Cleaning out the old RV

Cleaned out the old RV today in preperation of getting our new TT on the 14th. We were pretty sad unloading thinking of all the memories that were created during the time we had it. Once the new one is here and the old one is traded in new memories will be ready for the making. It will be a long 10 days that is for sure.

I did that last year, time to make new memories. We started a journal with the new one. Write something for every day we are out and sign the text so we can remember who wrote it in the future. Sometimes it is a great incite to see what the children write.

This is a very timely thread for me as well. DW and I are in the process of emptying our TT, awaiting the arrival of our new 5-er. It's only been 2 1/2 years, and the amount of stuff and upgrades that I must now undo and unpack in preparation for repacking and reinstalling in the new unit is mind-boggling. Lots of good memories, I will miss the Salem. But the excitement is building for our XLR...currently working on motorcycle wheel chocks that will be removable when not needed. Don't even have the new unit yet, and already doing mods!

We had our RV for 5 years and agree with you on how much has accumulated in those few of years. Not going to be able to put it all back in had so much storage in the RV compared to the new TT. That is OK although we didn't need that much stuff anyway.

I like that idea of writing in a journal will have to do that with the new TT.

We've been thru it several times. Popup, then a hybrid, and a TT. Your camper will be going on to another family to build their memories. And you'll always have your memories to cherish.

I did that in February, spent two days cleaning the old girl out (With a lot of why do I have this? and bringing back old memories, even good ones with the ex. *shudder*) getting rid of stuff and deciding what goes in the new one.

Got the new one home, spent two weeks putting stuff in place, pulling it back out, putting it in another place, pulling it back out again. I'm pretty happy at this point though I'm thinking of redoing the basement again.

But.........when I dropped the old girl off I took a quick walk through her, wished her well and that I hoped she went to a good family to build new memories. The dealer sold it in less than three weeks.
