We were going to buy it anyway, but when our son started to get sicker and it was obvious my husband aggravated the situation, we bought a 32 foot camper with 2 huge pull-outs from a foreclosure place here.
We still had to put some money into it over the past year and a half, but he takes water to it in those 250 gallon caged containers, takes the waste to a local campground to dump & runs the generator and batteries for power. He skirted it in & insulated it underneath so he doesn’t have much of a problem in the winter.
It was fun to start, but he’s getting tired of it so we’ll put something more permanent out there - hopefully next year.
He’s not roughing it by any means - he has air conditioning, a furnace, a nice sized refrigerator, queen-sized bed, a 50-inch LED TV. It’s probably better than some apartments. He just gets tired of all the work it takes to keep it going, but for the weekends, it wouldn’t be so bad.
He also has a couple tractors, ATV’s, all his hunting dogs, a bunch of chickens, neighbors he’s friends with - he’s always got something to do out there. It’s even close to his hunt club and several huge state parks where he can go fishing and stuff.
