Those of you that have been with me for awhile, or have read back into my earliest posts, know that we started our retirement life in June of 2006 by selling our home and moving into a 35 foot 5th wheel trailer with three slides outs. We were going to live in the trailer and travel the world.........well, our country anyhow, for several years. Then in January of last year, 2008, we moved back home, into a rented apartment, to help care for my mom. At that time we sold our big trailer and bought a teeny tiny trailer, just for weekend getaways around home here in Minnesota. As you all know, my dear mom is now living with Jesus in Heaven. We now can travel a bit more if we want to, and as we just found out on our trip to Florida, our teeny tiny trailer is just too teeny tiny to spend more than a week in. I think I've recently mentioned, probably more than once, that we were looking for a larger trailer. We want nothing as huge and as elaborate as our original fifth wheel trailer, but we need a little more room than the teeny tiny trailer gives us.
Guess what? We've found it! On Craigslist!
Yesterday afternoon we went to look at a trailer in a town about 40 miles from here. It is almost exactly what we had in mind. Bigger, one slideout, and even space to turn around! It's five/six years old, but not used much at all. It is in good shape, relatively clean, lite weight, and it is calling our names! It has a bed, sofa, and dinette that can sleep people, and it has two bunks in the back end by the bathroom! However, there is not much storage or cupboard space, so we would use the bunks to store the extra food, clothes, and stuff (fabrics, threads, patterns, sewing machine) that a person would need on an extended trip, like to Alaska in July. We are excited! We took last night to think it over, and this morning we both decided that this is the one.
AND!!!! It is priced almost the same as we could sell our teeny tiny trailer for! So hubby is off to town to make the arrangements. Now I have to get out there and sweep the sand out of the teeny tiny trailer so we can put it on Craigslist! If this all goes through as we think it will, I will be posting pictures of the bigger roomier trailer soon!
