The next phase in our reflooring project was to install the new carpet. Unfortunately, I had a deadline pending (a campground reservation) and I really had to finish this project. So, I just buckled down and did it and didn’t record any video. I did, however, take some photos! So, I’m going to now walk
Once I had all the vinyl planks installed, it was time to install carpeting in the front cockpit and the rear. However, before I do that, I wanted to take the opportunity to put some additional sound dampening up front. This is just a nice little upgrade to do while there’s no floor in there.
Reader’s Note: It has been over a month since my last update on my reflooring project. I had a few people email me asking what happened. 🙂 I had to rush a bit to finish the job for a camping reservation, so I ended up busting it out without worrying too much about recording videos.
My motorhome rides on a Workhorse W22 chassis. I honestly don’t know if what I’m about to say applies to other chassises. It may. You’ll need to do your own research. I first noticed the issue while driving on a bumpy road up in Canada between Montreal and Quebec City. I went to engage the
Our rig came with a Splendide 2000 WD802M washer/dryer combo. Which is great since my wife was always tired of carting loads of laundry around the campground and finding rolls of quarters for the machines. 🙂 It’s a decent machine. Splendide has a newer model, but this is the one we have. I think even
In the last installment, I covered my process for removing and repairing the sections of rotted subfloor. So, the next day, I went ahead and finished the job. My goal was to complete all subfloor prep and have the rig ready to accept the new flooring. So, the first thing I did was to finish
At this point in my reflooring project, it was time to repair some rot spots on the subfloor. The problem wasn’t too bad. It was mainly in a few spots along the edge near the walls. Namely… Passenger side, front. There was a leak issue with this rig with the previous owner. I think the
In the last video, I began the process of removing that pesky laminate wood flooring in order to make way for the new vinyl planks. On this day, I finished the job. I had to finish removing the laminate in the bathroom area. And yes, it was a lot of work just like the day
Up to this point in the project, the jury was still out on whether I was going to pull the laminate flooring or not. The problem was that I didn’t know how it was attached. If there was a lot of adhesive under there, then pulling it would be a total nightmare and I’d rather
On my second day working on reflooring our motorhome, I drove the rig home so that I could plug into the electric. Then, I went to town on pulling the carpet up from the rest of the rig. At this point, all the carpet is up except for the doghouse cover, a little section right
So, the job on hand right now is reflooring the motorhome. And that starts with pulling up the old carpet. As I mentioned in my last post, our motorhome is a 2002. And after 16 years, you can imagine what the carpet looked like. 🙂 Yeah, it wasn’t good. So, starting in the back bedroom,
As I write this post, the remodeling has already begun. The rig is torn apart. 🙂 But, I decided to document what I was doing on video as I went. This video shows what the rig looked like before I did anything. Our motorhome is a 2002 Holiday Rambler Vacationer. It is a great rig
While we don’t full-time at this point, we do spend far more time in our RV than most people our age. We’re free to do that because of the nature of my work. I have been an online entrepreneur for 19 years now. So, when we’re in these campgrounds in the middle of a work
Motorhomes are reliable. Reliable in that something will break almost every time you take it out on an extended trip. I’ve learned to just roll with it. It used to stress me out, but… why bother? Plus, when you think about it, obviously if something is going to break, it’ll be when you’re out having
This site is called RV Family Travel. So, what’s it like traveling with the kids? As I write this post, we’re in the middle of a motorhome trip which has us out for a bit over 6 weeks. So, for 6 weeks, the 4 of us are living in confined quarters in a 36-foot motorhome.
After we left Blairsville and the Crossing Creeks RV Report, we traveled north toward Cherokee, NC. There are quite a few campgrounds up in this area, but we went ahead and booked the Flaming Arrow Campground. Honestly, we didn’t book it for any particular reason. We had called many others. Some didn’t have room. The
5 years ago, we had rented a cabin in Blue Ridge, GA. During our stay there, we discovered the little town of Blairsville in northern Georgia. We loved the weather at the time – something my wife always pays a LOT of attention to. 😉 And so, in 2017, we decided to visit Blairsville again.
I want to make it clear upfront that we are not full-timers. At this point, we don’t plan to. But… Every time we go out on an extended RV trip, we think about it. Almost every time, we end up having that conversation about the potential. There’s really nothing stopping us from doing it. My
It’s funny. When we booked a site at Crossing Creeks RV Resort (in Blairsville), we ran up against a little asterisk in the booking process… If your rig is older than 10 years, you had to send them a photo of it for approval. Basically, they wanted to make sure it wasn’t ugly. 😉 Our
We’re Floridians. We’re no strangers to afternoon storms in the summer. But, this one came on strong, instantly, and HARD. And it destroyed my awning. Well, not completely destroyed it. The hardware is OK. But the fabric was ripped in half. Here’s how it went down… Beautiful Sunny Day At The Pool. Until…. That’s the
Having been active RV owners for the last three years, we have taken a share of trips in our 2 RVs that we owned throughout this time. Every trip is extraordinary and memorable in its own way, but following are the 10 things that stay constant for every one of these trips and we’re happy
