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.

Great drive

We headed for Havasu this morning. The weather couldn’t be better, except it could have been a bit cooler. We had clear skies and no wind. We started out in the high 70s and by the time we got into Havasu it was 100. I think it finally pushed into the 105 mark today but there is a lot of humidity in the air. We can see thunder clouds all around us but for some reason they all seem to go around us. Now we have a lot of cleaning up to do. The park is still empty. Very few stayed through the summer and a few have come back but it really looks like a ghost town around here.

We put a total of 3,784 miles on the motorhome this summer and pumped 493 gallons of gas in it. That’s $1,611.39 in fuel costs. The motorhome did everything I asked it to and ran flawless for the whole trip. Now it’s time to give it a good bath and let it rest for a little while.


  1. oh...I'm jealous...I need some vacation...
