I think you took the metaphor a little to the extreme. My wife is anything but high maintenance and enjoys adventure but I don't think either of us would last very long in a trailer home. (see Bichon's commnets) Please note the rest of my comment as these two sentences were taken out of context:
True, I didn't quote the entire paragraph or post (my posts tend to be a bit large, I try to trim where I can). But still, a poster said "If you go fishin' for a trash fish, you gonna get a trash fish!" and you basically agreed.
But note...the comment I really had issue was the "trash fish" one. Your post quoting it just brought it back to my attention, and I decided to respond.
Basic ammenities like running water, central air conditioning, and electricity are things that most women would consider necessities in a home. Maybe I'm out of touch with what most women expect/hope for in a place to be called home.http://www.colonialairstream.com/airstr ... index.html
It's an airstream, it has a/c (not central air, but a/c nonetheless), electric and water hookups, etc. Definitely nicer (rather, it looks nicer...I have no idea on build quality) than the converted bookmobile we lived in. And more living space too (I think we had 25-28 feet from the back of the driver's seat to the rear of the rv...the one I linked to is 31'). Is this the one the OP is looking at? Probably not...though he (heck, do we even KNOW he's a he...I mean, we are just assuming after all) said he's becoming a doctor, so who knows?
Our family lived in an RV for over nine months. And it wasn't anywhere as nice as the type of airstream a doctor could afford. So for someone to say a woman who'd consider living in one must not be in her right mind, or be "trash fish"...it does make me quite upset. Hopefully I didn't come off too rude.
Heck, even if you do think of women as fish to be caught...this is a finance forum after all, right? Does it make more financial sense to catch a "trash fish" who's happy with someone who is living in an airstream (and would even consider living in one too) and thinks it's a good idea to wait several years to save up and build a house with cash...or a nice shiny fish who will only consider you if you're living in a house with a big mortgage?
