I put down the holding payment on that 2005 Patriot this morning! Now, I just need to return with the cash and I'm ready to do battle with the NJ and CT DMV. I'll do that wednesday. I test drove a jeep cherokee today and if the mechanic says it's OK, I'll have my tow vehicle and there's a garage just down the street that specializes in next-day hitches.
Today was my first time inside the patriot, and It's so cozy! I can't wait to get it home and really clean it out and figure out how I'll use the little storage bins. I'm thinking about plastic bins that lift right out, so I'll have to do some measuring and shopping.
The water/water heater/ and plumbing will be all new to me, so, I'll be back here with some really dumb questions.
I have a queen bed topper so I'll do what some on here have suggested and put the cushions on top of it to cut it to size, and make a cover and hope I can get it in there!
But it's such a great feeling that I can go no matter what the weather is, and not have that 3 hour campsite setup. I also like the feeling that I can lock the door and get a great night's sleep. It will also be nice to vacate a site easily by 11 am and then keep it in the parkinglot and extend my day, without being totally wiped out and sweating.
Picking it up wednesday! Can't wait!!!!
