The moment I saw it yesterday I became excited again and those questions disappeared. What's the point on dwelling on them? It's too late. We bought it. It's ours. I have to remind myself that this wasn't a spur of the moment decision. We've been leading up to this for the past couple of years. Living full time in our coach and traveling is going to be a more enjoyable life than spending our days going to jobs that we don't like in order to pay for our home that is too big for us, and to pay for the useless 'stuff' we've managed to fill it with. A home that we don't get to enjoy because we spend our time working to pay for.
The seller and I took care of the paperwork while Brian attached the windshield wipers we had purchased on our way up to get it since the forecast called for rain. $35. And so it begins.
Brian was super nervous about his first time behind the wheel of a motorhome. He drove it for about 10 minutes on a test drive last week but this was going to be a 45 minute drive, on the freeway, in the rain. He did great and got us home safely. He parked it on the street, turned it off and opened our gate to back it into the back yard. When he went to start it again, it struggled and didn't start. Sounded like a dead battery. I thought "Oh great! Here we go. We just bought a piece of junk." Turns out it was a loose battery cable and Brian got it into our yard like he'd done it a hundred times before.
Here are some pics. We will be doing some remodeling because we feel that some of it is "god awful" so stay tuned for the upgrades.
The couch folds down into a bed.
The captains chairs swivel around and the little table is removable and there is a larger table to be put in its place.
"10-4 big buddy". Yes, we have a cb.
Yes, that is a built in blender! There are other gadgets offered for it online like a food processor and coffee grinder.
The bathroom. Which will be getting a makeover.
Lots of built in storage and a walk way next to the bed which was a plus for me. Part of the counter folds up and makes a vanity. I don't plan on using that but it's a cool feature. I WILL be using the built in hamper though.
