Our Travel Trailer Wish List

So, we’re not-so-patiently waiting for the arrival of our first travel trailer! We’ve ordered the one we want through a local dealership, and now we’re just waiting on it to come in. (Is it here yet? Is it here yet? Is it here YET?!).

We’ve been given an estimate of January 2017 for our travel trailer to arrive. I fully expect us to be waiting at the dealership with balloons and a cake to help make it feel more welcome when it gets to us!

In the meantime, Gib and I are making wish lists galore of things we want to have in our travel trailer. Obviously, there’s a LOT we need to get, and we’re already plunking down a chunk of change just investing in the trailer alone.

Camper shopping time

It’s a beautiful fall Saturday here in S.C. – a perfect day to go camper shopping! We spoke to a few sales associates at two different RV stores in the area, and narrowed down some options we might like to consider.

Talk about overwhelming! First of all, when we first walked in to the first place, we were completely bowled over by the range of RVs and campers on the lot. From your $500,000 tour busses to the most basic of pop-ups, it was all there.

Not going to lie. We took a few minutes to walk onto one of the mac daddy tour busses and look around. I could definitely get used to that kind of style. A girl can dream, right?

But alas, we needed something a little less, ah, pricey/big/rockstar for our crew.
