RV Remodel | Carpet Removal on Stairs

RV Renovation Carpet Removal

One of the first things to go on our new RV was the carpet on the stairs.  I know why they put it there, because it is cost effective; however what a place to have it.   RIGHT when you walk in from the great outdoors.  Whose idea was that?   Anyway, the removal of […]

How heavy is your water tank? (Repair)

How heavy is your water tank?  Well mine weighs 741 lbs full.   First thing that I thought about when I saw that statistic on the door of the RV was… I hope they have a strong support system for that.   I was first alerted to the weight last year when we broke our […]

Go Ahead Wash the RV | How Long Can It Take?

As we filled up the tank somewhere off “The 10” in Arizona, I looked over and noticed a Truck Wash next door.  Without hesitation, I leaned into the cab of the truck, “Jen, you want to get the RV washed at the Truck Wash?” “YES PLEASE” she exclaimed. So it was settled, we topped off […]

Broken Leaf Springs on the RV | New Mexico

After leaving White Sands National Monument, we headed back to the RV, topped it off with a full tank of fresh water and took off. Our goal was to make it all the way to Buckeye Hills Regional Park in Buckeye AZ,  but that destination was 420 miles away.   Knowing we might need to overnight in […]

Eight Signs You Need an RV in Your Life

  Maybe you never really thought about yourself spending time in a “camper”.  Call it a camper, trailer, rv, coach, whatever; the idea of anyone and everyone you know having one is more realistic than you think.  We never imagined ourselves in an RV like what we currently own,  but I guess we never truly […]

After our stay in Maryland, our next destination was Bluff City, Tennessee.   A relatively small campground located about 10 minutes from Bristol Motor Speedway for you NASCAR fans.  Since our stay was early January and COMPLETELY off season, we got to use our Passport America discount and stay for 50% off.  This time of year […]

RV Screen Door Acrylic Retrofit | Single Biggest RV Modification

One of the main dislikes about RV doors is that they rarely have enough light coming through.   The screen door is perfect but in cooler climates we quickly realized that wasn’t an option.  So for  cold or rainy day we are stuck with the outside door being closed and minimal light entering the right […]

Broomstick Handle | Flashlight | Falling Cabinets

This is a little RV repair post about a small problem we saw developing in our RV.  As we noticed on the new 2016 Evergreen BayHill’s they have done away with the upper curved cabinets that go over the couches.    We were curious as to why they would do that but I think we […]

RV Bunk Bed Room Remodel Bay Hill Fifth Wheel

One of the unnecessary items we quickly noted when shopping for our RV was the extra couch in the girls’ bunk room.  In our earlier post you saw that we immediately knew that was going to go somewhere else and it did.  Click here to view that post.  After I built the railings for the […]

Our First Camping Trip and 4 New Tires

Cape Cod Our first trip was quite a fun filled adventure.  We had never done this before and were looking forward to all it could entail.  We had no idea what might be ahead, but we packed our cameras, fuelled up and headed out. We hopped on the highway and after only 3 exits…  BOOM […]

Shaylas Kitchen

It was now the Summer of 2012 and I had booked a series of shoots in Cape Cod for a group of different families. We thought about making a mini vacation out of the time we needed to be there, but wait; what will we do for Shayla’s food?  She can’t eat at any restaurants […]
