Hi. My name is Kelby. My wife and I are from Branson, MO. I have been using Sunlineclub since last October, so I thought I should finally introduce myself.
Last summer we worked at Shenandoah National Park. It was my 7th national park to work in. We had recently gotten a dog, so it limited us from staying in employee housing like I normally would. We wanted to search for a camper because there was one rv spot left for employees (2 total). We considered many types of trailers. The idea was that we could save money with a trailer compared to renting in Luray, VA, not to mention the gas driving up and down the mountain daily.
After much Craigslist searching and driving to all points of Virginia, we found a Sunline Advancer in Richmond, VA. It had water damage and part of the ceiling in the rear had been taken down to reveal the damage. Hey, it was cheap. He wanted $2200. I offered $1500. He accepted the offer minus the gas/electric refrigerator. He kept it and probably sold it to make up the difference. Perfect. We stayed in the camper all summer and through October, with the rear covered and closed off. We just used the front and the bathroom. Nice and cozy for a newlywed couple. Not a care in the world.
As it figured out on paper, we got ourselves a free trailer and more. I contemplated selling it after the season ended, as was the original plan. But we kept it. I just love it. We took a few weeks getting back to Missouri, enjoying the beauty of the Smoky Mountains along the way.
Getting back home, I started right away. Demolition! Luckily we have had a mild winter and she is almost finished. Can't wait for summer camping.
They say, "Virginia is for Lovers". We are expecting a baby girl in May.
