One phone call from the RV dealership and the best laid plans of mice and men were shattered. It was our plan to swap out our old trailer and have the new trailer delivered in May of 2016. The day before we completed the paperwork for the purchase of the trailer, our salesman called and told us that he did not know what he was thinking when he agreed to swap out the trailers in May. He said that the dealership would own our old trailer the next day and that they wanted it now, not in the Spring when it would be a model year older. We saw his point. Because we still wanted the new trailer at the agreed-upon price, we had the trailer delivered on October 2nd.
It sure is a beauty. Over the summer, we will be planning on where to go first, or at least a general direction. I am leaning toward New York and the Finger Lakes so that we can stock up on wines before we turn South for the winter. I think Kay still does not believe I am retiring since, for the last six years, I have been saying that I would retire in two years! Kay is waiting until the date gets closer to believe it is really happening.
I was also planning to wait until Spring to buy our new truck, but we started looking at the end of October and began to be lured into the 2015 year-end pricing. We got a great deal on a GMC 2500HD Sierra Denali with a crew cab. This way we have two vehicles and Kay is not trapped in our winter rental while I am at work. When we get ready to hit the road, we will pass along the Chevy to Bryan, Kay's son.
I am spending any free time reading and joining RV blogs. I am really interested in boon-docking and tips and tricks others have learned along the way. Next, I need to decide what RV clubs to join and then start planning our route.
