That’s how the saying goes, so I’ve heard. Well, the RV DEFINITELY feels like mine now after just a few years. I guess technically I didn’t break (all of) the things that have needed attention along the way, but I have been getting really intimate with how to fix stuff. On the list of things… Read More

So it seems I’ve been kind of lucky with the leak issues in my RV. Mostly, they’re not rain water coming inside (although there is one of those, but that’s a bigger post for another time). So far, a lot of the dripping has been related to something in the bathroom going bad. I’ve already… Read More

One of the things that our house requires as regular maintenance that stick-and-brick homeowners never have to worry about is tires. Much like the foundation below most peoples’ houses, our tires are the cornerstone holding everything else up, and they’re pretty much forgotten most of the time.

I’m so excited to finally share pictures of the inside of the Melodic View travel trailer! These have been a long time coming since it’s purchase in January of this year. We made several modifications to the Keystone Springdale Summerland Mini (what a mouthful!) and are super happy with the way everything turned out. I… Read More

If this sounds as skeptical to you as it first did to me, then you and I are in the same boat! During 2015, I finally started to wrap my head around what full-time RV life will be like: all the adventures and all the challenges. I still haven’t experienced it, but I’ve grown accustomed… Read More

Picked up the RV in Austin. Slide is fixed! Celebrate! Before we got out of the city limits, front tire blew out and 4 hours spent arranging for a new one.  And this is AFTER the toilet sprung a leak.… Read More

It seems that every single time I get the RV out of storage and ready to go somewhere for a weekend or a week, or whatever – there’s something.  Something new and small, but wrong or broken or not quite working right. It’s been the generator on some recent trips, and other times it’s been… Read More
