Well, the RV Show is in town and it was first on my list of things to do today. I have ben attending the RV Show here in Spokane for the past ten years. The last couple of years it seemed to decline some and not very many RV's were sold.
This year, however, is a different story. I got there at 10AM when it opened and the line was at least a block long already. I think everyone had the same idea to go early. There were lots and lots of RV's and vendors and RV's were selling like hotcakes. Doesn't seem to be a recession here. It was a lot better laid out this year than in others. I did not buy a new one but I did get a few ideas about remodeling the one I have and I came away with a sack of free goodies.
Now I am not one to keep up with The Joneses, nor do I have to have the biggest or best. I don't want a particular brand just because someone else has one or the world is coming to an end because I don't have what they have. I also don't like to follow what everyone else is doing. Just Because they need two vehicles doesn't mean I want two. I couldn't drive two vehicles at the same time anyway.
I am happy with what I have. I am confident my "Out House" will serve me just fine. The mechanical part is fine and with a few upgrades to the interior to make it more homey I will have a lot less invested and I will have more fun.
When you buy new the minute you drive it off the showroom floor it will begin to depreciate. Myself, I would rather let someone else do that and buy something used and in good shape. Mine may not be as good looking as yours or have all the bells and whistles but it will have all the bells and whistles I need and if you want to refer to my RV as "a piece of JUNK" then do it to my face and not my back.
And now with my hammer and saw in hand...maybe I will go add a slide----or two---with a slide maybe my RV "won't look so tacky" (quote).
That's it For Today.
