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.

Be persistent

Sometimes being persistent pays off, sometimes it’s just a waist of time. This time it paid off. As I said before, our patio furniture is in need of some new clothes. I scoured the internet and found the best price for the material already cut and sewed. All I have to do is install it. Well this is all well and good but there is a problem…Of course! The measurements they want me to do won’t work with the style of chairs I have. So I headed down to a place in town that can order the pieces for me to see if they know how to measure it correctly. No joy with them either but they referred me to another place in town that will custom make them. Turns out I can get them done with better material including pickup and delivery for the price the other guy wanted for material alone. Not only that but they can do my motorhome upholstery and windshield screen also, yes those need to be done too.

Won’t be long and I won’t have anything left to do, YEAH RIGHT!

    Hi Dan, let us know how the upholstery turns out. We need ours done also after 10 years. We do come to the river in the winter so it could work out.
    Thanks Sandi
