‘Is that your car,’ I ask her?’
‘Yes, Do you want to buy it?’
So after a test run, an AA check , and a leap of faith, I say yes.
My regular Trade Me alerts me to a caravan in our specifications.
’This could be the day, There might just be a red caravan today.’
Why red? To avoid the universal beige and autumn tonings of so many caravans- bland and boring- I love colour, especially red. When you are in a tiny space you need colour and design to make you smile.
I open up Trade Me- and here it is- a tiny Compass Lynx caravan, the right price, in Rotorua,
Danielle drove to Rotorua the next day, inspected it with the owners, Maggie and Peter, and rang me..
‘It’s gorgeous, I love it.’
