Those colors are for funeral homes. I'm part of the older crowd and I'm not ready for "muted" colors yet.

I think muted colors can be nice if you add touches of fun color in the pillows, area rugs, wall hangings and such. We were lucky that ours had a really tropical feel to it but that means solid colored pillows and trying to find matching (or at least not clashing, lol) prints for curtains and whatnot.

I just finished installing Steer safe on my '93 22' Winnie Warrior. Now the coach no longer goes in every direction but straight. Now the wheel returns to straight ahead and remains there hands off. It now drives like a car instead of a wobbly goblin. CW charged me $350. They wanted $100 to install it but I did it myself.

I bought a set of Mini Fuses the standard fuses for my pick-up and my wife's van do not fit. Probably have a gazillion of the standard flat blade and round glass fuses .
I also bought a couple of cans of Seafoam Fuel additive, so when we get back from our trip I can put it in the fuel tank when we store it. Maybe it will help save me another $307.50 (because I was too lazy to exercise the generator)

A Sodastream machine. Now we don't have to lug cases of soda around and keep restocking the one little shelf in the refrigerator.

We got a campsite... and a golf cart, and a shed for the cart. But seriously, it's only slightly more expensive than storage, 24 hour access, full hookups, indoor and outdoor pools, great security and the MH gets 3 times as much use now.

Finally got around to replacing the door magnets so the steps now always work as they are supposed to. Also ordered two new moon axel covers for the front wheels. Lost one somewhere in Ohio!!

I agree. The colorful curtains I put in the BRS yesterday made a big difference. Now I need to make some colorful matching covers for the sofa pillows. A few colorful throw carpets and a new sofa quilt should finish it off.
