It Feels Like Home Now

I've been living full time in my new Jayco for 2-1/2 months now, and last night when I layed down in bed, I realized that this little 8' X 26' box has become my home. It feels like home, no matter where it's parked.

Never even considered that aspect of RVing when I headed out last November.

Anyone else remember when their Jayco started feeling like home, instead of an RV?

Howdy Bill,
I had a somewhat similar experience. I was on an extended vacation in my fiver. One day the thought popped into my mind that I could very comfortably live in it full time. One day, I hope to do just that.

We live in our RV for about 9 months a year. Our new 330 felt like home the second day.

I have been full timing in mine since August 2010 and it is definitely home now.

We're between TTs until May and even though our home is exactly what and where I wanted it, I feel slightly homeless. Our first RV was a TH with the front deck, so the living portion was only 18'. Tight as it was, it felt like home after I halfway knew what I was doing. I can't imagine what the 320RLDS is going to be like.

I still have a few things to do to make it home-ier. Need to add some shelves or drawers next to the kitchen counter for storage, and add some type of shelving in the bunk bed area. I don't need the bunk beds, but organized storage there would be great.

Bought a new 22 inch tv tonight, but didn't get a coaxial cable to hook it up to the park cable outlet. Duh!

Maybe I'll be able to watch the super bowl on sunday.
