Cut out on side with access from door makes handy spot to quickly grab flip-flips, doggie leash, bug spray, etc.

Interior pictures...   Many, mucho, gargantuan thanks to ALL of the responses to my solicitation for suggestions on options when this was being built.  Many of you will recognize your brilliant suggestions.  Those that I did not take were assuredly no-less brilliant, they just didn't fit my need, which is for storage and simplicity while full-timing with just one person and a doggie.  Thanks you's guys and gals!

When an uninvited insect guest gets into our rig, it always goes for the ceiling.  First time, I squished it...which was obviously not the thing to do on the light colored ceiling material.  Ick!

Mostly we just break out the mini vac and suck 'em up...especially in areas where Mosquitos wait by the door for us to open it!

By the way, we have found that those Thermacell units really do keep the bugs away from you.  We have two now.  One is the lantern type (just an LED light) that we keep on the picnic table or chair table, and the other is the one you can wear on your belt when walking the dogs or hiking.  We leave that one by the coach door when not walking with it and it does a great job of keeping the bugs away from the entrance.

Good info, Barry.  ThumbsUp
I'll be attending the Irv2 gathering in Myrtle Beach and have the Blue Ox team perform any needed service on my 7 year old Aventa II. The cost is published as $30.00, which is a great deal.  Cheers

You did good by not getting the stick-on graphics, which will eventually crack and peel. Removing them also leaves a ghost outline where they were, even after a short time.
Nice looking unit.

We roll into Acadia tomorrow for two weeks of boondocking in the National Park campgrounds (one week in each). There are flush toilets but no showers at camp (pay showers outside the park). We plan to "bathe" at least once or twice a week at Echo Lake if the water is warm enough (swim then wash up in a bucket back at camp). We've backpacked so bucket washing is nothing new. The campgrounds do have a dish washing station so that will help us some on the grey water and we have a solar shower water bag that we plan to use for outdoor washing up at the site. We'll have 4 people for 4 1/2 days and 3 people the rest of the time. Since we are driving from one campground to the next between the weeks, we hope to recharge batteries that way and avoid using the generator and disrupting the solitude of the forest if we can. This is our biggest boondocking test so far. John and I can easily do ten days or more with just the two of us but we'll have two untrained visitors so we have to work with them. We've already scheduled off work since all we've read says NO cell signal at either campground. I also checked the Verizon map and it shows dead zones on that side of the island so our cell phone booster won't help this time. It will be nice to be unplugged. We have our Subaru with us so driving around won't be an issue.

We plan to hit the Whale and Puffin tours, drive to the top of Cadillac Mountain, do the Tidal Pool Ranger program and probably tons more. Will report back after we rejoin the electronic world.
