After last week’s busyness, Tom and Nicolas were ready for a few days off, and both of the boys have semester exams going on this week and next.
We had thought we might take a drive to Quartzite for the giant RV gathering one day this week, but we’re having trouble getting motivated to drive 120 miles each way for an RV flea market.
So, I think we’ll skip Quartzite, and maybe take a drive to Mesa and Apache Junction on Saturday instead.
We’ll probably look at some RVs. We’ve been toying with the idea of replacing the toyhauler with a motorhome next year after Nicolas isn’t travelling with us anymore. Originally we thought we’d keep this RV until Bryce left for college too, but Tom thinks the X-Aire will bring a higher price now than it will 2 years from now.
But . . . what kind of motorhome to get? Diesel pushers are really nice but, as we know from all of our previous research, they are set up for 2 people. The few that have bunks are OK for little kids . . . but not the giant that Bryce is turning into. I do not want him sleeping on a couch every night for 2 years!
Bryce says he’d like a class C again, with the bunk over the cab. Unfortunately, there are not a lot of fulltime-capable class Cs out there. The super Cs are nice, and we REALLY liked the Haulmark toter-home we saw at Barrett-Jackson last week.
It even had my ideal kitchen!
I am so tired of my gas stove, and I would love to have an electric cooktop . . . not that I don’t like cooking on the gas stove, but it is virtually impossible to keep clean!
The thing is, these toter-homes are really heavy duty (meant to be towing enclosed trailers with race cars in them) – more heavy duty than we need – and they have a heavy duty price, too!
So, we’ll visit some RV dealers, and we’ll do our research, and maybe we’ll eventually buy something new (or somewhat new) . . . no telling how long it will take. That’s what really irritates the RV salesmen . . . they all think you are going to buy something TODAY. Well, they don’t know Tom G . . . he does not make spontaneous decisions!
So, that’s what we’re up to this week . . . oh, and enjoying the beautiful above average temperatures here in Phoenix!
