Wife is going to kill me

well i must have the addiction - i purchased a 1968 26' overlander international 3 weeks ago and today purchased a 1977 31' sovereign side bath/rear bed model.

wife has no idea - if you hear screaming tonight you'll know where its coming from.

i plan to remodel both as they are now gutted with new floors. i started the overlander 2 weeks ago and having a blast.

i'm sure i'll have lots of questions. sovereign will be delivered dec 6th weather permitting.

Are you saying she doesn't know about either one of them, or just the last purchase? Glad I'm not in your shoes. Santa better be extra nice to her this year. If you know what I mean.

I kept it a secret until I was going to get it-
Then I asked her if she was going with me to Little Rock to get the Airstream...

It's always easier to get forgiveness later than permission before. Well done.

As a wife, I would totally approve! Just saying...
Would she believe that they are her Christmas presents?

you people are funny! yes the boss knows about the 68 26' overlander but nothing about the 31 sovereign - i must love confrontation - i'll have a honey-do list longer than the new trailer!

as i've noticed over the years the longer trailers are not as desirable and lots on the market - this one has a few dents but with floors done, no leaks and the aluminum wheels, new tires, great condition awnings i felt i couldn't go wrong.

my plan is to turn it into a mobile practice/recording studio - with the proper equiptment and using electronic drums, a full band can play with absolutely no amplification and totally quiet - everyone is plugged into a headphone amp with each musician having seperate eq/mixing and the unit also records on a flash card with studio quality sound..

Amen to that!
I used to beg for years and repeatedly get told, "No!"
I just decided one day I'm gonna do what I want, when I want, and how I want to do it!
