motorhome at Sun City RV
Our Phaeton motorhome at Sun City RV for sale

I got a call a few days ago from Sun City RV, where our 2012 Phaeton 40QTH motorhome is on consignment sale. While it has not yet sold, they reported a lot of interest in it. As of that date there had been over 240 online clicks on the listing, and over 200 of them were unique (meaning a first-time visit). There had been at least one party that had done a lot of follow-through but did not make an offer to purchase. We are hoping that with the return of many snowbirds to the Valley, interest will pick up even more and that our dear motorhome will be sold. Continue reading Motorhome sale update.

We took more steps in getting our house decorated for Halloween today. This morning Pete Petersen came over and started helping Elaine put up some decorations – the ones requiring use of a ladder – while I was at a doctor appointment.

more motorhome stuff
Five more tubs and some other stuff was added to the pile today

I went back to the motorhome this morning, while it was cooler (about 90°) to remove more stuff. I hauled five more plastic tubs back to the house plus some other loose items, but I still have to purchase at least three more large tubs to finish the kitchen! It always amazes us how much stuff can get stored away in a motorhome! The pile on the patio is growing and growing. The next difficult job will be to sort through all this to decide what will go into the next motorhome we have. There is no question that that next motorhome will be smaller, and so there will be less room in which to store items. What’s more, we will only be using the new rig on an occasional basis rather than fulltime as we did in the Phaeton, so we won’t need to carry as much in any case.
