The Diary of The Remote RV Investor–Episode 143

Well it is the end of Sherman!

Yes it is official, after traveling over 50,000 miles behind the RV and over 107,000 miles taking our family all over this beautiful country, Sherman Tank, that’s what the kids called him, is officially scrapped.

Unfortunately in September of 2023 I was involved in an accident in Sherman and because of the tow receiver being on the front of the vehicle, the damages were too severe and the insurance scrapped him.  The kids called him Sherman Tank because up until the time we had gotten him it was the biggest vehicle I had owned.  We had gotten him because the previous vehicle, called Wildebeast, had just got totaled because we got sandwiched on the freeway in a big pile up.  So the kids were hoping this one was going to be as tough as a Sherman Tank.

We had many good memories in Sherman.  The kids loved it when they found out the whole back could convert into a queen sized bed.  They quickly determined that was how they thought they should travel from now on, obviously this was not mom approved.  Sherman was often loaded down with 3 bikes, camping gear, hiking gear, parts and tools for any number of properties, and mom’s emergency kit.  I loved the fact that as Elizabeth got older and we no longer had teenage girls to tote around, Jonathan and teenage boys were much larger.  So any car that basically full grown men can climb into the back and not complain is a win in my book.

The accident happened in Sept 2023 but it took our insurance this long to finally come to terms and settle our payout.  Thankfully we already got a new one, but the kids haven’t named em yet.  Hmm, maybe we need a naming ceremony?

Here’s a pic of the new car, what do you think we should call it?  I’d love to hear your thoughts, maybe next week we can announce the winning name.

Until the next adventure….
