Selling a Part of Our History and Moving On

It’s official. The time has come to say goodbye to Tequila, our much-loved truck camper. As reported last fall, when we made a commitment to Camp CDA for the next few years we decided to move into trailer life with Taco, our Lance travel trailer. Tequila spent the winter cozy and safe undercover in town but now has once again emerged in order to move onto a new home.

Before we purchased her from the dealer in 2013 we hadn’t had much experience with Adventurer campers but we have come to appreciate the brand. Even after 2 years of extremely frequent camping and 2 years of full-time living, Tequila is still in fine shape.

Here is a quick rundown of what comes standard in an Adventurer 80SK~

Dry weight: 1406lbs
Queen bed
4 cubic two-way fridge
2 burner propane cooktop
Fantastic fan
15-gallon water tank
Rear awning
16000 BTU furnace
Outside shower
Screen door
Happi jacks

One of my favorite things about Tequila was the huge amount of counter space. Even compared to Taco, other truck campers, and even some RV’s, the ability to fit a large IKEA cutting board for prep and still have counter space is a true rarity.

However, perhaps much more important is all of the upgrades we did making her the perfect overlanding or weekender rig~

150-watt solar panel
Two-way Fantastic fan
Custom dining table of 100-year old barn wood
3-inch memory foam mattress topper
Trasharoo bag
7-gallon water jerry can
2X 4 gallon fuel jerry cans
Sand tracks
Outdoor speakers
New water pump
Magnetic knife rack
Side awning
LED light strip under countertop
All LED lights
Electric converter
Exterior mount for a 2-gallon propane canister
roof rack

From 10,000 feet in Guatemala to sea-level all over Mexico to exploring the Western US, we never had a single issue. The new owner will simply need to add a cassette toilet (or not as we gave ours away due to lack of use. Anyone wanting it can check with Calvin at Overlander Oasis in Oaxaca as it is probably still there!)

We are sad to see Tequila go after years and miles and memories. But we are sure whatever home she goes to will appreciate her as much as we did!
