Today is the day! Buying the RV!!
So I found this ad on the good trusty Craigslist, it’s only the second one I looked at. It sounded great, looked solid (“no rust or leaks!”), and the guy who had worked on it so far was astoundingly cool. I always have to remember, this will be my *home*! Not a vehicle for a weekend getaway, or a road trip only. So this has to be it!
Tom came with & chatted with Ian, the dude who sold it, about technical details (aka the Tim Taylor talk) while I inspected the interior. You know you like a place when you start to mentally revamping it to your likes. Crossing fingers the whole time until Tom and I drove back home and he gave me the rundown. Top notch. For its age. I was so relieved!
Had my car mechanic friend Shayne have another look at the engine (“Cloe, if I had the money I would buy it right now, that’s how great the condition is!”) and after Tom drove to New Westminster and back to Vancouver 5 times in one day I made the decision – to buy my new home!
I have never been that nervous, excited, fearful, melancholic and happy at the same time in my life.
Crossing fingers right before buying my new RV!!
