I have talked about our new motor home, but didn't get time to take pictures and blog it. So, the story follows:
The guys went to look at engine parts, and the gentleman asked them if they wanted to buy a motor home, the hubby says, no not really. So, they proceed to look at parts and then came home. The hubby then proceeds to tell me, that the guy had a motor home for only 5,000 dollars. I asked him if he was crazy for not at least looking at it. Needless to say, we have been looking at campers for when we do engine shows, and had no luck. I told him to give the guy a call back and we would go look at it. It is a 2003, with less than 7,000 miles. It hadn't been moved for 7 years, and hadn't run for 3. The guys charged the batteries, then it started and it just purred. We have had to put 1,500 dollars into it so far. We still have to get the generator fixed and get new tires for it. It is 36.8 feet long and it is going to eat gas. BUT you can't beet 5,000, when it books at around 40,000 dollars. We still have to get the inside set up, but you do that with most campers. We are going to use it for a while and see how it goes, we will either keep it or trade it for something a little smaller. For now, we will keep it and see how we like it. We have never owned a camper before, so it will be an experience for us. Nothing like having a home on wheels.
Have a great day.
