SoCS 8-13-22 She’s Home!

We brought the RV home today for the next week and boy, it seems pretty economical so far.

The return trip took my husband only an hour, with Chris as his co-pilot and me following in the car, but he said the gas gauge barely moved! That’s better than I was figuring. Anyway, I’m so happy to have her home so we can see how our stuff will fit.

We brought the girls (our Shorkies) aboard and let them sniff around and pose for a short video. (Whiskey anyway)

No video but there’s Dave, Chris, and Miss Brandy

I have to say, my guys sure know how to handle big rigs! David backed it in the long driveway no problem! I was worried about it dragging as the back end hit the end of the driveway, but nope.

The diesel pusher on the freight liner chassis made for a very smooth drive on the freeway, and helps with the fuel economy and power.

The decor is nice, but my head is already thinking about changing things to make it our own, but all that can be done in the future. I can’t wait to show David some of the cool storage tips and such that I’ve been learning on the RV blogs. 😁 He says you can’t hang things on the walls? Why, yes you can! No drilling necessary!

For now, we’ll just enjoy getting to know it a little bit, showing it off to family and friends (just a tiny bit proud) and packing in whatever we can do without at home, so we know what we have left to sell or store. We visited (before we went to Melissa) the Benbrook storage facility and also went to test drive a Jeep. It’s been a productive day!

On top of that, we had two more showings and got positive feedback on the last one, but still no offers yet. Still, the wheels are in motion now, and I’m so grateful for everything so far!

    • Yes, thanks to God! 🙏 Now to get the house sold…hey, maybe if they have a showing at our house today we can just duck in the Rv lol. It takes a long time to cool til Dave gets new batteries and does a better leveling job. But we will figure it out!

  1. I am so happy for you, Kim. It must be a thrill to see it in your driveway. I’m sure you will make it your own before too long, even if it’s just a few homey touches. I’m glad the dogs aren’t afraid of it. Looks like your plans are going to work well.

    • Thank you, Dan. Trying to take it ne day at a time, and realizing how expensive all the components are makes one take a step back and consider waiting a bit to earn a bit more so we don’t go broke! However, there are are coupons, discounts, and work camping to consider as well. But at least I’m facing reality and not walking around with my head in the clouds, lol!
