We have loved following this transition, Howard and Linda! Looking forward to the pictures of your new home interior.

It seems you have a horseshoe somewhere because everything has been going just too smoothly! Glad to see the transition is complete.

I really appreciate the details you always provide. How did you find your new Liberty? It's amazing how far afield you sell and buy.

Sounds like Linda worked her magic in your MH to make it comfortable and yours. Congrats on finding a new Jeep so quickly:)

I have a telescoping ladder, which is great, but extremely sensitive to any fine dirt getting in between sections, and caused it to be very difficult to extend or retract. I personally would not buy another one. This is my second one (first was under warranty) and I am always very careful about minimizing any dirt on it.

One correction to your post it was Steve that put your new Faucet in.

Wow that’s so much stuff. I wondered how the registration for Florida was going to work. We were told that we had to get the vehicle VIN verified in person in Florida, have that changed that rule or did we misunderstand it at the time?. We are curious in case we decide to get a second vehicle,e at some point would we need to drive it all the way back to get registered?.


Sheesh. Yes, it was Steve. Correction made.

The VIN verification can be done by any Law Enforcement Officer - it does not specify that it has to be in Florida.

Or the VIN can be verified by an out-of-state Licensed Dealer, but the verification has to be submitted on their letterhead stationary.

Getting A Hassle Free Title FAQs

What should I know about VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) Verification?
When applying for a title on a motor vehicle previously registered or titled in another state, the VIN on the actual motor vehicle must be checked to ensure that the vehicle is the same as the one described on the proof of ownership.

The VIN must be physically inspected by one of the following:

A law enforcement officer from any state.
A licensed Florida or out of state motor vehicle dealer.
A county tax collector employee or Division of Motor Vehicle Compliance Examiner.
Provost Marshal or commissioned officer in active military service, with a rank of 2nd lieutenant or higher.
Form HSMV 82042, Part A may be completed and signed. The form is also available at your local tax collector’s office.


I searched Cars.com, Autotrader.com, CarGurus.com, and Craigslist-Las Vegas looking for a 4WD 2003 - 2007 Jeep Liberty. I kept expanding the search parameters (25 miles, 50 miles, 100 miles, 200 miles) to see what would come up.

Actually, I found this Jeep through Craigslist as they show items that fit the search that are located in nearby Craigslist markets. It had just been posted, so, once again, we got lucky. :)

Homey, sounds like a hip name maybe. Just picking. We were amazed in Feb. when we changed Domiciles how quick the tittles from Truck which was financed with Ford and the RV was in Cary, NC, that only three weeks to the date we got our notification that all was done and next morning we went and had to face the drivers license lady. That was not a good experience. She gave us a very hard time. She had an attitude about the change of address. We got it done in Clay County. She told us we couldn't use the new address on our driver license. We got the drivers license of course but boy ole boy I was beginning to sweat for a second if we had a problem. We have no address on our license, just the driver license ID and address is the plate number off truck.
