Hernando Beach: Weeki Wachee & Homosassa Springs

Hernando Beach is located in Florida, about 35 miles north of Tampa. This quaint town has uncrowded beaches, wildlife parks, and so much more! On our way down to south Florida, we were able to yard camp with family in Hernando Beach. We really enjoyed our time with family, not to mention the view and location was pretty amazing!

Van Purchase & Initial Shakedown

Here’s our video from the day Alan went to purchase and pick up our new-to-us van! We were so very excited to see it for the first time! We were very lucky in finding a unicorn of a Promaster all the way in Connecticut. This was a rare find because it is an empty cargo van (with 2k miles and hardly used). Most cargo vans have high mileage and have been put through the ringer. It’s also rare, because most cargo vans do not have windows because they’re used for deliveries. This one has windows, much like passenger vans. We jumped at this purchase when we saw it and are happy we did!

“Buy Used” They Said…

One of the first suggestions you’ll see when beginning your RV search is recommendations to buy used and never buy new! We heard these recommendations too and took them to heart. “All the kinks will be worked out if you buy used” they say. For our RV search, we never really looked for new versus used, we just searched our floorplan and the closest one (still 3 hrs away) happened to be new. The next closest (18 hrs away) was also new. So, as you see, we didn’t have many options with this particular floorplan. So…we bought new.

Reflecting Back on Our Purchase

20160901_190810

When we first purchased our travel trailer, we did so under the assumption that we would be doing weekend or week long trips whenever we could, with the possibility of living in it fulltime for six months or so, many years down the road. My husband wanted a toy hauler and I wanted a “homey” feel. Together, we both wanted to be able to watch movies, entertain, or do dishes after the kiddo went to bed. Our child isn’t one who will sleep with tons of noise, so we knew the extra bedroom was a must. Once we knew what we wanted, we began the online search. Between floor plans, weight allowances, and price, we narrowed down the search fairly easily.
