" If you are not content with what you have, you would not be satisfied if it were doubled.” ~ Charles Spurgeon
I bought a motorhome a few months back. My wife and I will be travelling the nation with my sister's family. Our goal is to live and work out west in and near various National Parks during the summer months and be closer to family during the winter. Life is short - I want to have my cake and eat it too.
In support of our simple lifestyle and desire to stay out of debt, we didn't want a payment on our motorhome so we bought the nicest 10 year old motorhome that we could afford with our savings. I was pleased with our choice and thought it was very nice when I purchased it.
A nice new deluxe motorhome is parked next door. It is beautiful with all of the bells and whistles. Suddenly my motorhome seems to have a lot more problems and doesn't seem as adequate as before.
On the other side of me is a small 18 ft camper trailer. It's maybe 20 years old and a very plain and simple model. I saw the older gentleman looking at my motor home. I bet he was thinking that maybe his old trailer wasn't as nice as it seemed when he bought it.
On the north side of the next island is a woman living out of her car. She's often hassled and chased from one parking lot to the next by law enforcement. I bet she wishes she had the 18 ft. camper trailer and the money to pay for a camping spot.
