Possible RVs: Part 2

This past weekend, I had the wonderful experience of going with some friends to a lakehouse. My old roommate’s family owns one, and her grandparents have the fortune of living right next door. Her grandmother was kind enough to take me on a tour of the lake, so I could see all of the lovely little cottages and houses for sale with lake frontage. Aside from wondering if I shouldn’t change my plan, get a boat, and live there instead, I got to drive past a great number of RVs in people’s yards.

I started with my heart set on a Scamp because I wouldn’t have to upgrade my tow vehicle, but after seeing some of the other compact trailers out there, I might look seriously into some others as well.

I made myself a list of the brands I was seeing:

  • Jayco
  • Nomad
  • Puma
  • Cirrus
  • Silverback
  • Dutchman
  • GulfStream
  • Coachman

I almost liked it better when I thought I knew what I wanted, because now that I’m looking at other options, I’m getting a bit overwhelmed. However, it did open my eyes to the idea of a Hybrid trailer, like the Starcraft AR-ONE Hybrid Travel Trailer. I found a used 2012 model with a bathtub(!) for around $12k. That’s not at all unreasonable. The only caveat would be that I could not stay anywhere cold, not with a pop-out bed like it has.

Looking at the available options makes it a little more difficult to choose an RV, but I need to remember how focused I’ve been on this, and remind myself that I have to be smart about what I’m doing.

  2. I was in B&Q a DIY warehouse and they had a big display on RV cushions, pictures, wallpaper etc and it made me wonder how you’re getting on?
    Best wishes

    • I’m flattered you would think of me! I’m just getting back to the blog, because the last few months have been super hectic. I’ll post about it soon enough, but in the meantime let’s just say that dreams are hard things to have ๐Ÿ™‚
