If it were me, I would go out and hitch that Airstream up, get the kids, get the food and go to the lake. Maybe if you left him home to think about it often enough, he'd get the message that you all want to have fun and he can stay home and feel sorry or blame you or blame the trailer BY HIMSELF! Enough is enough. No victims here on the forum. Don't let some theives make victims of you and your family. Go on out and have some fun.

Well, I look at it this way. If I bought a new unit, I would have huge monthly payments. With my "paid for" 34 year old unit, I have low monthly payments. A power converter this month, a battery next month. Maybe a new furnace in the next year or so, new tires (again!) the year after that. I know I will need a new A/C unit in less than 5 years, who knows? RV's need constant maintenance, there's no escaping it. Think of the poor folks that have the monthly payment AND a major repair to deal with. You've got it made Angel!

Keep going

Angel we have a 75 sov. 31 ft. We bought last November. After the first 2 weeks I was just like you (flustered) We had to replace the whole front floor under the gaucho after my darling hubby fell through it from floor rot. It took us 2 weeks to find where the leak was that caused the floor rot. So we got all that fixed. I have learned alot but we also wanted to camp. So a few weeks ago we headed out I use the grill at the campsite because we still have not had all the gas lines checked out, and I still use the restrooms there because we have water leaks from broken lines. What we have decided is fix as we go. We are saving for the trailer to be pro. re plumbed we are not plumbers. We were lucky that the a/c still works as does the fridge so until they go out we use them. When they decide to die then we will replace. You don't have to do everything at once I learned that months ago. Get your running gear all checked out and get out there. As my husband always states camping is an adventure (enjoy)

Sorry I missed you!

Anyway, I saw your unit sitting back off the highway between the Presbyterian and Baptist churches. My cousin said that it indeed was him taht stopped the other day. Gosh, I sure am sorry I missed you and 'hubby'. I, along with each of the other posters have had my ups and downsand it would have been good just to sit and reminesce with you. Maybe I will get to one of these days, Dianne and I go back down home pretty often.
Don't get down, just keep up your exuberent attitude.

No Angel, I haven't been there in years. Tommy and his family go down there and to Paris Landing sometimes. We have been traveling far and wide for the last couple of years, doing the caravan thing plus going to the hurricane areas a couple of times. If only I had 9 days in my week....................

Yeah,tell me about it...I never been camping at paris,been down there but not really big on staying with 1000's of people.Our normal camp site is Redd Hollow,but since she got broke into we don't want to put her back there.So we're going to try a place called Rushing Creek...You should think about trying it out price's aren't to bad anywheres from 8.00 to 25.00 a night.Or back country permitt or 20 or 25.00 a year per adult kids stay free.A couple of years ago the start seasonal sites depend on where you want to stay for a six month time starting at 270.00 to 2,600.can stay up to six months at a time on one site..Alot to see and they always have something going on there for all ages for the most part.You'll should atleast try it once...

My kids are my life.No matter what they come first.Husband can be replaced they can't.Thats one of the main reason i bought the camper.To get them out of the house....Due to there health problem they cant get out like other children do and play.....Either there getting picked on because there sick or there allergy to the world wont let them.The camper was to be a safe place for them to get away in.
This was to be a project for my father and i.But he passed away before we could start on it.So between my kids happiness and may father wish for my kids to a some what of a normal summers.This makes me pretty motivated at times to get this completed.I just get get burned out sometimes.Ive been working on this camper since march and i was alittle burned out is all....And i was just need someone to tell me to keep going.......I hope this answer your question.
