Fulltime Living



How Much Room To Fulltime?


7am - Scampy living space
Many times during MsTioga’s fulltiming years, we would wonder if our living space would be better if smaller.

MsTioga was 20 feet from the back of the driver seat to the inside rear wall.

Scampy is just under 10 feet from the wall of the toilet/shower room to the inside rear wall.

So Scampy’s living space is 1/2 of MsTioga’s living space. Amazing! Because Scampy is sooooo comfortable!


8:30am - RV Trailer Supply
Yesterday, we made an appointment with Brett, the owner of RV Trailer Supply, to plumb in the 3/8 copper tube going from Scampy's water heater, to the fridge.

When that tubing run is in, Scampy will have hot water for a shower! Also, Scampy's stove will then operate, and we will be able to cook food!!

10am - Tecolote Canyon golfing
My friend John and I are golfing the the Tecolote Canyon Course. John has labeled Tecolote the golf course that everybody loves to hate!

A golfer who makes par on every hole on the Tecolote course, will have a score of 56. I wound up with 174! 118 OVER PAR. Oh my God!

2pm - Repair people love Baby Boid!
When John and I returned to RV Trailer to get Scampy, the repair people were fawning over Baby Boid. And Baby Boid entertained by tweeting his best tweets!

Baby Boid was really hamming it up!



11pm - Scampy sooooo organized!
Every nite since arriving in San Diego, Scampy has been more organized than the nite before. Now at my bedtime, I'm looking around at how things are. I'm so delighted!

The big propane tank that was so out of place [but necessary for warming] is now in the back of Little Honda. Our propane now comes from a gas hose underneath the kitchen sink. There is a quick disconnect valve on the end of the hose. The heater may now be stored with no hose attached.

The pic below shows the propane plumbing job that I had sooooo much trouble trying to do. That plumbing job was completed RV Trailer Supply in El Cajon.

  1. Amazing how little space you need to feel comfortable. Bigger is not always better.
    Mind you we have a 36ft class a coach, but there is 2 of us, plus all out stuff.

    1. Hi OAT,

      Is it difficult driving your 36 foot RV? When I drove MsTioga, who was 27 feet long, I hit lots of things, Fire hydrants. Fences. Other vehicles.

      Scampy at 13 feet, is easy. 😎

    2. I am used to it and towing the car we have a few issues over the years but we do manage.
      But smaller is bette .the problem with a a larger rv is we can;t go to places like you can now.Nut we sacrifice for the full-time lifestyle that e enjoy. Desert coming is much easier.

    3. Hi again, OAT,

      There are a whole lot of RVers living in motorhomes your size, than RVers living in trailers Scampy's size.

      Most RVers, especially lady RVers, like a lot of space. That's from my own observations.

  2. Everyone accumulates too much junk. As you know, all you need is a comfortable bed, a good chair, and a kitchen of some sort to keep yourself fed! The rest is extra. (Course, I like my TV and recliner, but they fit in my motorhome.)

    1. Hi Grandma,

      Your RV sounds comfy!

  3. Yes, George, Scampy is fine for short term, but you have lots of extras back in Twayler. It would not be so comfortable to live for many days without your comfy recliner, etc.

    1. Hi Rose,

      I was extremely surprised at how comfortable Scampy is now.

      The shower/toilet now doubles as a closet. That really allows Scampy to have a place for all my clothing in one place. That makes me feel real good, to see my clothes hanging neatly. Hanging keeps my clothing looking fresh too.

      I confess something, Rose. I could stay out doing Scampy Camps for a long time. Probably won't, though.

  4. Maybe Scampy is all you really need? Lot's of people full-time in small trailers.

    1. Hi Sheila,

      Do you recall that I am on the waiting list at Jojoba Hills RV Park? When I move into Jojoba, Twayler will have a permanent location and be my home base.

      Like now, Scampy will be my camping trailer. The best of both worlds! 😎

    1. Hi LBM,

      Are you contemplating a space of:

      18" high x 24" wide x 72" long?

  7. Oh George. There you go again. You crack me up!

  8. George, my disconnect is behind a door under the fridge. I made a hole in the door so I could run the hose to the disconnect so I could close the door, making it easier to move around. It doesn't look that great, but to me it's worth it.
