Winterizing Extravaganza Open House

We had a great time this weekend at our open house.
We not only helped people winterize their trailers, but we also gave some day/night shade restring lessons. Bryan the president of Peterson Industries was here to visit with everyone and answer questions. Tim and Rosie shared their experiences of living "on the road" full time. Dave was the master of the grill, and cooked up some mean burgers and dogs.

Excel's new 36CFE

The new 36CFE is a beauty!
The first thing that will catch your eye is the amazing kitchen with it‘s abundant cabinets and counter space. Next is the center fireplace, which separates the living area from the kitchen.
You can kick your feet up and enjoy the ambiance the fireplace offers,
or watch a good game on the large TV.

If you full-time or just like to rough it in ultimate comfort
you will love the floor plan and all the smart storage space this unit offers.

The bathroom and bedroom are beyond luxurious.
When your in the walk-thru bathroom you’ll forget you’re in a 5th wheel.
The way it opens up into the bedroom makes it live large!

Come by and see this trailer when you’re in our neck of the woods.

Excel Clubs Fall Campouts

We had such a wonderful time at both the Colorado and New Mexico Excel Clubs Fall Campouts.
It's always such a blessing to be able to spend time with our friends enjoying conversations, campfires, and wonderful meals. Creede, Colorado was a beautiful setting for both weekends.
We are already looking forward to the spring campouts!

Colorado Club

You can really see the difference in the leaves changing between CO and NM. What a difference a couple weeks can make.

Continuation of Miller’s awning arm….

Jim and Verna had been racking their brains trying to figure out how they were going to fix the awning arm from the Kool Kids Kampout disaster (read previous post to see the whole story). Verna put her foot down at the Colorado Excel Club Campout in Creede and told Jim he had to figure something out because she could NOT take one more day without shade from her awning! Jim decided he would use his wood carving skills and make his own awning arm from the pile of firewood he found.

Little did he know that at the very same time Kathy was working in her workshop (a lot like Santa’s workshop) and crafting an awning arm that would fit perfect!

When Kathy arrived at the campout she found Jim covered in wood splinters, and Verna sunburned. She quickly and effortlessly installed the new awning arm, gave Jim some tweezers and Verna a bottle of Aloe ointment.
The crowds cheered, and everyone lived happily ever after.
