This is the best place in the world for this...
We stopped at another RV dealer yesterday. Just looking, getting ideas. The salesman was a former New Yorker, who was totally enamored with life in the desert... I was about to melt, going in and out of some RVs they had on the lot, he had obviously acclimated a lone time ago.
When I asked about one particular used RV, he said what you see in the title of this post. He said, "Look around us - you are right in the middle of Sun City, Sun City West, Sun City Grand... just a few blocks away is the biggest storage lot in the country. There are so many people here who buy things and don't use them. You can find whatever you want in an RV. Somebody dies or can't drive anymore, it becomes your good fortune!"
Well, that is one way to look at it.
Then he went on to tell me about the Miata he bought a couple weeks ago: "This thing is like brand new - it was garage kept. The top doesn't have any wear on it. There is only one little ping by the door... where the guy bumped it with his oxygen bottle!"
Not sure why that struck me as funny.
