Pack and Play

We have had our new trailer for about 3-weeks.  We are planning a trip in the near future so we do need to get the trailer loaded.

We have been trying to load our things in a way that things we use most are easily accessible and the load is balanced overall. The problems loading a trailer over a period of weeks and in winter-time  are you forget what you have already put away and you cannot load anything that will freeze. I keep putting things into a box I have in the front hall to load later.

There are little tweaks you need to do to any new trailer for convenience and to make it your own.  So far we have installed a toothbrush holder in the bathroom, added shelves in the medicine cabinet, a bathroom cupboard and the pantry, mounted a digital thermometer, and added coat hooks inside the door.  In the last trailer we hung photos of family and trips we have taken using “On Command” strips. We may do that again but will hold off on that for a while.  It’s so cold we need to run the furnace when we go out there for any length of time to do something. I wonder how much LP we have used so far.

This trailer weighs 600 lbs. more than our Trail Sport and I believe that the only thing I have actually added is an extra blanket. So I’m happy about that. We do have a lot more space to put things, so it is tempting to load more.
