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.

Susan’s parents have moved in

No, Not with us, they bought a lot here in the resort. Susan has been talking to them for a couple of years now about selling their house and buying a lot here in Lake Havasu City and getting out of California. This would be a better place for them since there is so much for them to do here in the resort and there are people their age to socialize with. They finally realized she was right and made an offer on a lot here and the offer was accepted. A friend of ours was selling their top of the line Elite Suite fifth wheel for a very good price so Susan’s dad bought it and we put it on their lot for them. Escrow closed Friday and they have been here getting all setup for a new life. Already they are dreading going back to California to get all their affairs in order and the house sold.

Putting the fifth wheel on their lot was a challenge. The lot is designed for a motorhome to drive straight in and maneuver around to parallel the back wall. Since there would be no way to get a fifth wheel in that spot with a truck we had to do some planning. We were able to get a fifth wheel tug, which is similar to a small forklift with a fifth wheel hitch in place of the forks. It was a done deal with the tug.
