My 1985 Toyota Dolphin that is…
Don’t get me wrong – I love my little Toyhome. However, I’m not as “spry” as I once was and climbing into bed at night is something I don’t like. It’s especially difficult when I have to lift Cali to sleep at the foot of the bed every night!
I’ve been looking at Born Free’s, and the plus is that I could tow my 2002 Honda CR-V easily. There was one for sale in Las Cruces, but I felt it was overpriced and was concerned about the owner’s lackadaisical attitude about the service records. So, I let it go.
Now I’m looking at another rig in my hometown, but for some strange reason the owner and I haven’t been able to connect with the owner by phone. He only has communicated by e-mail, and first had the flu and then went on Spring Break. He got back April 8th, but no phone call.
When I was in Tucson, someone walked up to me and offered to buy it for $3,500.00. I almost laughed at him. Uh, the engine has been rebuilt, new tires, and the inside completely renovated with even a new sub-floor. It has custom blinds, a kayak rack on top, a 130 watt Kyocera solar panel, and a GoPower pure sine wave 400 watt inverter. I’ve also replaced all the lights inside with led bulbs.
My only concern is that it’s rather “weighty” in the rear, and my tires wore prematurely at 30,000 miles. Other than that, I love my sweet girl. I’m rather “antsy” to get out on the road again and don’t want to sit around and wait for a different RV to come to me.
So, gentle readers – what do YOU think? Should I keep her?
