Welcome To Paradise

Here's my new old camper.  I love it. I was sitting out at a camp fire watching the night sky with some fellow Boondockers in southern California I had been traveling with on my one year anniversary of living full time is my little tiny camper. It struck me that I have never been so at peace since stepping out of my comfort zone and I wanted to continue this adventure. I thought it would be nice to have a slightly bigger home. I started a search and found this 18 foot Sun Line Sun Ray camper. She's not the best made little gal out here but she's paid for.

Every place I elect to stay becomes my favorite place until I move somewhere else I fancy. I may call her Paradise because that's where we usually wind up. There are so many paradises if you only take time to see them.


Below is my little art studio. Isn't this great? I love having this, the other camper, as wonderful as it is, didn't allow me room to keep a studio set up.



Here are a few of my first creations in Paradise.


And this.

Did you sell the 12 foot trailer?

Not yet, I have to get a title somehow. In my home state, Ohio, I just walk into the bmv with a weigh slip and pay my money and walk out with a registration and plates. I guess lots of states won't accept that so it cuts down on prospective buyers.

The tandem trailer looks like it's going to be a bit harder to pull, do you still have the SUV? You might want to leave the big trailer out west and move the 12 footer back to Ohio. Then you will have two homes LOL.

Glad to see you are happy. I am well, enjoying life in NE PA, my health is great almost 100% back to pre-back injury status. My plans are to travel to Florida from January thru mid-March. After about two months in the alum tent I am done with camping. My set up is not as luxurious as yours.

The tandem tows like a dream, so far I've been up to 6700 feet. It weighs in at 2376 dry. I had the axels flipped for better clearance. I do want to get weight distrubution bars though. The suv is rated at 5200 pounds so I doubt I'm over 3000 pounds with crap loaded. If I had to go bigger, I would. Bigger is better.

I live having the smaller trailer to travelcwith. So many wonderful to stop and enjoy. And for you to gave room for your art is fantastic.

All the luxury 2 grand can buy, plus 426. To flip the axels. I still need an inverter. It came with good batteries, water pump and a 2 way fridge. I don't have to buy ice so I can sometimes have my friends Lady Bligh or the Captain over.

This one is set up well, louvered windows all around for great airflow so the dogs are safe if I have to leave and a fan for comfort too. It is an 18 footer, about 16 in the box. It feels like a mansion to me. I love the full size bed.

A little late but congratulations on your anniversary and your new home! A little more room or a different floor plan sometimes makes a big difference. Hope to see you at the 2017 RTR!
