Squeezed the trigger

OK. We are on the hook for a 5.0TA in July. All excited, but big dilemma. When we bought the classic, we did not expect the Casita to sell as fast as it did and were consequently camper free for almost a year. This time we already have trips lined up through next June. We could cancel any or all of them, but what fun is that? I would like to not own two trailers at the same time, but that could happen. Be nice if someone in the Great Northwest wanted to take possession of a classic in early July and we could just swap it out there.
Not the worst problem to have.
At least the exchange rate is about as much in my favor as it was against me the last time.
Now I have to go through the "options dance" again. Better than Casita. The option choices did not take long at all.

Dick

I don't think you'll have trouble selling it quick. Maybe you wait to post it for sale until June?

That is probably what I will do. The nice thing about listing it early is that I can sit on my price for a couple of months before I have to deal. That was the problem with the Casita. I listed the maximum I wanted and thought I would have more time. 3 days!

Hi: captmath... Everyone should have such a "Big dilemma". You will be pleased though. You might want to upgrade your Nissan Frontier's mirrors. I did. Alf

Curious metaphor. I looked all over my 19' and couldn't find one anywhere.

Congrats.
