We seem to totally function on dumb luck. Daughter found a vintage teardrop on craigslist that needed restoration. Day after looking and rejecting it wife decided she wanted it, so offered $500 and we owned it. Restored it and use it. Then a couple years later on a trip to pick blueberries wife spots a Uhaul
camper in a little RV lot. It was there being sold on consignment. Couple days later and $2000 we own it. Then a couple years later as we're looking at a Casita
17 that friends bought, wife says "let me know if you ever decide to sell this". Five months later we own it too, but nothing to pull it with and only a month before heading south for the winter. After frustrating search for a pickup I say "I give up, we're out of time, we'll have to take the Uhaul
south again" and wife says what about this Dodge dealer we are driving by. So I pull in there and end up with a 2012 Ram that has only 17,000 miles on it. So now we have 4 campers, including the '73 Starcraft pop-up that wifes father found for us at a great price in 1977.
