We got a trailer!

Once again serendipity has struck the Sinnett household and we find ourselves the proud owners of a 2010 R-Vision Trail Cruiser 23QBC travel trailer that's only been used 4 (yes 4) times!.

We've been toying with the idea of getting a travel trailer for a few years.  Deborah had one in the past and enjoyed it.  We've gone to a couple of RV shows over the last couple of years and I've been watching Craigslist.  Nothing serious and nothing that jumped off the page at us.  Until a few weeks ago, that is.

Deborah's been walking in the mornings with her long-time friend Danita for the last few months.  In the course of their walks Danita mentioned that she had a travel trailer that she needed to sell.  Next thing I knew we were taking a look at it to see if the floor plan was something we like.  It was.

Front walk-around queen bed . . .

Unlike with the boat, I went to the bank the first time she asked.  Same expectation that they'd say no.  Same result, that they didn't.  And it does look good in our driveway

The battery was toast so I got a pair of 6v golf cart batteries.  When I went to install the new battery box I got a surprise - it didn't fit!  Some creative carpentry and I've got a platform that should do the job.

Most of the systems check out fine but I've got a bit of work to do on the fridge.  It works fine on electricity but didn't want to fire consistently on gas.  Probably a spider in the burner.  I'd be working on it this weekend if it wasn't for Snowmageddon II (see tomorrow's post).
