After they left, we went over the rv one last time and got it all cleaned up and cleaned out. She is officially up for sale!
We have done so many updates over the past few years. We have a hard-wired progressive electric management system, auto-seeking satellite, vented washer/dryer, whole house water filter system, RV Lock and an auto leveling system. Harry added longer struts to all the cabinets, reinforced the kitchen shelves, added backsplashes in the kitchen and bathroom, just to list a few of his mods. We are also going to included our sun shades for the awning, hoses, cribbing for the jacks, chocks and X-chocks and other rv accessories that we have purchased over the years. Also, Harry has always been very conscientious about maintenance of all the systems. Someone is going to get one nice rig and setup. :)
We have it listed on RV Trader so I will put the link to our ad here.

A couple weeks ago we brought the rig over to the resort for its last official outing. My mother and stepfather have come down to Florida for a few weeks and will be staying in the fifth wheel. We took advantage of having it close by to get it mostly cleaned out and ready for viewing. We hope to sell it this spring once our guests head back north.
I started taking pictures of the various areas for posting in our listing. (I had to use Blogger instead of Live Writer so the placement of the pictures is not coming out exactly as I wanted.)
Tons of storage space! These are only a few pictures of the many storage places in this rv.

Well. Happy New Year everyone!! Once again it’s been another two months plus since I last wrote and it is definitely time for an update.
The big news will be coming up below, but first a general catch-up.
Things are going really well. We are both settled in to work at Home Depot and Harry is enjoying his part-time work in the hardware department. It hasn’t been all work and no play though. We have had several card sessions with our friends. We play a game called Pegs and Jokers, and play guys against girls. So far the girls are 2 games ahead!
We have also been going to our usual card night at the club house as much as we can. Sometimes we have to work, but we’ve still managed to make it quite a few times. We have also started going to Card Bingo. So far it’s been typical bingo, with lots of fun and close calls, but no wins. haha
We have also been to Disney a few times. So far our favorite continues to be Epcot. We love going when they are having the different festivals and we can sample all the international food offerings. Harry always enjoys his dark beer in “Germany”.
One day when Harry was working, I went with a couple of my friends to Disney Springs and we had a girls’ day out.
We had a lot of fun, enjoyed the festive decorations…
…and a wonderful lunch. It was a great day with a lot of laughs and conversation.
Our days have been full. Between get togethers with friends, work, and just normal life, the time has flown, and here we are, heading into another new year. And is this year ever going to be a new one!
On to our big news. We are hanging up the RV keys. We don’t expect that it will be forever, as we do hope to buy a smaller rig someday and do some more traveling. But for the foreseeable future. I have accepted a fulltime position at Home Depot. I’ll be doing the same work I’ve been doing, which I really enjoy. It’s the typical fulltime job with paid vacation, so I won’t be able to take months off as we have been doing. It’s a bittersweet decision for us, because we have enjoyed our RV travels. And we are very much going to miss our summers up north – seeing family and doing all that awesome hiking. BUT. Financially it is the best and most realistic decision for us. So we are looking on the bright side and forward to the opportunities that this decision is going to bring. And looking forward to sharing the Florida experience with our little guys this summer. “Papa” will be flying up to Ohio to bring them down here for their visit this year.
So if you hear of anyone who is getting ready to start out on their rv life, we will be putting our whole setup on sale in a couple months. We are hoping to sell the whole package – fifth wheel, truck and we will be including the majority of our rv “stuff” – awning screens, chocks etc. Anyone who has been following our blog knows what good care Harry has taken of our fifth wheel, and all of the modifications we’ve done to improve it. If anyone out there is interested in more information, drop me an email. I am working on the official ad that we will be putting up, so when it officially goes up for sale, I’ll post it here on the blog.
