When we first decided to take this expedition, I jumped at the chance to go RV hunting. I searched CraigsList twice a day from San Diego to Fresno for over two months looking for a fairly-clean, mechanically-sound, used RV. Then I spent several weeks driving a few old, smelly clunkers (the online photos were often as current as Match.com profile pics). When I finally found what I thought to be “the one”, a series of unreturned phone calls and delays and other “interested parties” worked to keep us apart but, eventually, patience and persistence prevailed and we are now the proud owners of a 24-foot 1999 Ford Jamboree!
Our new highway vessel has a few grandma-ish elements that, cute as they are, we have elected to update – so take one last look at the denim, moose and pine trees. She’ll be back soon after a mild makeover. And with a new name – any suggestions?
