Crabman's Influence is Greatly Appreciated

The weather has been decent here so I hauled my TT home from storage and have been doing the typical stuff getting ready for next season. I'm at that point in life where the afternoon nap is more mandatory than optional. So when that time of day came around, I remembered Crabman's post in "What did you do to your Jayco today" where he informed us he took a nap. So I took a nap in mine. It's a great place for a nap, comfortable and quiet. It's not exactly camping, but kind of close. Also, DW thought I was out there working.

Yep, even on a cold day if your trailer is in the sun it will quickly warm up inside with no heat on at all. Mine is only about 75 feet from my house at all times when not in use, so I can get a little nap there whenever I want, or work on something if I so choose. Its nice to have your rig at home.....

I've taken a few naps in the trailer also.

We store our trailer at home also. I spend time in it when I have to review a problem we're having at work, or study for job related Certifications. It's quiet in the trailer and I can concentrate on things better.

Napping is good for the soul, so they say. As I get older, that advice becomes more and more important and useful.

Mine is close to the house also. But, I'm not taking a pleasant nap at freezing or below without turning on the heat and that doesn't work too well with the cover on it protecting from the snow.

Cloudy and cold in Phoenix? What, has the temperature plummeted to 98 degrees? It's near 55 in Michigan, which is way too warm for my liking. Happy Camping!!

I wish my TT was at home. I had a great nap once while getting some work done and it was still connected to my truck. I didn't see the point of dis-connecting, leaving and then re-connecting for a little less than 2 hours of work.

So I am not the only one who sometimes sits in the camper for no apparent reason. Wow, I might even be close to normal. Thanks guys. I often look at the camper as being an addition to the house.
