OVER CAB-
There are 2 storage compartments built into this area. The far right and far left both lift to reveal shallow compartments.
There is a long tan window covering inside the storage compartment on the left side (if you're requesting the over cab bed be made, it'll be on top of the bed). There are Velcro spots on it, so you can Velcro the cover to the black dots over the driver's window, windshield, and passenger window for privacy at night. You especially want to do this if you have people sleeping in the living room area.
The bedding for the dinette bed (if requested/needed) will be folded and placed in the over cab area as well.
If no one is sleeping in this area, it makes a great spot to store suitcases or for the kids to hang out. I've found that once a child is taller than 5'2", the bunk beds are a little small and they prefer the over cab bed. The ladder for the over cab area is under the living room/over cab TV. You may need to pull the passenger seat forward to slide it out. It needs to have the hooks secured in the little black metal slots on the outside edge of the bed.
LIVING ROOM-
The living room TV remote is Velcroed to the wall above the dinette. Sometimes, it doesn’t get secured properly and falls between the dinette and passenger seat while driving.
There are some playing cards, Sorry, Yahtzee, and a couple other games in the right cupboard above the dinette.
There is also a speaker in this cabinet that can be used for music via Bluetooth or Karaoke.
There is an AT&T Hotspot plugged in inside the left cabinet above the dinette. It is Velcroed in place, but you can lift it to set on the table or unplug it to move it for a better signal. PLEASE DO NOT DRIVE WITH THE HOTSPOT OUT OF THE CABINET. If it falls, it will break and it wasn’t cheap. It only has 100 gigs per month so you may or may not be able to use it for Wi-Fi (in most areas). So out of respect for anyone renting the RV later in the month, please don't fall asleep with all the TVs on.
There are some utensils (spatula, ladle, plastic silverware), cups, a cutting board, and Tupperware in the left and middle cupboards above the couch.
The right-side cupboard above the couch has some tools in it (hammer, measuring tape, etc.) just in case you need them for anything.
There is a type C phone charger in the driver’s area to plug your phone into. This will allow your phones GPS or music to show on the display screen.
KITCHEN-
There is a coffee maker, coffee filters, coffee, hot sauce, olive oil, and apple cider vinegar in the cupboard above the sink.
There are pots and pans below the refrigerator.
Common spices and 4 coffee/tea cups are in the spice rack above the stove.
There are plates, bowls, aluminum foil and garbage bags in the drawer below the stove. PLEASE REMEMBER TO WASH YOUR DISHES BEFORE YOUR RETURN.
There is silverware in the bottom 2 drawers and pot holders in the top drawer under the sink.
The garbage can is in the cupboard under the sink.
There are paper towels, toilet paper, and small plastic bags above the refrigerator.
BATHROOM-
If you would like to take a shower, make sure to turn on the water heater, using the switch in the hallway, a little while beforehand. Otherwise, it will be a very cold shower! 😊
There are 4 striped beach towels and 4 gray shower towels in the cupboard and on the door of the bathroom.
There is RV/SEPTIC SAFE toilet paper in the bathroom, but if you need more there are extra rolls in the cabinet above the refrigerator. Please, only use septic safe if you end up needing more than is in the RV.
There is a little bucket of holding tank treatment under the bathroom sink. You can follow directions for adding this is you need to freshen up the tank on your trip. There is also laundry detergent and dryer sheets under the sink as well. PLEASE REMEMBER TO EMPTY THE BLACK AND GRAY TANKS BEFORE YOUR RETURN.
BEDROOM-
There are 2 type C phone chargers in the drawer in the bedroom. There is a plug in on each side of the bed where you can use them.
There will still be a free plug on each side so you can plug in a breathing machine as well if needed.
The plug in closer to the window is on the front of the nightstand.
The plug in closer to the bedroom door is in the side of the bed frame. You may need to lift the blankets to see it.
The remote for the bedroom TV is Velcroed to the top of the nightstand on the right.
There is a small laundry basket in the cabinet by the bed. If you use this, please remember to empty it when you are packing up.
There is a 4” mattress pad on the bed in the bedroom. If you have anyone sleeping in the over cab area, I recommend placing this pad up there since the bedroom bed is not too bad, but the over cab area is very hard (it has 2 compartments that lift up for storage that make it uncomfortable).
You can use any of the dresser or cabinets as you would like.
BUNKBEDS-
The top bunk is kind of a pain to raise and lower. It scrapes against the right side of the wall while raising and lowering it, so let’s all leave it down please.
The remote for the top bunk's TV is Velcroed in the top right corner next to the TV.
The remote for the bottom bunk will be above the bottom bunk TV.
There are headphone jack splitters in each of these TVs. PLEASE DO NOT UNPLUG THEM. It is hard to get them plugged back in. These are there to make it easier for you to plug in your headphones.
There is a collapsible drying rack under the bottom bunk. It can go outside or be put in the shower. It’s great for towels and swimsuits. There is also a pop-up garbage can (for outside use) under the bottom bunk. Please use a garbage bag in this to keep it clean.
OUTSIDE-
In the passenger side storage areas there are 4 adult camping chairs and 2 small (toddler size) camping chairs.
There is a 4ft folding table, along with outdoor carpets, leveling blocks, innertubes for floating in water, and a small charcoal grill (possibly even with bags of charcoal left) in the rear drivers side storage compartment.
There is a hose and a water filter in one of the little storage compartments. I hook the filter directly to the water spigot instead of to the camper so there is no risk of anyone running by and breaking the filter connector off in the water hookup.
The city water hookup is on the driver side of the camper labeled City Water.
The electric hookup is also on the driver side in the long compartment. There is a hole you can fish it through so you can plug in to the electric at a campsite without needing to keep the compartment open.
There are two adaptors, so you can plug in to 30A, 50A, or 110V power.
*There is also a surge protector (the yellow and black cord) please use this when you are plugging in!
The outside TV is in a compartment under the window behind the passengers door. The remote is Velcroed inside the compartment.
The awning can be extended or retracted using the button above the steps.
There is also a button for the LED lights that run under the awning and a button for the little light next to the door next to the steps.
There is a shoe rack as soon as you open the door.
These videos might help with hookup info. The first one shows where the fresh water fill is, along with the city water hookup. The second video shows electrical. The third video shows how to dump the black and gray tanks.

RecommendationsIf you are new to the RV life and unfamiliar with Boondocking, there are a few places you can always spend the night without paying. Walmart parking lots, rest stops, or gas stations where you see truckers parked in the back. We have also just pulled over on the side of road or parked at closed gas stations and such. Parking on the side of Route 66 was one of my favorites. In situations like this, you won’t want to run the generator all night, so I recommend having a couple portable chargers.
Also, even with the hotspot, there will be dead zones. I like to download a few podcasts and songs on my phone, or cartoons/movies on a tablet or external hard drive ahead of time. That way when you hit a dead zone you still have music and something to keep the kids busy. Or at night if you aren't hooked up to electricity you have something to watch before bed.
If you will be staying at multiple paid camping sites, a Good Sam membership is cheap and usually gets you a 10% discount at RV parks. Ask or mention it when making your reservations.
Other things to noteBe respectful. There is no smoking of any kind in the RV. No pets allowed in the RV (my husband is allergic to cats and I am allergic to dogs). If you spill something, clean it up. If you have garbage throw it away. If you use the last of something, please replace it. If you are staying at a paid campsite, empty the black and gray tanks before you leave. If you do it while staying at a campground, it is free.
If you are not staying at a campground, or try to go to a dump station after you leave, it costs money (around $10-$20).
If you do not empty the black and gray tanks, a $100 fee may be assessed.
If you leave a mess that requires excessive cleaning (stickers stuck to all the solid surfaces, mud tracked all over everything, sticky spills that were left for days) there will be an extra cleaning fee proportional to the excessive mess.

Meet your host, Amber

Member since 2022

Hello, My name is Amber. My husband, Alex, and I bought an RV about 3 years ago and immediately fell in love with road trips! Our children, Ashton and Aunika, like to come with as well and have been to about half of the country. Our goal is to cross of every state before selling our RVs and parking a 5th wheel at our favorite camping spot for the summer. I hope you have as much fun and create as many cherished memories as we have!
