SUMMER 2010

Summer Road Trip As we prepared for our 2010 Millennium Summer Road trip, we paused to reflect on family vacations of yester years. Family trips usually started with Dad fueling up the family station wagon and Mom frying up a batch of chicken for the road. With the cooler full of RC cola, each of the kids with their favorite pillows would pile into the back, staking their claim on any space not filled with suitcases and spare tires! And of course, we always broke down in the middle of nowhere with a flat tire or an overheated radiator. Yes, we could always expect quite an adventure!

planning we were ready to roll! Waving goodbye, we breathed a sigh of relief as we hit the road. We laughed out loud wondering “How did we manage without motor homes, Map Quest and in motion satellite TV back in the day” when we had only sing along’s and “punch buggy” to keep the kids busy? It never failed, just as we got to “32 bottles of beer on the wall”, somebody was pinching somebody and Mom’s arm would come flailing into the backseat to make peace as Dad threatened, “Don’t make me pull this car over!!” Ahhh, the good ole’ days! As we approached Atlanta, we checked our GPS, yep, right on schedule! And then we heard a panicked cry from the rear of the coach “did anyone pack toilet paper?!!” Maybe we weren’t quit as prepared as we thought. Thankfully, there was a rest stop in sight…..disaster narrowly averted!! With TP now added to the pre-trip inspection we headed north. Somehow we managed to hit downtown Atlanta at rush hour and it was there that we learned the first of many lessons...the Girl Bus can definitely loose the Boy Bus if there is too much chattering going on!! Yep, the Boy’s Bus was there one minute and gone the next. Unexplainable! But Millennium gals are known for their resourcefulness and somehow managed to beat the convoy to the Tennessee line!

the evening. This beautiful part of our country is untouched by time, where you can still buy cherries at road side stands using the honor system. With the miles of driving behind us we began to unwind and visit with friends. Time slipped away and relaxation settled in. The time honored traditions of good food, great road stories and even a S’more or two caused us all to slow down a bit and begin to enjoy our journey! But, as every RV’er knows, the road begins to beckon and the time to move along. As we continued along our way and completed what would be a three week Road Trip Extravaganza, we noticed a subtle change begin to occur. Instead of watching the GPS, we read roadside signs out loud. We determined that Map Quest lies and you get much better directions from farmers at country stores. And you never know what you’ll find on the back roads and most importantly, we learned that the treasures of any great road trip are the friends you meet along the way. At the end of the summer, whether in a station wagon or a Millennium, we all yearn for a good road trip. For us here at Millennium it became less about the destination and more about the journey. Whatever destination you have in mind for your Summer Road Trip we hope your journey is full of adventure and you find a few of your own treasures along the way!

As we approached Northern Michigan, the lapping waters along the shores invited us to pull over, take a stroll and dip our toes into the cool waters of Lake Michigan. It was so tempting; we couldn’t resist, so we made a quick stop before heading into the resort for

Terry and Kristin are like four leaf clovers; hard to find but you feel lucky when you do! Hometown: Terry and Kristin are from Lino Lakes, Minnesota. “Minnesota has been known to have some pretty cold winters, but the gorgeous summers keep it our home!” How long have you been RVing? We decided to start RVing almost 3 years ago. We go just about everywhere we want to and even take our stacker along when we need our extra toys. Kristin & Terry

What do you enjoy most about your Millennium? We searched for two years before Kristin and I found our coach. Our Millennium was love at first sight! We like the fact that we can take spur of the moment trips even if it’s just over the weekend.

What are some of your favorite places to go in your RV? We’re members of the Prevost Owners Group so we like to attend their rallies and we also always look forward to a retreat to the mountains. If there’s a car or motorcycle race going on, be sure to look for us, we’ll most likely be there! Who likes to drive and who likes to direct? I do all the driving and with Kristin as our “expert navigator” we can sometimes drive 800 + miles in one shot!” Most memorable moment RVing? We will never forget the time we drove across the state of Iowa in a blizzard of 18 below, what an experience that was!! Hobbies – Living in the land of 10,000 lakes, Terry fishes all year round and he also enjoys golfing, hunting and riding his motorcycle. Kristin finds pleasure in gardening and likes to run every day. But our greatest joy is traveling in our Millennium! Other interesting facts – We are proud parents of two children, 24 yr old Shannon and 21 yr old Tyler who are both college students. And we also have one grandchild, our 4 yr old Gracie. Millennium Luxury Coaches continues to grow because of customer satisfaction, something that is very important to us. We’re glad to have met the great people of Millennium and the hundreds of wonderful, interesting people we have met along the way! We have to agree,no matter where you wander, no matter where you roam, you meet the most wonderful people! Terry and Kristin, we are excited to have you as part of the Millennium family!!

NewcoaST FINaNcIaL SeRvIceS TakeS The LeaD Rv LeNDINg! We’re so excited about some of the great things happening in the RV lending sector of our industry. We recently spoke with Newcoast Financial Services, a leading finance firm specializing in the recreational vehicle industry, about some of the changes occurring in the finance world. Headquartered in Clearwater, Fla., Newcoast has been offering retail financing services to the recreational vehicle industry since 2001. Newcoast can typically provide both fixed and adjustable interest rate options to new and pre-owned motor coach buyers. Other services include loan refinancing and extended service protection plans. “It has been an enjoyable adventure spreading the word about Newcoast over the past several years” said Mike Lynch, Manager of Recreational Vehicle Lending for Newcoast. “Twenty-four states and seventy-three shows and rallies thus far. I have really enjoyed the opportunity to personally meet with so many motor coach owners as they secure financing for their purchases.” With purchase activity, recent reductions in interest rates have sparked a surge of refinance requests, with many customers taking advantage of the new lower rates.

“The minimal costs associated with refinancing has made this option attractive to many people,” said Lynch. “Since there are no application fees or origination points, my customers often choose to refinance, even for just a slight reduction in rate.” They’ve recently announced the launch of a new website: www.Newcoast.com. The website has been designed to educate RV clients on how Newcoast can provide specialized financing programs to meet their unique needs. Newcoast employs a staff of motor coach underwriting specialists with the expertise and knowledge to assure your loan process flows smoothly. The entire staff invites you to contact Newcoast with any financing questions, or stop by and visit with Mike Lynch at one of the many upcoming shows and rallies. We will see you down the road!

“our Finicky-est Friends!” Hi, I’m Ginger the cute 13 yr old “Diva”, and the Golden Retriever is my 7 yr old brother Hank, a big party animal who always runs around with a tennis ball in his mouth… he’s so embarrassing!! I would rather chase bubbles or point at the beautiful Dragon flies; I think that’s much more mature. I like the finer things in life and that’s why we have a Millennium! My mom and dad (Karin and Tom) bought it for us so that we could go to our favorite places, like the mountains, NASCAR Races and of course the beach (I am always mistaken for a beach babe). And while I’m lying on the beach striking the perfect pose, Hank wants to play fetch and fetch and then more fetch! I don’t know how my parents keep up with him! We are full timers so we are always on the road. Hank loves to sit right up front on the carpeted step cover by mom and I prefer the galley where I can stretch out for a long beauty nap. We love our Millennium, it’s our perfect home on wheels! If you don’t see us at our home base in Port St. Lucie Florida, we’re probably off on another adventure!
