If you were to buy a house and renovate it then sell it you wouldn't say, "just give me $75,000 instead of $252,000... I did all the work myself" Would you? If that same house burnt the ground you wouldn't tell your insurance company, "hey I only have $75,000 for the purchase price and $25,000 in materials so just give me $100,000." The same is true of your trailer. Say it got wrecked. "Oh, JQ Insurance, I only have $8,500 in it" No, you would want the full amount you feel it worth.
I couldn't agree more!
Those two years working on our trailer were weekends we could have been on the road to somewhere...(but it was worth it. Now our trailer feels like part of the family.)
I could never talk about the cost
of our trailer without talking about the time
it has taken. We have WAY more time in our trailer than money.
