Overhead camper

Well, it is ours now! The previous post has photos of the overhead camper we now own. - It was pretty good deal, asking $1000, paid $600, and the PO was the one who went down in price! We didn't even have to talk him down.

I sold a walnut diningroom set last week for $580, and that pretty much covered the price of the camper.

The dining set was probably worth a few hundred more than i got for it, but it was big and bulky, without much storage in the buffet.

I expect the memories and adventures with this camper will be far greater than the ones a table brings.

However, now that I think about it, many family meals were enjoyed around that table! Christmases, Thanksgivings, Birthdays....From the time I was a kid when my Mother owned the set. It was given to me when we bought our first house, we got married, our kids were born and raised with it. Their first meals, and first Birthdays, Christmases...OKOK, maybe that table had its own memories! In fact, I may now have some regrets!!! But, time for new memories!

Goodbye walnut dining set: Hello camper.

Tired of looking...ugh

You was supposed to be fun! I didnt think we were asking for too much. I really thought it would be a lot easier. We have been looking for over a year now, with no luck. Missed out on a couple of good deals, by hesitating. Thought we learned from those experiences....but I guess not. We are about to embark upon an adventure in camping....without sleeping quarters! YIKES! August is only 1 month away! We need to get something before the first weekend in August! We don't even own a tent anymore. I supopose we could borrow one.

Well we have decided that we might pick up an overhead camper....nothing special....because we have discovered that the older ones go pretty cheap!

This is the one we like at the moment. asking $1000 - pretty nice if you ask me! I was very pleasantly suprised!

We have a 3/4 ton, so it can handle a good size one. The good thing about having one, is in a couple of years when we do find our nice little vintage trailer, we can keep the camper for the boys when they go on fishing trips.

We are going to look at one tomorrow for only $500 - so we will see!
