My RVing Days May Be Over

<<Mikeblogs Home

Yesterday was a bad day. I took The Breeze in for what I thought would be a simple repair. It turns out that I will need major brake work (again), various oil leaks fixed, new headers, at least 2 gaskets and whatever else that they may find.

The cost of these repairs is going to exceed the value of the RV. I've thought about various scenarios to get it road worthy again but I think it's time to get rid of it. So I will explore various avenues and hopefully be rid of it within the month.

I knew when I bought it that its life expectancy was not going to be long. It was a former rental that was 7 years old and had 136000 miles. And I didn't put a lot of money into it until just recently. But I put over 13000 miles on it in the 7 years that I have owned it and have stayed in about 55 campgrounds with it during that time. Will I ever get another RV? I enjoyed the RV lifestyle very much. However, now that I am retired and money is tighter I really don t have much choice other than to give this hobby up. But is sure was fun!
