 View to the front of the RV.  

We upgrade bed with a Restwell mattress and new bed linens.

With the shower in the bedroom it creates room to change your clothes. 

Couch and table are in our one slide out. 

Added coat hooks to keep some order in the camper

Camping is about sharing time with each others 
rather than picking up the phone 
and checking facebook.

It's about spending time outside.
And all the destinations along the way.

Bugs and all too.
