It's only been 15 1/2 months since we've gone "full time" and I don't regret that decision at all....especially on house cleaning days. I love our small space of approximately 350 to 375 square feet. It is wonderful! In the old sticks-n-bricks it took me half the day to clean the house well. Now I can get it squeaky clean it about an hour and a half. I put Bruce to work in a couple of areas, also. No room for slackers around here!
In fact, here is Bruce getting that kitchen counter scrubbed thoroughly. He better if he knows what is good for him....the commandant will be by, after taking photos, to make the inspection.
Ahhhh.....his work passed inspection and the kitchen is gleaming.
I always clean the bathroom. I am particular about getting it cleaned the way I prefer. I'm really satisfied with only having 1 bathroom now, too. I know some RV's have 2 bathrooms, and many RVer's prefer 2, but I'm glad we only have 1 to clean.
I also do the vacuuming. Bruce gets the job of washing the vinyl flooring. (lucky him)
Here is the "dining room" all dusted and cleaned. We always keep our table leaves extended when we are parked. That way I have full use of the whole table for my scrapbooking projects. It also helps when the "Grands" come over and there is room for all 4 of us.
The "living room" is all neat and tidy. That is until Annie the Schnauzer gets on the couch and pushes the pillows around. By Bruce's chair we have a small desk/table where we can keep the computer and the printer. IKEA special for $20.00.
Sometimes, if we're going to use the computer for most of the day, we'll hook it up at the dining table where we have more space. Bruce is hard at work doing his on-line banking.
RV living does involve some sacrifice in space, but we are just fine. Close quarters are fine and dandy with us. I know lots of RVer's that have what they consider the best of both worlds....an RV and a sticks-n-bricks home. That is good, if that is what they want. There are many ways to enjoy living in an RV and traveling....part time or full time. Take your pick!
We love the fulltime RV lifestyle, even when we pause to visit our family in Tumwater, Washington. We feel happy and blessed to be able to enjoy this special time living anywhere we would like to roam. Join us in our travels, and leave a comment if you please.
I am a wife, mother and grandmother. My husband, Bruce, and I live full time in our Winnebago motorhome. We began this lifestyle in 2008, after over 20 years of vacation traveling, and we love it. We have family in Tumwater, Washington so we return there every few months to be near them. The rest of the time we like to see new places. We have traveled by RV to 49 states and many areas in Canada. While doing this I try to keep my eye on our health habits. I'm a Lifetime member of Weight Watchers and being on the road traveling brings on lots of temptations. Keeping the weight off and still being able to enjoy the RV life....is all part of the adventure!
