and heading north it was a short drive to Fort Myers -- but we drew it out by stopping to do laundry! We were set up at the Seminole RV Park by 2:00, and off to the Bruce and Melinda’s new North Trail dealership. Right across the street was the China Nail Salon, and I popped in to find that they could take me right away. My “pink & whites” had grown out a lot since I last had them done, and I was keeping an eye out for a convenient nail redo.
It turned out that today, Monday, June 7th, was Bruce and Melinda’s first day at work at their new dealership – North Trail RV. It is a monster of a dealership, specializing in coaches – the largest Newmar dealership in the world! Yeah, if you have a million bucks to spare . . . .! I don’t know how many units they have for sale, but there are 110 service bays and that pretty much tells the story. The Airstream-side of the dealership has a good inventory of travel trailers and a lot of Airstream coaches on top of that -- it is going through a changeover for new offices. To see all of this Bruce put us in a golf cart for the tour – the place is just too big to do a walk-thru! Tom and I went back to the RV park, Bruce ands Melinda arrived by 6:15, and we headed to HogBody’s Bar & Grill for supper– great wings and ribs and wonderful conversations!
We were so glad for the opportunity to: 1) buy a trailer through Bruce and Melinda at their Ohio Dealership, 2) Take it south for our first Flordication, and 3) visit Bruce and Melinda in their new southern headquarters. We will be seeing them again in June at Cades Cove in the Great Smoky Mountains! I can’t begin to think how lucky North Trails RV is to have them on board!
We don’t go camping any more . . . we go ‘streamin’ ! The “SIlvermine and His” is our 2016 23' Airstream, and ‘streamin’ is the name we use to describe our adventures. Stream along as we document everything from weekend trips to longer summer excursions and full-blown vacations. You know what they say: if you’re not in an Airstream – you’re just camping!
