Nope

I didn't buy the Van. It seemed to have dash problems and the A/C didn't work. Dash problems can get expensive and who knows what else in there was bad. And we sure all know how expensive A/C repair or replacement can be. Since it was an 1983 model I just don't think I want that kind of work. I would have to sell my truck which is a lot newer than that van. And I like my truck. I'm sure it would be much cheaper to replace things on and older model than the newer ones but I will take my chances on the truck.

I didn't do much today but spray once again for the weeds and clean up the fountain and fill it with water. By then my back was not happy with me so I took some Tylenol and had some lunch. After I felt better I  hung out on the porch and thought  about doing things out there. 

Tomorrow I want to back the truck into the driveway and change things around to see if I can make more room for a small chair. But I will take it easy, today was enough anger for my back and don't want to mess that up.

Good Night All

  1. I think you are smart to keep your truck. I know I've mentioned it often enough, but if I had a truck I would buy a teardrop trailer and town it along. There's your bedroom as well as the kitchen.

  2. I like Gypsy's idea. I know,a van would also work but you'd have to find one in great shape which makes the price so much higher. Good luck with the search.

  4. Hi Gypsy,

    I was hoping for a van so if I really had to I could steath camp. I really wanted to do some traveling. I'm just going to have to make the truck work.

    Hi Sandie,

    The truck has a little more room than the Little Guy Tear Drop, but no kitchen. I do have a stove and what ever else I need and could just put up the screen room. I think the gas is better in the truck than thos big engines in the vans.

  5. Sounds like you made the right decisions. None of those problems you mentioned are cheap to fix. Of course, what is!

    Nope not cheap for sure. And yes these days nothing is cheap.

    Hi Phyllis,

    Yes I want to leap but then I stop and think it through and those problems may have been just the begining

  7. It does sound like it is going to require a lot of work to get that van in good condition...You will find the answer and when you do you will know its a good fit for you.

  8. Hi Sondra,

    Yes I don't want to have to go thru a load of money to get it all fixed up. If I knew someone who could fix these things for just a few dollars that would be OK but I don't. I still just want a van like yours and I will be happy.

  9. You will no the right rig when you find it or find new ways to make what you have work. I have seen some great reno's on trucks and cargo vans lately to minimize moving contents and lifting, all things to help out your back. Sending good vibes for you hunt to find what works best for you!

  10. Hi Karen,

    Yes if only my truck was full size there wouldn't be a problem. So I will figure out something without spending a lot of money. Thanks for the good vibes
