We are heading out! 3 weeks, on the road, with our kids, minus our dogs. Truck, trailer and an open road. We are heading to Seattle for Amanda and Tim's wedding. (Stevens little sis). We decided rather than spend the money on plane flights and then turn around and come back, we will be towing our trailer and making some fun stops along the way. Yes, 3 weeks of trailer living. We have a 24ft trailer that we will be living in. There is a pull down bunk on top that the big boys sleep on. Under that is a portacrib for Trenton and up front is our bed. Before this trip, we slept on a futon like queen mattress. More than 3 nights of sleep on that pretty much killed my back. (The sad reality that I must be getting old). For several months Travis had heard about the Casper Mattresses on his podcasts he listens to, so we purchased one, it arrived in a few days, and it is currently in our trailer. We are excited to use it. If all the hype about it is true, we may end up moving it into the house when we return.
We have also renovated the toy hauler, just a bit to make the living arrangement inside doable for 3 weeks. We took out the tables and one couch, took out the nasty rolled up carpet and laid new flooring in the back half, and have added hooks and hangers to every inch. (See pictures below). Command hooks are my new best friend.
I can't stand when we travel and I have to dig through bags to find clothes for the boys. After a few days, clothes are everywhere. Our trailer lacks storage, so I purchased these bins from Target. Each boy has a drawer. I used the amazing KonMari method to utilize space and rolled their clothes to make more fit. Its nice that Trenton is so mall, because I was able to bring a ton of clothes for him. Between the 5 of us, I plan to do laundry every 3 days or else I fear dirty clothes will rule my life. The adorable poster of the United States I also purchased in the dollar section.
