Sad Day

Well its a sad day, we sold our 1990 Hawkins MH due to my health reasons and are now just waiting for the new owner to complete the transaction. I know this will not be our last MH but until I can recover from this next surgery there is no point in letting her sit in the AZ sun and go un-used. We will be back, I just have to recover first, I hope this is my last surgery so that I can live semi-pain free and stop my legs from going numb.

Probably did the right thing, leaving it and not using it.....wish you all the best with the surgery. Hopefully it gives you some pain free living.

Sincere wishes for a successful surgery and that you can get another rig soon. I've never seen a Hawkins RV so I will have to research this one.

I found a YouTube video about a 1990 Aerosport. Nice looking RV. Was yours like this one...

So sorry to hear this.

But just curious, if you think you will be back motorhoming in a year to 18 months, why sell? It must be completely paid for (no payments)....you probably only got a fraction of what you really had invested. The only reason that makes sense is you didn't like it all that much anyway, and were already thinking about trading. Is that the reason? I only want to know because if I find myself in a similar situation, it would help with my thinking process to know why the decision was made. If I loved the MH I would keep it if I thought I was going to use it again.

I will probably be out of motor homing for the next year due to recovery time, and the camping season. My motorhome was paid for and I did get less than I had into it but not much and the money I did not get back was worth the memories with the family. The next motorhome will be bigger and a have a slide. Beside if I would have kept the motorhome I would have to maintain insurance, registration, and emissions on it so that adds cost for something not being used.


To mikebreeze,

Mine was not an areosport but similar with upgraded appliances and brown in color. The Hawkins are very nice and I would not hesitate to buy another i the future if the price was right.

Thanks to all, this is one of the nicest forums out there..

Sorry to hear of your condition but hope your recovery will be less than a year. Too bad you feel you must get rid of your HMC as they were one great quality coach in it's day.

Wishing you a successful surgery and a rapid recovery...

Good luck with your surgery and I wish you a speedy recovery. I am alive because of the amazing things surgeons can do. Whipple Operation for Pancreatic cancer 4.5yrs ago and still going strong.

Thanks for the well wishes, the new owner picked it up today, it was sad to see it go but has a good home. I hope to be up and moving in a few months, off the walker and hopefully no more cane. Time will tell, thanks again to all who have sent their wishes!
