Our New House

It was brought to my attention that we haven’t updated our Blog since 2013. Since we have become stagnant and haven’t really traveled for a while I didn’t have much of interest to post. Not that our life isn’t interesting, there just isn’t much RV Travel going on.

Well recently we have turned another page in our lives. We decided since we like our lifestyle so much that buying a house wasn’t in our plans. However we have pretty much outgrown the RV so…

We bought a Park Model home in the same resort where we have lived for the last 11 years in the motor home. If you are not familiar with a Park Model, it is a small 400 square foot manufactured home. Ours however is a bit more than a simple park model. First off ours is set in the ground so it is ground level, then a 200 square foot addition was added making it 600 square foot overall and the whole thing is stuccoed and the roof is tiled. There is also a 117 square foot building on the property, which serves as a laundry room and a shop. This building is attached to the house by a covered patio with outdoor kitchen. Along with the real residential appliances they topped it off with an air conditioner that can turn the house into a meat locker in the 120-degree Arizona summers. You can see more photos by clicking on the link in the left column.

I have added a link to the photos of our house HERE.

So, although we are keeping the motor home, it looks like we are not Fulltimers anymore.

Best wishes to all our readers and I hope your travels are as enjoyable as ours.

I will leave the Blog up because I know others enjoy reading about our travels.

What happened here

You might ask. This morning I disassembled the couch. We are getting it re-upholstered. After 5 years of use it was getting a little tired. I contacted the factory to see if I could just get the skins and recover it myself but they discontinued that design and didn’t have any available. They did manage to find some left over material to send me. They sent me enough to do the whole motorhome probably twice, FREE. They also refer me to the company that makes their covers. I asked if they had the pattern and if I sent them the fabric if they could make me one. Nope, couldn’t help me there either. So we found someone here in Lake Havasu City that will pull the original cover and use it as a template. The guy said he will probably have it ready tomorrow.
