Everything seems to be coming along now. We’ve listed the old RV on craigslist, we’ve ordered the new RV, we’ve finished the consignment sale, we’ve made it thru the first garage sale, and we are past the initial stage of our kids getting angry and/or sad that we are really going to do this (and that’s a whole other blog post in itself). There’s not much left to do at this point.
We’ve been given a date of October 16th for the walk thru and delivery of our new home. Brent and I will drive up to Michigan to get it, and we’ll stay overnight a few nights at the dealership to make sure that there are no issues that need to be taken care of prior to driving it all the way back to Texas. Then we’ll stay at a nearby campground for a few nights for more of the break-in period.
Brent also snagged an appointment at a MORryde dealership in Indiana the following week to fix up our home with some snazzy equipment (that I don’t have a clue about) that will help make it ride smoother down the highway. For those of you that live in North Texas, can you imagine driving your home down the highways around here every week or two? Think it would stay in one piece for long? Well, we’ll be doing that…all over the country. So, yeah, anything to make that ride a little smoother and to help with the longevity of our new home is a definite priority.
I’ll be flying back to Texas after the first week in Michigan while Brent continues the break-in period alone and gets our home all fixed up. I feel good knowing that he’ll be close to the dealership should any issues arise. I’ve heard horror stories of things that can go wrong in brand new RVs, so I’m praying that God has placed the absolute best workers on the factory line while building our home.
Can’t wait to see it when it drives into Texas for the first time. We’ll have to do a video walk-thru when we pick it up so you guys can see it too. Let us know if there’s anything specific you want to see!
