What Is Wrong With Me?!

Hi, my name is Michael and I'm a "Mod-oholic". I'm wondering why I can never leave "well enough" alone. Every time we camp, I find things with the trailer that I think could be better. It's like I'm possessed. So the latest additions are under bed led stip lighting because it was hard to find things at night and the bedroom light was over the mattress so no direct light in the box, closet organizers because we didn't have enough shelf space for folded clothes and usb chargeable motion detection lights in every closet. Pictures for al these can be found at https://flic.kr/s/aHskhF8D1r. Is there a support group for people like me?

No, they won't let you work on them while on the lot.

It must be contagious! I have the mod disease too. My wife wants to go camping and I want to stay home and mod the camper. When we do go camping I can't get my mind off of how to make the camper better and which mod I want to tackle next. What will I do if I run out of ideas for mods?

I have the same addiction...except besides the RV- I get addicted to modding trucks, M/C's, UTV, trailer, house...etc.

I need 3 of me. (with 3 incomes)
