Oh trust me, we are loving outfitting our new home wheels. We just can't wait to use it this summer. I'm already looking at the calendar for at least one weekend trip a month.

I can remember running to Walmart and Lowes to get little things for the camper all the time. Lately, we just enjoy the trip and can think of nothing else needed to make life more comfortable.

Enjoy! You won't pass this way again.
I hear you there, RedHorse1! Spent a small fortune outfitting my rig. In fact, after a year, I'm still spending a small fortune on it. But I have figured out a way to save a small fortune on RV supplies: Step 1 Start with a large fortune. Step 2 Buy an RV. Problem solved!

The life-style is worth it, though!

TRAILER SHOWERS!!!!

Oh, we,have,those all the time in the south.

Just kidding, but both a LOL and what a great idea. I think you just coined a new term.

My wife always complains about the money pit I bought but she is the one spending the money on it. And all I got is an 18 footer that sleeps three if two of you really like each other. But what she really complains about is all the work I've had to do to the dirt cheap suburban I bought to tow it with. Now there I've found the money pit.

Yeah, I love it.
It's not about the $$ ( don't spend more than you have), it's about appreciating the beauty of the world God has created for us.
Enjoy!

Yes, we're very excited to get our RV as well. Our dining room table is stacked high with items we've already had or recently acquired. Re-sale stores and garage sales have been a great help. I have no idea how much we have spent on miscellaneous stuff. Camping World loves us too for all the stuff we've bought! lol In fact we're headed there today for a few more sale items. Now if the trailer would arrive, we'd be all set.

Our goal is to have everything in the TT that we need except for clothes, food, water, computers & hotspot. I've even pulled together a shaving kit that remains in the TT.
