The back door pics need some clicks.... Boring times make for boring pics.
All of today's pictures have something in common, I took them all while sticking my camera out the door so I didn't have to get out into the cold. Nowadays 60° is cold to me, especially since the clouds bring in higher humidity.
Thanks to Larry for asking some questions that can be used as a blog post while I'm sitting in the bronco with nothing to do on a cold rainy day. Because of the weather here in Tucson, I haven't been doing too much of late, so there's not much to write about. And occasionally, it's been so cold I don't even go outside; I just stick my camera out the door and take a picture of whatever's there.
My next steps, much like my life, are unplanned and serendipitous. I never seem to have plans; I have ideas, thoughts, and concepts, but I rarely have a plan. But I do have a relative interested in buying the Arctic Fox, and as you mentioned, RVs are in demand nowadays, so I think selling it wouldn't be a problem.
The Arctic Fox would make a great home base, but it's sitting in my daughter's driveway, taking up space that they could use for something else, and I could use the money to help defray the cost of whatever camper I end up with.
I've mostly been looking at used truck campers on the Internet; of course, the RV dealers do most of the advertising on the Internet, so I get exposed to a lot of information about new campers, whether I like it or not.
New truck campers seem to come in two varieties. Four thousand pound outrageously expensive monsters. And relatively inexpensive cheap junk that may fall apart before getting it home. I can neither afford nor do I have the ability to tote around the monsters, but I do have some skills in repairing things, so amongst the new truck campers, I tend to gravitate towards the cheap junk.
Used truck campers are around, but they tend to be very expensive for what you're getting. And the monsters tend to be the most prevalent on the used market because people that bought them usually had 1-ton trucks and the ability to carry them around. But because of my three-quarter-ton truck, I'm mostly looking at smaller, lighter-weight models.
The brand that I end up looking at the most is Lance. Because they are probably the largest manufacturer of truck campers, they have smaller and lighter models.
Since I'm looking at smaller, lighter-weight truck campers, I'm hoping I won't have to do any upgrades to my truck. It has Timbrens on the rear axle, which helps support the weight a little, and keeps the rear end from sagging.... That's the truck's rear end, not mine, I haven't found anything yet that will keep my rear end from sagging, I'm just hoping the Timbrens are all it will need because further suspension upgrades can get pretty expensive.
