Loading up "the coach"

We've spent the last 4 days trying to get our RV filled up with the necessities for our upcoming shake-down cruise and man, there is a LOT of stuff that needs to go in there...and we can't just take it out of the house and leave it in the RV. Like tools, for instance. I'm looking into getting a nice, neat tool kit at the local hardware store just for the RV. Otherwise, every time I need my hammer, it's, "is it in the coach? or in the garage"?

I've included three photos. One of our living room, our bedroom and the hallway looking from the bedroom towards the rear of the coach into the living room. We have two slides, one large one in the living room that really expands that living space and one small one for the bed to slide out a foot or so. 
Living Room. (Notice the beer bottle to the right.)

Hallway. Sink to the left. Bathroom/Shower to the right. (That's Nattie, one of our cats, scoping it out.)

Bedroom. We have "pillow windows". Allows for a nice breeze in the evening.

Today is Sunday and we're really hustling to get it all packed up because tomorrow we're heading up to Lake Solano for 3-4 days to try out all the systems before taking it out for an extended trip up towards the Redwoods on Highway 101.

Nice to hear all the comments from you that have responded. Thank you. Keep 'em coming!


  1. now just watch the "long long trailer" staring Lucille Ball and you will be ready for the adventure of a lifetime.

  2. Yes...a couple people have told us about that movie. We'll have to get it. The other one to watch is "RV" with Robin Williams...hilarious.

  3. Hmmm. I see I need to make my driveway turns a bit wider to get your rig on Lopez Island. I just made it wider for a motorhome. But a fifth wheel!? Good show Steve!

  4. Also recommend Camping Sauvage, 2004 French Canadian movie
