How cheap it is!

While on a working trip in North Dakota in july 2005 a buddie & i both bought 5er's he got a new 04 Jayco & i got a 95 Dutchmen, we tired of paying the hotel chains big money for lodging. Here's the story, we were camping in Bismark / Mandan campground still working when a rain storm came along 2 weeks after purchase & i forgot to warn him about angling awning in rain for quick run off, crash, boom awning broke got replaced & he kept material, a year & a half later my awning material was deteriorated & ripped loose along coach side, he gave me the one he saved & i put it on my self & it worked great and was really cheap since it only took 2 hours for the whole job. but alas the Dutchmen served me well i now have just traded her in on my 2002 Sandpiper 35RLTS---WOO-HOO 8' longer & 2 more slides!!

Since there aren't any heat vents in the back of my toy hauler, it got a little chilly in the spring & fall. I now carry a 4' electric heater that keeps the back of the trailer warm and the furnace runs less.

We, too do most cooking w electrc. We have a 5ft plastic table (has a metal frame) which I wired w 4 110V duplex outlets w 12-2 w Gnd and a grounded plug. We plug it directly into the 110V - 20 amd plug in the pole at the site. This was a left over from our trashed "pup" whch was sent to POPUP eternity by a neighbor at 60+ mph. The pup was parked. And we also use a small (1500watt) elec heater, which has a tip over safety switch. Why pay for gas, when the site has electrc.

Took my daughter to college from Illinois to Forida. 15 hour trip and drove straight through. Only stopping for gas... Stayed at brother inlaws house in florida. Doesn't get much cheaper than that! Exceptin' for that college bill!

At the camper I always chainsaw all my firewood... too cheap to buy a load when I can get trees for free and they are usually down.
