So we have decided to get a new camper, [I never should have told Dillon he could get a dirt car if we got a new camper] and now he expects to get a dirt car. But that’s a story for another day! I had the Heartland Oakmont picked out for a just in case kinda thing. A girl can dream, right? Together we found the Heartland Sundance and, we all like a little better! But this story is about my poor little feelers.
I’ve gotten almost everything packed and moved into the storage truck. Everything inside is so bare; the walls, cabinets, and closets. As I look around I have come to the conclusion, it doesn’t even look like our camper anymore. I can see our memories; all the water fights over the tiny shower stall, cooking/burning everything in our tiny crap stove, cramming food every week into our tiny fridge, meals, and homework at our tiny kitchen table, and all the times’ everyone crammed onto our big bed for a movie.
I’m really going to miss this place. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m totally excited to be getting a new camper that fits us better. I just feel like we have lived our whole lives in this camper although it’s only been four years. We have definitely embraced the traveling lifestyle and made this camper our home. As I’m typing my eyes are watering and I’ve almost decided to back out of getting a new camper….. OK, so I’m not even close to backing out of getting a new camper, but it sounded good!
Camper living is not easy and it is not for everyone, but we’re glad to be out here together as a family and seeing new places.
It was a tough choice! New camper and the payment that goes with it or our old/needs work camper and no payment! In the end, we decided we have enough projects going and it was just time to get a new one. I think it was just the fact that he wanted a race car.
I’m really looking forward into making our new camper look and feel like home!
P.S. These pictures are from right before we took it to trade it in. All traces of our decorating and taste is gone. That is not our bedspread! YUCK!!
