To sell or not to sell? That is the question.
To upgrade or not to upgrade? That is the question.
This is our home. Our stability. We own it completely. As a couple of “nomads” we don’t own much but we do own our home on wheels. We are at that point now looking for the next option. We started our travelling around Oz with our dear little RV Oz-Tent which we still use frequently. We upgraded to our MDC in 2012 and it has completed many, many, many miles with us and we have lived in it for months on end. Is it time to upgrade to a pop-top style camper? Is it time to no longer have so much god damn canvas in our lives? Or will we miss it? I know at times after we brought the camper we missed our tent. (Crazy, right) It’s an attachment that you grow from putting the contraption up and down every day. The MDC camper is so easy to put and down and we can be set up in minutes. For those longer stays I often think we would be better in something similar to the MDC XT-10 but would we really? Do we need something that flash?
The eternal question: should we just be happy with what we’ve got?
If money was no option and we could design our own ideal home on wheels what would we like? Hopefully not like my above drawing although I guess we would get everyone’s attention.
Here’s our wish list:
- total off-road capability
- independent suspension
- lower than our tow vehicle while towing to cut down on wind resistance
- a pop-top or similar
- outdoor kitchen
- plenty of storage inside and out
- bed ready (meaning when we stop we can crawl in to bed asap for those long days)
- limited set up time
- don’t want to be restricted where we can take our home on wheels
- little to no canvas
- external fridge
Something like the Market Direct Camper’s XT-10 or a Jayco Outback Eagle (without the slide-outs really)
