I happened to find my trailer when "the universe was in alignment" and my situation worked for me. Is it perfect? I must confess, no, not really. Is it perfect for me in this time and place? Yeah, sort of. That's enough.
Say, sir, that's what happened to me.
I had never once expressed an interest in trailer-camping (we had only tented or day-trip-canoed previously, and not that often) then suddenly I wanted an RV.
I toured a sweet used stick-bulit that was at least 22 feet long and full of 70s retro furnishings, and got our clever mechanic friend to have a look-see. Five grand.
He said, "That trailer is fine for five thousand, if you really want all that space. Here is the local Buy-and-Sell. Here is a '77 17' foot Boler
advertised today for five thousand. It will not rust or leak. If you want it, you should call him now."
I said, "Yeah, okay, I'll call him tomorrow." he said, "It will be gone by tomorrow. If you want it, drive there now with a certified cheque."
The seller already had two offers, but I had a certified cheque, and we signed the papers on the spot and dragged it home the next morning.
It just so happened I had recently lost a job under highly unusual circumstances, but had negotiated a severance package for five grand.
It is my Severance Boler
, and no, it is not perfect. Is it right for me and my family in this time and place? Yeah. That's enough.
Less work, more camping.
