Having an Island Glamper Christmas

I finally got around to gathering up all the driftwood I’ve been collecting for well-over two years now, and built a Christmas tree for our caravan Glamping home. Up until yesterday, my remnants of Mother Ocean had been mere decoration in my garden beds…

D I Y Pull-out Sofa Sleeper in Glamper RV

Pull Out Sofa Sleeper in Our Glamper Caravan Home — Part I   We’re hoping the third time is a charm, because that’s how many times Hubby has rebuilt this sofa sleeper/daybed in the caravan home we so lovingly refer to as Mermaid Mansion.  Unseen in these photos, there is a window seat on the opposite wall,…

Glamper Bathroom Remodeling — New Faucets & Bamboo Sink Countertop Redo

Even though my Hubby Nico installed these new faucets in our Caravan Glamper bathroom months ago, I still wanted to share.  We’ve so enjoyed these pretty, and very cost efficient, RV faucets.  They’ve been one of the best, and cheapest, upgrades we’ve made to our Mermaid Mansion Glamping Home. We bought these online, and paid…

Glamper Remodeling — Over Head Cabinet Construction

It’s been a while, and I’ve fallen waaay behind on the keeping of my blog.  I’m happy to be back at it, after months of remodeling and rebuilding the interior of our Retro Vintage Aljo we lovingly call Mermaid Mansion.  :  ) Nico, my husband, has been working tirelessly on constructing a ‘stow-away’ cabinet above…

Almost anything can be Re-used, Recycled, or Repurposed nowadays. My most recent ‘brainstorm’ might be something you’ve already thought of, but if not…her ya go! Because we live full-time…

New Bead Board Ceiling in Retro Glamper RV Bathroom

Well, it almost took 2 years of looking at the ugly results of a formerly leaky roof, for us to install a new, perfectly white, bead-board ceiling in our bathroom. Not only did we have a hole above our shower area, but someone had thought they’d be smart, and spray that foam insulation in there;…

Dining Room – Before & After

It’s been less than a year-and-a-half since we found our retro-vintage travel trailer; gutted out and full of musty…dirty carpet.  Ever since the day we finally got her home (see ‘A Place to Call Home’ in a previous blog post), we’ve been hard-at-it to make her livable…while actually living in her.  Anyone who’s ever remodeled an old RV…
