RV adventure - Part 1

Fran and I decided a while ago that we really needed a motor home. It's the perfect solution for spinster sisters with five dogs and high hopes of getting out of town - at least once in a while.
So we found the perfect one on, of all places, Ebay! And oddly enough - we won it.
The down side of the transaction - we're in the Chicago area and the RV was in New Hampshire. A week ago Saturday I flew into Boston, the seller picked me up at Logan airport, and took me to the RV. He gave me a quick introduction to the workings of the machine (no, I'd never driven one before), took his check, and took off. Leaving me alone at the top of a mountain with a mountainous vehicle.
It wasn't until a couple of days before I left that a few people mentioned that I was "intrepid" and "brave" for flying across the country to pick up an RV and drive it back. No one bothered to say anything before we bought it. Thanks, guys!
I'll let you in on the secret now. It was fun!

No. Freakin. Way. This is the coolest thing ever.

Does it have a name? Can you see over the dash? (I kid).

OMG, I have so many questions...

It's totally perfect for what you need! It was so fun to see it (I agree you need to name it) and you on your maiden voyage! Having all the comforts of home while on the road - priceless! We take off in Big Earl this weekend - see if we can have a maintenance-free trip for once!
