Friday, December 27, 2019 Tuesday before Christmas, just before heading out to spend the holiday with my son and my ex, I discovered a leak in my roof. Oh, no! Leaky roofs can destroy RVs in no time. Unfortunately, I didn’t have time to deal with it. But, fortunately, the…View More A Leaky Roof
Thursday, December 12, 2019 I’m not much of a table-using kind of person. My trailer came with a little four-person dinette, placed beneath a beautiful picture window.
