With most things, it's kind of like that old rule when it comes to home remodeling. Whatever you think it's going to cost, your wrong. It's going to cost more. And we started out looking at a 13 ft. Scamp. Loren

Yep. Everything takes twice as long and costs twice as much as you think!

Meanwhile, y'all are some lucky dawgs to have yours!
Just consider it a delay. I delayed seven years, all the while squirrling money away in my Escape piggy bank. Do keep an eye out for a used Escape, you may find one close by within your budget, but you won't know if you don't keep looking (and saving.)

And yes, do stick around!

Thanks, Donna! We intend to keep hacking at it.

You are my idol, btw. I saw you a lot over in the Casita forum. Your avatar is unmistakable!

Oh my stars, that's not a picture of me, that's an avatar. I don't look anything like that. "She" is richer and younger than me

And, I don't look like a toad. I see a prince when I look in the mirror.
