One of the things about working on your rig is the ability to have the rig close by. After taking part of my fence down, working on my secondary access road and calcutating turning points, I was able to get it into the drive.
I need to order 20-25 yards of decomposed granite to help level out the area and then I'll be set for the rv.
I'll be able to work on it anytime now.
I already have power, water and waste there for my teardrop.
I'm really stoked.

It is nice to have the camper sitting at home!

I prefer to do all my maintenance when I feel like it. At home, I have my tools, and if I decide to take a break or feel extra motivated, I can just jump on it, or leave it for later.

Congratulations

I'm ordering 56 yards (86 tons) of 1 1/2" ballast in order to level the spot a bit. The entire place is on top of a hill and not level anywhere.

I mod on, wrench on, drool on mine just about everyday and am so thankful to live out in the country and with enough room to have Bluey in the driveway and a shop filled with tools to allow me to chase this hobby.

Congrats. You brought it home and can give it the attention you want to give it.

I probably made 15 extra trips installing my solar system because I'd forget some minor thing. Now, I've done six things to it since it's been here this morning.

Congrats on getting the work done to keep it at home. Senecas are great looking rigs!

I won't have it any other way. I have mine at home on a blacktop pad adjacent to my home shop. I'm looking for a way to expand the shop to create an RV bay so she can reside inside but that is a bit into the future...

I'm kind of in sticker shock right now. They want over $86.00 a ton for gravel to level out my spot here in California. It's $19.00 a ton delivered where I live in Washington. I need 56 tons.
I'm stuck here for fire season (pg&e here) but shoot.

I buy a lot of gravel, and $19 bucks a ton delivered I haven't seen in years. It costs me $19 dollars to start a dump truck and drive 5 miles. Empty.

I wrapped up a big project here in early spring. I paid almost $44 per ton delivered for 3/4 blue stone. The dump trucks brought an average of about 20.5 tons per load. Im less than 20 miles from the plant.

I was thinking about this. My place in Washington is less than two miles from the quarry and I ended up with over 340 tons of material. Here, they have to go get the rock from someplace further away and a smaller truck to get it in here.
I'm seeing another company today, so, we'll see.

Parking

I can't imagine not having the motorhome close by. I have a circle drive and parking on each side of my 30x48 shop with sewer dump, water and power. Makes it handy for repairs, (just had to pull the generator out to replace a bearing and brushes). Also can plug up a day early and get fridge cold before loading everything.
