The Shoemaker's Kids
You've heard the old story of how the shoemaker's kids went barefoot? Well, this is the story of the RV salesman's RV. (No time for camping when you're in the RV business!) This tiny camper is our RV. I call it the "Barbie Dream House," because it is about the size and shape of a Barbie house. (Yes, it is as small as it looks!) Actually, no more than we get to camp, it is the perfect size. It is an Aliner, whose motto is "Friends don't let friends sleep under canvas." And true enough, the hard top does keep us dry and warm. We use it for sleep and that is about it, which is (after all) the whole idea of camping. It can stow a lot of gear and is light to tow. There is no bathroom which is sometimes a drawback. Mind you, I am not complaining. It beats a tent or not camping at all. And we sure provide a conversation piece any time we camp. So if you see the Barbie Dream House out this weekend, come by and visit. The tours don't take long!
