Anybody want to buy a very nice motorhome? We thought we had two good prospects on our Winnebago and both of them stood us up this weekend. It was kind of like my dating life back in high school.
The first couple actually came by last Sunday, and after spending a lot of time asking questions and checking it out the said they would get back to us within the week. Then on Friday I exchanged emails with the husband, who said he would be in contact over the weekend. Not a word, so I guess they weren’t all that interested after all.
I emailed back and forth with another couple, answering a lot of questions and sending them photos, and on Tuesday they said they wanted to fly down from Atlanta and take a look at it Sunday. But then, just like the first couple, not a word after that. I understand that sometimes things don’t work out, but it would be nice to at least get a quick email saying they were going a different direction and telling us not to sit around and expect them.
At any rate, since the community rules say we can only leave the RV parked in front of our house for three or four days to load and unload, and it had been there over a week, yesterday we moved it back to the storage area.
We talked about putting it on consignment at an RV dealer, but I’ve heard some horror stories about folks who have done that, including one couple we know who put their beautiful truck conversion on consignment and basically had it disappear. It took them a lot of time and effort to finally track it down, and I don’t know that they ever did get all the money out of it they had coming. I would also have to talk to Chris Yust from C&C Insurance, who handles all of our insurance, to be sure we would be covered in a situation like that.
In the ads in some of the places where I have it advertised, I mentioned that I would consider a nice pontoon boat as part trade. Nothing has happened along that line, but I did have a fellow contact me about this gorgeous 1959 Mercury convertible, asking if I would be interested in it. There was a time when I would have jumped all over that deal, but my interests have changed. Besides, I can only put so much in the garage. Miss Terry said so.
Congratulations Pat Dugand, winner of our drawing for an autographed copy of Terry’s cookbook, Miss Terry’s Kitchen. We had 238 entries this time around. Stay tuned, a new contest starts soon.
