Tips & Tricks

TIP # 3: DITCH THE DINETTE

I am living in a 19′ Airstream, and while I could get comfortable sitting in the dinette area to knit or read, I found getting in and out was annoying. So I decided to try out using that area as a lounge and added soft bins to store stuff. It is so much easier and more comfortable now.

TIP #2: TRUCK GO BAG

If you are a pulling a trailer, make sure to pack a bag of clothes of all warmths/coolness to leave in the tow vehicle. I was caught in the Hoh Rainforest in clothes typical of what to expect, but it turned out to be much warmer than usual. I really wanted to change into shorts and a sleeveless top for hiking. Also up on Hurricane Ridge it was much cooler than expected, so was glad I had the go bag to pull out a hat and scarf.

TIP #1: RV CHECK LIST

I am new to the RV life. I laminated a checklist of Arrival Tasks on one side and Departure tasks on the other. I kept putting it down and losing it. Finally I had the bright idea to punch a hole in the bottom of it and attached it to a lanyard to hang around my neck.
