Well as crazy as it may seem to a lot of our friends we now own a motorhome and will be living in very, very soon. Upon making the deal with the previous owner a couple of weekends ago we started to get our minds into this whole “we are going to buy a HUGE motorhome” thing… My deal with the seller was that we would meet at a bank on the southeast side of Austin, TX. My reason to meet here was to shorten my drive by about 80 miles each way and so I wouldn’t have to drive the motorhome through the Friday afternoon Austin traffic, which can be brutal in a car!!!
So as all plans go this one too went awry… the owner called and said he had to get some minor surgery the day before we were to meet and the doctor advised him not to drive the motorhome. YIKES! Now I have to drive it the full 180 miles through Austin. YIKES!
So a buddy of mine and I drove over to Austin where we met with the owner and concluded the banking transaction. He gave me a bill of sale and the bank gave me receipts from the transaction. We followed the owner into the Texas hill country between Johnson City and Fredricksburg where our future home was sitting.
The owner gave us the run through of the controls one more time and then it was all mine to drive. I must mention here I never – EVER – drove a motorhome before (my advice to you would be to do so). So I crank the engine and off I went. We were only going to go about a mile to a restaurant we saw on the way in so my partner could tell me how I was doing and we could grab a bite and give me time to absorb all that was taking place.
