As our winter has remained above average, spring fever is setting in early. We made a trek to the Chicago RV show on Saturday. The crowd must have felt the same and was quite large. Driving in and parking a pain. We made the trip with Wendy's brother and (maybe someday sister in law)tic. They were looking at bunkhouse 5th wheels. Saw one that was a possible. Wendy said she didn't see one she liked better than ours, whew!
There is usually one thing or two at shows that stick out as the best new thing. We saw some with complete outdoor cooking centers, stove, fridge, and sinks. The neatest thing I saw was in a 5th wheel which name escapes me, but it had a double long bunk that was driven up and down by elec. motors. The neat part was it was in the large slide out over a couch and table. Probably 10 ft or more, said to hold 800 lb. yeah, got to do better at taking pics for the blog-sorry.
I was waiting to the end to hit the booths, looking for those items that we have been waiting to buy for fulltiming. I found a nice set of wheel chocks. So now I can burn the old chunks of firewood that I have been using.(moving up now:). Hey, I did paint em yellow. I also almost pulled the trigger on new GPS, but did not like the 9.5% sales tax. Really glad I didn't as later searching I found the unit cheaper and got a15% Quartzite discount. with no tax saved about $80. We ordered the Rand Mcnally 7710 from Recreation Nation.
Well, Wendy said she would be happy if we have at least one showing a week. Got a call for one tomorrow. Keep the fingers crossed.
