We had a battery charging issue pop up while in storage this year - no power there. So once I got that squared away a bit and the weather has gotten better, we go up on a Saturday or Sunday morning to run the generator etc. The night before we go Annie gathers up some cantaloupe or other fruit, bagels and such and puts the thermos out. We have a nice breakfast and inspect, measure and rearrange things etc. This weekend we started recording amps. Generator alone registers 1 amp, battery charger and EMS on adds 6, toaster with bagels down adds 7 and so on. Just do little things and beats sitting at home. When we travel we don't like doing that stuff with our "get away time" so we've made a date breakfast or brunch out of it and are both learning a lot - remembering lessons forgotten - and having a good time thinking about future trips while doing it.

I'm doing a pretty good job of turning money into smoke and noise there too!

Don't think we've used it once for "camping", it's transportation/shelter/respite while at track events. I don't think I can sit still much past one coldbeer.

Need to have the house tented sometime this year so probably will street camp for that.

We had a fire Feb 2011 and spent 7.5 ms living in our MH.

I use it to go to dog shows and horse showd and my truck camper for horse rides .

We use it when visiting family as our own rolling guest quarters plus safe for my dogs.

We use it as a pprivate suite for company

Also for camping adventures w the DH.

We bought our 40 Fleetwood so my wife can visit friends and family. We also use it for a dog house as we can not leave of little girls home. We have 5 small dogs and it works well for us. We are awaiting a liver transplant in the future for her it is a home away from home.

It does a great job keeping the concrete floor down in the barn where the coach sleeps at night.
