Our 5th Wheel Renovation

I’m not much of a blogger.  I tend to stick with Instagram and Facebook as my main outlet for social media.  This blog has been neglected and I apologize for that.  But I thought I would share my latest renovation. This rig is also for sale but more on that later.  Please see Facebook Marketplace posting here: For Sale

Those who know me by now, know I like to renovate and remodel! It’s a form of creative release to me and I enjoy it immensely even if it’s a lot of work!

My latest project is our 5th wheel that we purchased in April 2018. I definitely thought outside the box on this one.  It took me longer than usual to get this renovation done.  We lived in it the entire time along with our two cats so that really made it challenging!

A little background. This rig is a 2006 NuWa Hitchhiker II LS. It is 34′ long with three slides. Bathroom sits separately from the bedroom. I think it’s gross to have a shower and sink in the bedroom, personally. This rig seems more like a small apartment.

I will include original photos and after photos. Enjoy!

Happy 4th of July!

Today we celebrate our Independence Day!

Whatever your feelings for the current political situation in our country, we hope you take the time to give thanks to the men and women who fought to give you your freedom. The freedom to speak your mind and to vote as you choose.

Remember, Freedom isn’t Free! We are the land of free, because of the brave.

And soon I will be getting this blog back on track so stay tuned!

And On To New Adventures!

Well, we’ve done it. It took us about 10 days start to finish but we have sold the Avion (it’s going to Japan!!) and the GMC truck and have purchased a new set up!

First, the truck. We found this 2006 Ford F-350 dually about two hours from our current location. Owned by an Air Force mechanic who is moving and couldn’t take it with him. We got a fantastic deal on this well kept vehicle. Best news? It doesn’t require that DEF stuff for the diesel! Win-win!

Next up, purchasing a 5th wheel. We decided on a 5th wheel due to Mark’s height, ease of pulling and hooking up and it would allow more space for comfort. We knew we didn’t want something too big so when we came across this 32.5′ we had to check it out! Located just over an hour away from us in Las Cruces.

2006 NuWa Hitchhiker II LS. Immaculate condition! Previous owners were extremely good about maintenance.

Of course, I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t already have plans to make it our own! The golden oak just has to go, ya know? And while the color palette is fairly neutral it just screams “RV designer”. Blah!

This makeover will be more challenging than usual as we will be living in it while changing things up! 😱. Let’s see how that goes! lol

So here’s to new adventures! Our plans are to take a vacation at Ojo Caliente, then head up to Colorado and from there, Idaho, Washington, Oregon and back to Colorado! I will do my best to keep this blog updated.

See ya down the road!
