Lazydays Crown Club

Lazydays (site CD97)
Seffner, Fl

First of all, Gin is doing much better.  Here’s Archie who fixed that wonderful chicken noodle soup that helped with her recovery.

We had a tech try to replace one of the cracked tiles on Monday afternoon but he ended up cracking four other tiles around it just to get it out.  We were a little upset but we knew that LD would take care of it and they did.  They took Tawanda to the work bay on Tuesday and actually had to dislodge one of the slide-outs to be able to replace the tiles.  We stayed in the work bay on Tuesday and Wednesday night because they had to make sure that the tile and grout were properly dried before the slide-out could come back in.  It was nice to still have Wanda to lounge in back at the buddy site.  Today they brought Tawanda back to our site and Karen from house keeping came over and did a great job cleaning everything up.  It feels like home.  There’s only a couple of small things to have done tomorrow and we will probably leave on Monday.  They plan to take Wanda away tomorrow for a little time in the rv spa before she is put on the lot to find a new owner.  She’s been good to us and I think she has a lot more fun left in her.

I have already commented about how nice it is here at Lazydays Crown Club and how wonderful the people are but I want to share a few photos of it here.  Here’s the Crown Club building and Andrea in the reception area.

From the reception area you can go upstairs to the dining area where Archie and his great staff cook three meals a day, six days a week.  Even we can’t eat that much!

There are several offices down the hallways and a few sitting areas to relax in while your coach is in for service.  Here is a pet friendly lobby and one of the many beautiful paintings hanging on the walls.

One office here is for Tiffany, our delivery advisor, but she is usually too busy to be inside.  She keeps the customers happy by scheduling the repair jobs that pop up.

We have met several nice customers here during our two weeks stay but we have shared the dinner table with two couples more than any others.  Don and Jinny are having their coach serviced and have many interesting tales of their lives and awning problems on past rigs.  Georgia and Joe are trading in their Monaco for a Tiffin Bus and have moved most of their stuff over.

We’ve enjoyed washing some clothes tonight and relaxing in Tawanda.  We need a few days to bond with our new home.  It feels real comfortable.  If any of you are thinking about buying a new rv, please consider Lazydays.

Life is what you make of it…don’t sweat the petty things and don’t pet the sweaty things.

Lazy Days looks very neat! We actually are going there for 3 days in February - we'll be in between State Park visits! You got a chuckle out of me about your petty/sweaty things quote! Just heard that one on Idol! hee hee

I'll admit...I heard Steven Tyler say it and it rung a bell. :)

Gail and Rick (Gypsy Turtles) said...

I think that's quite a quote too! :)

If we were in the market for a new coach, you've sold me on Lazy Days! I want to go there just for the driving lessons.

Hope you'll soon be on your way, but don't leave until everything is exactly as it should be :)

We are really glad to hear Gin is feeling better!! Everytime we read about the wonderful service you are receiving, we are really glad we purchased the new rig from LD. Thanks for sharing your experience with us!!

We are heading north on Monday as well. Back to Murrells Inlet to get rid of our stuff:o))

Be sure to give us a shout if you get anywhere close to MI !!!

We had heard so many good things about Lazydays ourselves, that we were going to head down there sometime this year to shop. Then the flood came, and the Hershey RV show, and the rest was history :) I still would like to see the place.

I wonder if the guy that replaced your tiles was the one that replaced two of ours. He did a horrible job matching the grout and one ended up coming back up. You wouldn't think that would be such a hard job.

Glad you're being treated so well. We sure were too. Hope to see you before you head out.

Lazy Days does a very nice job creating a great customer experience. I was not as crazy about their service dept but of course, we bought a used coach and were not CC level. I can't wait to hear about your travels in Tawanda. It is a good time to travel over to Texas !

Great coverage of your resort you Crown Clubbers......I think I heard Gin say Clown Club actually. :-)

Terrific shot of Gin and soup chef. Love his hat!!

Love you both too!!

Glad you both are having a good experience with Lazy Daze. Sure a nice facility and support team. We are looking for a 5'er and are in Calif, we are tempted to check out the Tucson location. Sure like your new motorhome.

It was wonderful seeing you today and the "just like" MH. You're going to love it, being free to go when and where you want. What a great Journey!
