A funny thing happened on the way to the tire shop, my wife and I saw a sign for an RV sale. We decided to stop by after having the Escape's tires rotated. Long story short, we arrived at the dealer at 4:30 and left at 8:00pm with a new toy hauler. My F 350 was up to the job, but didn't have the hitch, we ordered one and had the fiver delivered to our home.

The fun didn't stop there, that Friday the local Ford dealer called and asked if we wanted to trade in my wife's Escape, I said we had two vehicles to trade in for a new Super Duty, they said come on down. We went down on Monday at noon and 8:00pm we drove off the lot with a 2012 F250 Super Duty with air shocks to be installed at a later date.

Teri and I had discussed becoming full timers, now it looks like we can't procrastinate any longer.

Sarah, I haven't quite figured out how to add photos yet, will try again later.

Arch, We lived in a fiver for about five years on our property but never went anywhere with it. This is the first time we will be traveling in an RV and we are really looking forward to getting on the road.

Congratulations and have fun!
My website describes the conversion of my Dodge B-250 van into a small RV. I deal with a lot of woodworking, but hope to be quite specific on solar as well.
