Excited and Scared
Thursday, February 02, 2012
Well, we jumped off the deep end today! On the way home from radiation we go past 2 rv dealers and one had just the kind of rv that we have been searching for!!! I was in the wrong lane to pull in so had to go down and turn around and go back and check it out. We weren't sure if it was in for repairs or was for sale, but lo and behold, it was on consignment.
We have been toying with the idea of getting a small rv for over a year but didn't feel it was something we could do while we were caring for dad. We hate staying in motels when we travel, we lived in our rv for 6 years before settling down so we like having our own bed and being able to fix our own meals instead of having to eat out all the time.
This was exactly what we were looking for and inside it is in excellent shape for a 1997. It has only had 2 previous owners and the last one had it repainted just a year ago, put new tires on it and new batteries and it has a new transmission that is just 6 mo old. We knew that was the weak spot on these so glad it has already been taken care of. It isn't much bigger than a van but has a 2 burner stove, a microwave and a small refrigerator. One of the big things we wanted was a generator and a bathroom which it has, but the bathroom is tiny!
When we get it, I will post pics.
We didn't want to make this decision until after DH was thru treatment, but if we hadn't done this today, there was another young man standing there waiting to make an offer so we beat him in by just a few minutes!
To show you how we think things are meant to be, we had planned to go today to see our friend who had open heart surgery nearly 2 weeks ago, but that fell thru so we came home a different way today and saw this. I would say it was meant to be!!!!
