2 years ago, I did a big remodeling project to the interior of my 2002 Holiday Rambler Vacationer. I put down all new flooring and replaced all the aging furniture. I used Shop4Seats to get 2 new captain’s chairs, a new couch, and a new dinette booth. Specifically:2 De Leon II Captain’s ChairsLivingston RV DinetteBelmont RV

I’m not dead. COVID didn’t get me. I still own an RV. 😉 In fact, I’m doing just fine. But yes, it has now been over a year since I posted anything to this blog. And here I am breaking my silence. And letting you know what I’m thinking here with regard to HappilyRV.What Happened?Life happened. See, I own and

When we bought our HR Vacationer motorhome, it came with a washer/dryer combo machine. The old model was a Splendide 2000 WD802. The machine worked, but I could tell that the previous owner of our motorhome bought the machine secondhand. It was a bit dinged up, had some rust marks on it. When I had

This was our second year going to the RV Entrepreneur Summit put on by Heath and Alyssa.  We had a blast the first time we drove to Texas in March of 2018, so we decided to do it again.  This time the drive was shorter – Lake Guntersville, Alabama. We had a blast again, but

I have to admit… this is a wee bit embarrassing. The last post to this blog was back in August of 2018. About 8 months ago. In the middle of a pretty epic summer trip in the RV. I posted from Monument Valley. Then… nothing. It isn’t as if nothing happened after that. 🙂 Monument

We couldn’t come out west and not stop into Monument Valley. So, after Mesa Verde, that was our next stop. I had only scheduled 2 nights (one full day) to stay here, however. While the scenery is epic, truth is there isn’t a lot to do. There are some commercial tours if you like that

After a short hop from Durango, we planted the RV into the Mesa Verde RV Resort right outside the main entrance to Mesa Verde National Park. The RV park itself was pretty nice. It had a nice pool, 2 hot tubs. Even though I only used them once (since we had full hookups), but bathroom

Last I checked in here on the blog, we were in Little Rock, Arkansas and weathering some insanely hot temperatures. From there, we continued west through Oklahoma, the Texas panhandle, New Mexico… to where we sit now in Durango, Colorado. And yes, it is MUCH nicer here. Currently 86 degrees, low humidity. The wife is

It is a rare motorhome owner, most likely, that seeks to replace their furniture. After all, it isn’t a cheap thing to do and the financial ROI simply isn’t there. When it comes to used motorhomes and trailers, almost all of them have the exact same furniture they were built with. But, the ones built

In the final video in this series on reflooring the RV, we bring the project to a close. After installing the carpeting, I still had some things to do to wrap things up. Namely… Install quarter round trim around the edges of the vinyl plank flooring. Install transition pieces at the end of the carpet
