Yep, we did it. We purchased our ‘rig.’ A 2020 Keystone Impact 359, 5th wheel, toy hauler. Say that five times fast! Here is the kicker; we still haven’t seen it in real life. There is no need to go to an RV dealer’s lot to purchase an RV these days if they are honest (do your homework!). You already know what you want anyway. There is now no-haggle pricing (yes I still haggled a bit, anyway) no discovering a new layout (we’ve walked through them all, this was our homework!) no new paint job unless specified that it has one. There is just not a lot of mystery!
You should go to many RV shows. You should visit many dealers, private sellers, and every seller on the web through RV Trader and RVT.com. This is a journey, not a destination. Well, it’s kind of a destination because you end up with an RV or you may not… may not would be bad at this point. YouTube videos and RV blogs are to be followed and watched with vigor (like the rabid dogs we are). You are consistently hungry for knowledge, and you must gain it before taking on this life-altering decision to full-time RV. We did it all!
So without further ado, here is our brand new home!
Isn’t she a beauty! What to name her? I just don’t know yet. All I know is that this is my ticket to living the fullest life I possibly can! No longer will I be homebound, teetering on visiting the ‘shut-in’ status. No more winters of being too afraid to venture outside in case I fall on the ice, then freeze to death. I am so happy to be looking at a mobile life chasing the sun. I know my symptoms are increasing. Some of my conditions are getting worse… so I will travel now before that option is taken from me. I feel very blessed to have reached this destination. I am so lucky to be able to try to live this lifestyle. I want to take you all with me! Believe me, I will try.
This Fibro Warrior is finding freedom as a rolling stone!
