How to Create an Outdoor Kitchen that is Just Right

Tuesday, November 19, 2019

We have perfected our outdoor kitchen over time.  Learn from our winning moves and missteps.

Some RV's come with an outdoor kitchen as part of the design.  But, there are quite a few that don't.  If you want an outdoor kitchen but the RV you own or one you are interested in purchasing doesn't have one, hold on.  You can create an outdoor kitchen set up that will be functional and just as good a pre-configured one.

You Have a New RV - So, Why Do You Need to Buy So Much Stuff?

Friday, November 15, 2019

When you buy a new RV, there are several things that you will need to budget for after the sale.  What are they and how much do they costs?

When you buy a new RV, you may think that the cost you negotiate is the final cost.  But, don't be fooled.  That is only part of the cost.  And while it is the biggest part of the cost, you need to allocate in your shopping budget for all of the additional items and gear you will need after the sale.  So, if you bought a new RV, do you need to buy so much stuff?

What Changed When We Moved from a Pop Up Camper to a Travel Trailer

Monday, November 11, 2019

While we were sad to see Peggy Sue, the pop-up camper go, we love our new travel trailer.  It was the right decision for us!  You can see Peggy Sue in the background as we were camping with our friends that bought her that weekend!

When we moved from a pop-up camper to a travel trailer, we wanted an easier setup and pack up process.  Sure, pop up campers are lightweight and inexpensive.  There is also a lot of work in setting one up.  No matter how you camp, however, there is work involved.  Three things never change - prep, set up and takedown.  So, why change if you are still doing all of the same things?  Well, its a lot of things really that can and do change when you transition from a pop-up camper to a travel trailer.  For us, it was the next logical step.

Tips for those Last Minute Camping Trips

Friday, November 8, 2019

Last-minute camping trips can be fun if you think through the details and set yourself up for success.

The freedom of owning an RV is being able to just hitch up go.  Every trip does not have to be a bucket list extravaganza.  Sometimes, it is fun and worthwhile to plan a spontaneous adventure.  It may seem like it is not worth the work, but you can do this with much less effort than you think.  What are my tips for a last-minute campout?

Favorite Fall Camping Recipes - 7 Comfort Meals We Love

Monday, November 4, 2019

Set your table with delicious comfort food this fall at the campground.
Some people are putting their RV's to sleep with bottles of 'pink drink'.  In the deep south, we are still camping.  Sure, temperatures are diving into the '30's at night, but the days are still nice and fairly warm.  In many ways, this is the perfect camping weather for us where sweltering days last for months.  The break in the heat is the perfect excuse for cozy nights by a fire and comfort food.

Installing an RV Slide Awning

Friday, November 1, 2019

Our Alpine Slide Awning from Carefree of Colorado is perfect for our new RV.
My husband and I have completed both big and small RV projects.  We started out with our pop up camper that we remodeled.  Over that process, we decided to pay to have some things done professionally.  For some projects, it is worth the money.  However, there are some projects that just make sense to take the DIY approach.  We made the decision this fall to install our RV slide awning.  So, how hard was it and was it worth the time and effort?
