RT and I are discussing selling his house, buying an RV, trailer or motor home to put on the land to live in while we build the house.  Hmmmmm.  It’ll be spring before the new house is built.  As I write this, there is a crew over there digging the 4-foot deep trenches for the water and electricity lines.

If we follow that plan, we’d put most of our stuff in yet another storage unit (that would make THREE full storage units of our stuff), take just what we need to get us until spring, and then put the motor home/RV/trailer on the land and live there while the house is being built.  That would free up the money to pay for the house rather than having to take out a loan.  And the building site is a long way off the road – at the end of a 1/3 mile winding driveway that RT built.  So there wouldn’t be any danger of neighbors complaining – because no one could see it unless they drove to the end of the driveway.

I think it could be considered an adventure since there would be definite parameters of time.  i.e. You can handle most anything as long as you know there will be an end to it.  It would be nice to be over there because it is such a beautiful place.

So today I’m looking online at campers and RVs and motor homes and trailers – and thinking about being real-life trailer trash!  Yea!

    I like your sense of humor! But you may not qualify since “Trailer trash ” is synonymous with “poor white trash” in many minds.
    Actually selling an d buying a trailer may be a great idea.

    You aren’t adventurous, you’re a lover of pain! Living in a trailer or camper for more than a month would qualify you for an insanity defense should you decide to end his miserable life!

    starkravinred, you are probably right. We are just THINKING about it at the moment. RT is afraid that the housing market is going to take a dive, and if we wait till next spring to sell his house, he won’t get as much for it. I don’t know. There are pros and cons no matter what we decide. We just have to decide which are most important to us.

    Personally, I think that sounds cozy and romantic!! Your addage that you can stand anything if you know it will end soon is SO true.
    Warren has been talking about getting an RV when he retires and traveling around. They are SO comfortable now, I think you may actually like it.
