Our New Rig

Well, new to us that is. πŸ™‚ We have downsized to a 1986 Lance 900 series truck camper!

The camper is in great shape and all systems work! The only thing it doesn’t have is AC but it is wired to have an AC unit in it. At some point we will add one in.

Looking good on the GMC!


Inside is a bit dated of course. What can you expect from the 80’s? So, our mission is to totally update it and make it a bit more modern! And as we are leaving for South Carolina on July 25th we better get cracking!

What will we do for AC in the south? Well, we are just going to throw a window unit in it as a temp solution. Yeah, it will be a bit redneck-ish but better that than melting in the heat!

LOVE the counter space in the kitchen!
The fridge works great!
Large booth seating with a nice window for views
Queen size bed with lots of storage space
Full bathroom but will be using our composting toilet instead

In the next couple of weeks we will be adding solar, repainting everything and generally just giving it a really good cleaning. There are some minor repairs to make but nothing that is too difficult.

We will get as much done as we can before leaving for SC and our daughters college graduation and will finish up all the renovations when we return in August!

Our plan is to leave our little off grid cabin before the snow flies (generally October) and then hit the road for the winter!

Stay tuned for our maiden voyage. Hopefully it all goes as planned but you never know with us. 😜

  1. looking forward to reading about you upgrades to your new-to-you slide in. I might get some ideas from you. Congratulations to your daughter. Safe travels.

  2. “Redneck ish” is offensive to not only our Native American brethren but also those of us with a constantly sun burnt neck. In the future please consider opportunistic engineering

  3. Shelly, You found your camper! Looks in great condition, a little paint and cleaning will make a huge difference. Air conditioning, any way you can get it, is a must during S.C. summer. Looking forward to hearing about your first adventure. : ) and all about traveling in a camper.
    Congratulations to your daughter on her graduation.
