Well, I’m back. I mostly survived the Holidays. Everyone in my family got sick except me (knock on wood), my dad and my nephew’s fiance. Neat! Other than that, it was enjoyable. Ate way too much but that’s part of the fun is it not? Anyway, it’s back to business and time to begin forging ahead.
I’d planned a series of posts about selecting RVs. The ins and outs, the pros and cons, of the various types. But then, Jen and I had a conversation. We’d both love to get a fancy class A and a Jeep to tow behind it but what if we couldn’t. Were saving money to help out but what if things happen and that doesn’t work out? What then. Neither of us are willing to abandon this dream.
So we discussed what we could live with if a class A wasn’t doable. A fifth wheel has always been a close second. In fact, the floor plan that so far Jen has liked the best was in a fifth wheel. But then we wondered what if a late model fifth wheel and a new diesel truck weren’t in the cards. What then? Is buying an older unit, of whatever type, that needs some TLC an option. I don’t want to rebuild a rig but some cosmetic stuff might be acceptable.
Then again, isn’t the point to get out on the road? I know of people doing it in everything from old Airstreams, which I personally thing are cool as hell, to van conversions to this one guy I saw living out of a Jeep and a utility trailer. Who knows what we’ll end up with. I hope life takes the turns we want and we can do this the way we want but if not, there’s options out there.
And that leads me into my series of posts on RVs. Pros and cons from our point of view that might help you decide and sparks some comments. In twelve to eighteen months, this won’t be theory. We’ll be shopping. Kind of exciting, kind of scary but hopefully, all this planning will get us what we want no matter what happens between now and then.
