‘Counting On’: Austin Forsyth & Joy-Anna Duggar Buy Money Pit – Can They Fix It?

Counting On‘s Austin Forsyth and Joy-Anna Duggar do a good job with home improvement projects. But TLC fans worry they might have bitten off more than they can chew.

Counting On: Joy-Anna Duggar & Austin Forsyth Take Dangerous Trip

Joy-Anna Duggar and husband Austin Forsyth bought an RV off an internet auction site. It came from claimed vehicles from insurance cases, and the people told them it didn’t run. The Counting On couple said it was a 1999 model motorhome.

Counting On wife Joy-Anna said they were excited to see their new toy and they could get it on a workday because the roads were icy. No one was driving on them, and they thought it was a good idea to take advantage of the situation.

Joy-Anna Duggar loaded up all of the kid’s food and games for the road. And they headed down to Conway, Arkansas, which is about two and a half hours from their house. They made it there safely, and Joy-Anna told Austin she felt surprised about how huge the RV was.

Not What Joy-Anna Expected

Joy-Anna from the show Counting On opened the door to the motorhome and immediately regretted it. She said it smelled terrible, and she saw water on the dash of it. She said she did not expect the smell to be so terrible, but she seemed excited about the rest of the RV.

Austin Forsyth had brought some batteries to put in the RV. He thought that might be the issue with why it wouldn’t start up and drive. After three hours of working on it, Counting On husband Austin finally got it rolling.

Joy-Anna said it was a beautiful sound to hear the engine. Counting On fans said it is good that Austin Forsyth knows how to do these things. But it seemed like they might have felt like they bit off more than they could chew.

Counting On: Austin & Family Back on the Road

Joy-Anna Duggar said she and Austin hit the road about 9:30 am. By 7:30 pm, they had already made three stops on the way home, and the RV would only go 35 mph on the interstate. So, they stopped to get some ice cream while Austin Forsyth went to check to see what he could do.

Counting On wifey Joy-Anna said they did make it home later that evening. But she said if they worked on the RV – it would take a lot of effort. They are still trying to figure out if they want to do major work on it or just do some cosmetic things.

Whatever the case, fans of the show Counting On said they had a pretty cool adventure and they were glad they were safe on the icy roads.
