Greetings! My wife and I have individuals renting our house weekly throughout the summer and decided to move to my families farm down by the river in our new (used) travel trailer. I originally bought a 2002 29' Artic Fox (hitch hook-up) which had a slightly funky odor, so I was planning to change the floors. In ripping out carpets I found some issues with sub-floor and don't really know how to deal with the slides and the hard flooring. This all being said, I wanted to move yesterday so ended up buying a 2007 Jayco Jay Flight 29' (5th wheel) with a 1992 F-250 truck a couple days ago. This has no funky odor and has hardly been used. The tabs expired three years ago and the battery had zero water in it. Working on little things like that right now and then going to clean the carpets really well and start moving in. There are no utility hook-up's (electric, water or sewer), where I will be. I am eager to learn how other's go about long-term dry camping. I am pretty excited to play with the different systems. As of now, I was planning to fill up food safe 55 gallon drums with water up at the farm house and bring those down and just pump it into the trailer. For sewer, I might just buy or rent a port-o-potty and dump my sewer into that and have a company come drain that out whenever it gets full. For electric, I was going to start looking into solar panel systems. Does anyone have any thoughts on those or suggested readings about what other people have done? I am located in WA State which gets nice sun in the summer, but isn't known for sunshine!
Here's the new truck and trailer. Looking forward to learning more on this forum.
