Greywolf 26RR

Hi Everyone! Janet and Les from Indiana here. We bought our toyhauler last year, very end of the year. We had it built a little different in the bathroom. Wanted to go off grid and be able to travel anywhere and not be dependent on water/sewer hookups. So we got the portable solar hookup and had them eliminate the toilet in the bathroom. We bought a composting one to install (pretty simple installation really) and didn't have water lines run for the toilet. Granted we took a big risk in case we hated it, but we were confident (or crazy) enough to do it anyway. Best decision ever! Zero, zip, nada, none, and a big fat NO odor or problems with the composting toilet! Now that dreaded black tank is a spare fresh water tank for going off grid. Two generators too. Why? Don't remember the reasons. A guy thing?

Have had it set up for months now by a lake in an RV or tent campground. Opted for 6 month seasonal and a decent sandy beach. Dock is nice too! Hooked up to 30 amp service and water. I've never camped before and I love it!! My husband Les camped some when he was younger. He's always hunted too. This camper was set up so he can go anywhere to hunt and not worry about whether or not there's a "space" available. After all the tent elk hunts (and my sleepless nights worrying about a bear waking him up) he should be warm and cozy. I'll know by next month. Hunt is in a few weeks.

We've got a problem with the air conditioner though. It quit working. Already set to take it in when he gets back. From what I was told today by another seasonal camper at the park it's very common for this particular brand to quit working. Seems a few of the regulars have had 2, 3 or 4 replacements already. Hoping we're not going to have continuous problems with it though.

As for improvements to the trailer I guess pretty much the basic stuff. I made a braided leather tp roll holder that turned out great! And my fall/winter project is to make some custom slipcovers (denim) for the mini recliners. I'll make slipcovers for the cushions and backs of the sofas too. Don't want any keys or whatnot puncturing the fine pleather... I do know that I'd gladly give up my oven for a decent sized refrigerator. And I should've kept my EZ Bake Oven baking set from decades ago. About all that'll fit in the shoebox they call an oven. Come to think of it I have shoes that won't even fit in it.

Did get a fiberglass set of stairs for it. Elderly parents (90,91). Safety first.
Need to research getting good tv reception without spending a lot of cash. Anyone have any ideas? We'd sure appreciate any tips or advice.

First newbie camp food lesson learned too. S'Mores suck! I'll take cheesecake any day over that fire roasted mess. Love each ingredient, individually. Together? Yuck.

Congrats on your purchase. We love ours and I told wife that even if we fed not have toys we would look for toy hauler. There is a tread under toyhaulers/ Cherokee. Pimp my 26 rr. Lots of modes I did and others.

I'm not a fan either but the kids love it so that's the only reason you see me with a stick and a hot mallow flaming on the end.
