Here's a big honkin' hint

More when I'm back in NM (in Flagstaff for the moment) but I won't make you all wait any longer for a bit of reveal. You've all been very patient but I can feel your hackles starting to rise. I didn't expect to hold this secret so long but I've been super busy; apologies for making you wait. Now we can all relax, or at least you can, I've got a ton of driving to do. :)




1990 Aero Cruiser, all of 23' long!










Happy now? I am! :) And I made new friends in the process!

Kyle, Julia, and Ender
Luckily for me, these terrific folks who live and work on the road decided that 23' was too big for them.   They're off in search of the perfect truck camper and I have every confidence they'll find it. It was really great meeting them and I hope our paths cross again someday. I may be old enough to be their mom (*gasp choke*) but they feel like kindred spirits.

More later!

    1. I know, it looks really big in the pictures. I kept looking at the ad thinking "is that a typo?" Nope, it really is 23'.

      Thanks!

  3. That's not a hint, that's the REVEAL! I'm with Jeanne, in the photos it looks huge. I can't wait to see it in person. Looks really nice inside and out. Congratulations! Have you taken possession? :)

    1. Thanks! It's in near perfect condition. Yes, it's all mine. I slept in it last night and love love love the cozy rear bed. I nearly froze to death but that was me underestimating what Flagstaff could still do at night.

  4. So, where does the litter box go? That is one of the first things I look for now when I go 'window' rv shopping.

      Thanks! They did manage to squeeze in a lot of yummy. Even freezing half to death on my first night, I still loved the feeling and coziness of the rear bed.

  18. There is a lot to be said about coziness. I had several Volkswagon Camper vans years ago & loved them. Small can really work well when there is just one person. You will totally love your new manueverability

    1. Jake's the only one who's been in it yet but I think the cats will like it with so many perches and views.

  24. Ummmmm...lots of windows to catch those delicous cross breezes! Nice, just so nice. My cats approve 100%, and I definately do, too. Good thing the motorhome you previously wanted so bad didn't work out, and now you finally know why it didn't! I'll do a happy dance just for you! It's truly awesome.
