Well, we finally took the plunge! We are now the proud owners of a 2008 Thor Vortex, 39 foot 5th wheel toy hauler. I briefly wrote about her here because we bought her in DECEMBER, I know, I'm a little behind. She has three slide outs and plenty of storage (way more than our apartment!). Over the coming weeks and months, we'll be giving you a "before" tour as well as the progress we've made on the "demolition." That's right! Our journey towards tiny living has begun!

As you've read about in the past, the initial dream was to build our own custom tiny house but after touring some different options and speaking with a tiny home builder, we were forced to shift directions a bit. What we wanted, though reasonable, was at least double our price ceiling. With some design limitations or requirements we had and some time constraints, it just wasn't feasible for us to move forward with the project. We feel super grateful though to have found the 5th wheel toy hauler when we did and are so excited to start working on her.

Our apartment lease ends the end of May, so our goal is to do some remodeling on the interior, to make it feel like our own style and aesthetic before moving in. I'm hoping to post some before and after photos for you to see as well as share some things we are learning on this journey of tiny living and what full-time RV life is REALLY like. No sugar-coating over here! Won't you come along? If you have blog post requests in regards to tiny living, or really anything, please send a message or comment below!

Also, if you'd like to check out our RV board on pinterest, you can find it here. Enjoy!
