|We got it last month February, 2016|
After we drove to Yuma in December and I hit a post with the trailer I never wanted to tow again. I kept telling myself to just stay put, months at a time, and wait until the travel trailer was paid off before buying a new rig.
I mentioned before how I was stressing over the thought of a huge RV payment for the next 20 years. I thought I could resist the lure of an $80,000 new motor home.
But I couldn't. I never want to tow again. NEVER! I hate towing! I HATE IT! I hate trying to get gas at these gas stations meant for tiny cars. I hated hitching up. I hated not being able to boondock for extended periods because hooking and unhooking the trailer was such a pain in the ass. I hated not being able to back into RV spaces and having to beg or bribe men to back in for me EVERY SINGLE TIME.
I don't hate living in the old RV, when we were parked, unhitched, and new we were staying put for a while. The problem was that it was tough to write with all the distractions. I needed more privacy and a better place to work besides a dinette where I was facing my mother. Mostly though...I needed something that wasn't Hell to transport.
With this motor home and its generator we are going to be able to boondock on BLM land the way I'd always intended. In fact, that's what we're doing right now. We got out of Yuma to BLM in California and plan to stay here the month. It's the LTVA near Senator's Wash. If I have the energy (I've been lacking that lately) I will take pictures of our beautiful temporary home.
The new RV is awesome. We already had a long trip in it when I went back to Nevada to register it. I love driving this thing. It handles like a dream. I'm not stressing at the prospect of moving it here or there. Getting gas is easy. If I get in a corner it's easy to back up and turn around.
It can incognito boondock in a parking lot too! It only takes two spots. The coach is fully accessible with the slides in!
I have an office now. Sadly the fricking table ripped off the wall, but I've put a new table in place.

|I had to do a ghetto fix. Yeah. Making the $80k RV look dumpy already.|
I also love my loft. The cab over bunk is huge and I can sit up in there. It's another place where I can use the computer.

|Here it is now. My mom didn't want to be in the picture.|
