Well, started the backsplash. Started is the key word there. Ran out of tile. I'm s dummy. Can't even figure that right. Had to order more. Not on sale anymore of course now that I bought the first batch. Now it's "popular". Then I did something good. I used butcher paper for s template to cut carpet for the stairs. I did it perfect! What the heck. Something didn't screw up. I'm grateful. Meanwhile Paul changed out all of those fixtures on the outside of the trailer with shiny new white ones… Continue

Progress and pain

Well we have made progress. We finally finished the painting of everything and I'm liking the color. It changes a lot according to the light. Paul did the water test and discovered only one small leak under the kitchen sink where they had removed an inline filter and used a compression fitting. He bought Pecora to replace. The new plastic sink arrived and it weighs all of maybe five pounds. But it sure is s pretty parchment color. We had bought a kitchen faucet stMenards at s tremendous… Continue

Finished the sofa!!!

Finally finished reupholstering the jackknife sofa for our new old rv today!! I feel like I've run a marathon for some reason. It was pretty stressful and I am so glad it's done. It actually turned out pretty well and I guess we saved hundreds of dollars but I don't think I would do one with the fabric and design again. Whew!!

And....

I tore the scary covering off the bunk mattresses. Pretty bad with stains and who knows what else but they seemed to be made out of a water impervious tyvek like material which protected the foam. All of the foam for the bunks and cushions is in good shape and reusable. I also recovered the dinette back bolsters and over door valance with the sofa fabric. We had to reconstruct the flimsy over door valance board because it was crumbling thin particle board. Amazing how over the years they have… Continue

Hello all! Happy to have found you. We are the Wilkie's from northwest Michigan. We just bought a youngish Shasta fifth wheel -1996. I know that's kind of a youngster here, but that's what we found. It's replacing our 19 ft. Funfinder. More room for the three dogs and maybe the two cats. We traveled the country back in 1990 in a fifth wheel for eleven months and never regretted selling the house to do it. Took along our two dogs and two cats back then. I loved the lack of an itinerary and stuff. It helped to have 75 cent diesel fuel. But reality struck and we came back and started the grind over again. We will go full time again. Need to liquidate a lot of stuff, as do most people. We know the full time life and are anxiously looking forward to it. You only have now, no promise of a tomorrow. Don't waste your moments.
