Moved Into My Fifth Wheel And Loving It.


I have been so busy and exhausted that I just haven’t taken the time to post anything new.  The New is that I have been moving into my Big Horn by Heartland.  (Still need  truck)  It was delivered last Friday on the 3rd of June.  (Interesting side note- I moved to California from Arizona on  the 3rd of June 12 years ago.)  I would pack up boxes, put them in the van and empty them at the RV, put everything away and start all over again, same boxes.  It is amazing how much you can put in an RV.  I can see how it is easy to be overweight.

It is so nice to finally be living in my new (to me) home.  I have been sleeping in the RV for 4 nights.  I decided to take the king size mattress out and put my own queen size in it’s place.  I also sold the rocker/recliners  to some friends that have TT, so that I have a place for my Lazy Boy recliner and and end table that I have painted. It will go to one of my granddaughters when I head that way next year.  There is also room for Angels crate for when I am at work.  She normally will sleep in the pillows on my bed or on the back of the sofa or in her tent. She has really been confused, bouncing back and forth from the old home to the new one.  She is dealing with it well,as long as she is with me she is fine.

Today the lady that bought my refrigerator, washer and dryer picked it up and finished paying for it.   I have cleaned out both bedrooms and all the closets, closed the doors.  I also cleaned out both bathrooms.  I put everything in the living room and kitchen, so that I can see what I have to contend with.  There is a lot that I can be sold. I might be able to put it into a friend yard sale.

I had to get a storage unit to keep the “care totes” that will go to my daughters, and the two armoires and business equipment that I still have.  My son will be here next weekend to help me move, it is all very heavy.

This is a short post, because I still have to attack what’s left and bring another load over to the RV.

I hope everyone is having a great weekend.

Thanks for visiting

  1. You sound busy. I'm so glad everything went smoothly for you. We may not have connected, but perhaps we will someday.

  2. Congratulations! You did it! Sounds like you're comfortable, and have lots of room - that's really nice. Before you know it, everything will be done and life will be back to normal, just in the RV now. I'm glad everything is going so well for you. :)

  3. Just love your fifth wheel. I'll bet you're excited to be moving in.

  4. Congratulations!! Glad you are moved in and enjoying!!

  5. Even though I just bought a smaller motorhome, I think fifth wheels are the most livable. Are you going to post interior pictures at some point? I'd love to see the inside.
