At Last

After reading the forum since 2009 and thinking I wanted a used 17 Escape I ordered a 21 today. Pick up date November 30. I brought my husband out to see them last year and he said he wanted the 21 because of the dinette in the back and the extra width. We have a 1974 tent trailer I am so looking forward to having a bathroom. My friends say I should name it At Last. They are tired of hearing me talk about it.

Tell them that this is only the beginning! All of those options to consider. And wait until you get it. Congratulations on finally putting in the order. Now you have the fun of choosing everything for it. Yes, you will be so glad to have the bathroom, I'm sure.

See below the lyrics to the song "At Last", written in 1941 and a hit for Etta James in the early 1960's. All the lyrics seem appropriate, but note the specially the last line. Sounds like a great name for your trailer, and you can have Etta James singing the namesake song on an endless loop.

AT LAST
At last my love has come along
My lonely days are over and life is like a song, oh yeah
At last the skies above are blue
My heart was wrapped up clover the night I looked at you
I found a dream that I could speak to
A dream that I can call my own
I found a thrill to press my cheek to
A thrill I've never known, oh yeah
You smiled, you smiled oh and then the spell was cast
And here we are in Heaven
For you are mine at last

The Etta James version of that song is one of my all time favourites. Would be a great theme song to go along with a trailer name.

I love Etta James and especially that song, I am not sure my husband will want a name on the trailer but if he does ...
The options will have to be kept to a minimum as we are paying in Canadian, and the 21 has gone up about $5,000 in the last three years. I am so glad to have finally ordered it. At Last
