On Friday afternoon, March 19, I made an appointment to see a 40' Phaeton FSBO in Donelson -- it was a disaster and we stayed only long enough to save the seller embarassmnent. I had found that an 06 Monaco Diplomat was in Cullum-Maxey's inventory so we decided to swing by to see it. We loved the coach even though some of the important features we were looking for were not in the unit. We stopped at Bankston as we left the area and looked at the 40' Phaeton on their lot but it was just not in good condition. We had plans to drive to Gadsden, Alabama on Saturday to see a 36' Phaeton but it sold Friday afternoon so our trip was cancelled. We spent Saturday looking online for any possible coaches. A few in South Florida but we really didn't want to go so far and buy from an individual. Late Saturday afternoon, Bud Maxey called with a price on the Monaco we had seen Friday. We really did like that coach and on Sunday, in torrential rain, we made our way back to Cullum Maxey and arranged to buy "Mona" -- now all we need is a "toad".
