Finally done outfitting MH

Last week I posted that I'm now and RV'er. Well the last couple of days we've been cleaning it up and just finished stocking it with supplies and some $2,000 grand later lol. Should have kept most of the crap from our cabin cruiser boat we sold a couple of years ago but no, we threw it all away.

Unit is like brand new inside from cockpit to bedroom. This winter after I put it away after tailgating season is over I'm going to have a friend pull all the carpet (except bedroom) and put in a new laminate floor. Something darker brown with some light tans in it. I want a more modern look and much less carpet. Get's too matted down and hard to keep clean.

Then I'm going to pull the dinette furniture and have it done in leather to match the couch. I'm also going to build a new table out of oak with 4 cup holders in it. I just built one for my van that we used as our tailgate rig and it was easy so I'll do it again.

Other than that, I think I'm good to go with this unit. Here are the pics as some of you expressed interest in seeing it.

Nice rig! I love have zero carpet ! So much easier to keep looking fresh and new w laminate or vinyl. I added throw rugs to keep my feet warmer and give the dogs a nonslip surface. Those fit in my washer and I hang to dry. If I get bored I get new ones

It is easy to drop a few grand getting set up for sure

Having owned a boat as well but far more RVs, I haven't seen a great difference. Nothing but a money pit, always the wants and what ifs. I hate to think of my yearly expenses. I just continue on and enjoy the ride. Life is short and as the saying goes, enjoy the ride. Nice and very nice interior, your floors will look great and you'll be glad you made the change.

Wonderful work but you don't know the power of the outfitting force of an RV. You will never be done with it...

Bite the Bullet......Take out the second mortgage......and look forward to being a lifetime shopper. Always something needs fixing, always something needs to be bought and always something you'll want to upgrade.

I wouldn't change any of it!

$2,000 is a pretty good downpayment on what is to come. And, you will enjoy every penny of it, times 100.

That is a good looking rig. Congratulations.
