The RV Road Trip Blog - February 2009
So I decided "what the heck" and called the number in the ad. A very nice gentleman answered and said he still had the camper though several people called about it and some even promised to come look but never did. I asked him these questions... Why are you selling it? What's wrong with it? Where is it located? Can we come inspect it? He was a retiree who bought the camper thinking he and his wife would like it. They took 3 short trips in it and found out they didn't care for the RV life so they wanted to sell it. He stated there was nothing wrong other than he dinged one corner with his riding lawn mower. He was in Gulfport, MS and I was in Jemison, AL.
It came with the Equalizer brand weight distributing hitch, 2 campground directories, 5 other RV related books, dishes that matched the camper, sewer hose and connectors, fresh water hose, water pressure regulator, 90 degree elbow for the water inlet, wheel chocks, and a few other little things. We paid the man $10k, did the paperwork, hooked the trailer up and drove it back to Jemison. We are excited!
Dang, I just thought of something that makes me sad. I have to pay taxes on this thing now. Grrrr.
But anyway, the taxes are paid and I have a tag for the camper. Now I can use it! Woohoo! Time to start planning the maiden voyage. I've heard the best thing to do is camp in your driveway so when you discover what you forgot, you just run into the house and get it. That makes sense but were not going to do it that way, we'll just go to a nearby campground.
