The Winnebagos winter storage at the skiresort took a new turn.
The wife, kid and fatty himself drove the W up in the mountains. They spent the better of 4 days to get the W attached to the 10 square metres "cabin".
When the temperature
dropped to around 3 degrees centigrades, the cold was apparent. Buddy Joe regretted not putting down the 6mm insulation plates and heatfoil under the vinylfloors while he was at it. Still, the inside temperature was acceptable.
The gastank access was
blocked by the "cabin". This was acceptable considering other heating and cooking options. The wife bought one of those small ovens.
The watertank was drained and it woud be a minor hassle to use the servicecenter to do the washing and other stuff needing
The craptanks was emptied and cleaned. Again, thinking it would be alright to use the servicecentre for the .....You know what.
It just so happened that The Wife, The kid and lard ass was invited to some fellow campers down
the road. They spent their time in one of those modern campers that You pull with Your car. What was strikingly apparent was the heat inside the camper. Would You know that they had floorheating in addition to central heat based upon antifreeze/coolant liquid?
The gas for cooking was beeing supplied from portable gasbottles in a seperate room in the camper.
They even had a watertank wich was easily filled and drained. They had a crapper onboard with a detachable tank.
When leaving the camper, The
wife and lardass was somewhat dumdstruck. They had no idea that todays modern campers was that advanced. "What to do now?" Buddy Joe asked The Wife. She on the other hand had already made the decision.."lets have a look on the net to see whats available" she
The next day, Fat Joe and family was the proud owner of a 8 metre camper with all the necessities avaiable, beds for seven, a crapper, shower, tanks, gas, floorheating and central heating.
So, what to do with the Winnebago?
the interior upgrades are still ongoing after Buddy Joe dismounted the "cabin" and brought the W back to the shop. We got the front seats back from the interiorguy, still waiting for the dinette.
The W is now in the paintshop getting painted in a Mercedes
1798 Santini Beige color. Yes, it is gold. The W will be used for spring, summer and fall travels. The camper will stay attached to the "cabin" and will be used during winter.
We are back...se below.
