So the scoop is, we have a 2004 F150 4x4, with an about to be completed freshened and upgraded 5.4L V8 (Updated cam phasers, timing set, and Melling High Volume oil pump to fix the known weak points of this engine. I am fixing my old truck because, well I can't afford a new 1 ton truck. We have on offer for barter, a mid 90s Coleman Pop up that is in overall good condition and can get us out camping right now. Problem... My wife dreams of a beautiful rolling house, a fifth wheel toy hauler even though the only toys we have to haul are canoes and bicycles, and there are only the two of us... I know she is going to have to give in somewhat on her desire for a rolling Taj Majal for various reasons, not the least of which is we can't afford it. And secondly, I don't want to haul a monstrosity of an RV all over the place. I am just not sure at what point wisdom would dictate I hold my line as it were. If we wait for her dream to come true, we will never get out and do anything, but if we go with a less than approach, I fear she is going to end up resentful and we might as well have stayed put and not done anything... Even if we skip on the Coleman, and go with something different, what is a good intermediate point?
