Fast forward a couple of years and we realize that fun may not necessarily what we need. The Jeep is a two door and utilizing anything in the backseat was next to impossible. The dogs din't have much room, I had no room for groceries, etc. We couldn't hear ourselves talk, and the shocks were, well, not great.
After a lot of debate, we decided to do what we should have done earlier. We figured out that what we needed was a truck. A crew cab, so there was a back seat, and lots of cargo space in the truck bed. We went to Tampa to start looking and found what we needed. It's a 2005 Chevrolet Silverado and it will suit our needs perfectly. There is room under the back seat for the stroller, as well as my grocery bags. There is plenty of room in front for what we need, and the bed will hold anything we need, even possibly a golf car in the future. It rides well, and the seats are comfortable.
We plan on getting it maintenanced very shortly. The two things that have to be done are the tow package must be installed in front, so we can tow it behind the motorhome. Until then, I'll have to drive it.
We also need to get running boards installed. Nothing fancy, but it's too tall for me to get in and out of comfortably. Hopefully that will happen soon.
We were sad to say goodbye to Sunny, but when living nomadically like we do, we have to do what's practical for us. Another lesson learned.
