Sell house, buy truck

How many people have had a conversation with their partner which is based on the "sell house (worth X thousand pounds) buy this truck (for much less than X thousand pounds) " principle. Then you explain that the family get to live in a truck anywhere you choose in the whole wide world with the remaining cash from the house sale funding your future happy days.

Surely it's an absolute no brainer

It is im sure. Unfortunatly for me having spent so many years living the happy life i don't have a house to sell (i rent at the mo) and so can't do that. I don't regret it as i have had many years of fun exploring asia (but I do regret it a bit today as i can't sell my house to buy this mog!)

Tobais, if you PM me again with your email i can forward you the pic's - i can't PM you back as i have yet to make 8 posts.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love.
