Marcos Vigil didn’t care that a bunch of adults tricked him. All he knew was that he is now the proud owner of a brand-new camper — an 18-foot Keystone Hideout.

The nearly 9-year-old Española boy, who was born with gastroschisis, said he plans to use the recreational vehicle for camping, playing, sleeping, doing homework — and living.

All because he expressed his desire to Make-A-Wish New Mexico for a camper to take him into the great outdoors and keep him safe on the road as he travels to Nebraska for medical attention.

“He’s been waiting for so long for this,” said his mother, Vanessa Tapia, who with some 15 family members surprised her son with the camper Wednesday at the Chisolm Trail RV dealership in Albuquerque.
