As much as I liked the idea of using Dr. Bronner's castile soap for everything, we wrote about it here, I developed some kind of a skin sensitivity to it! After a shower, my skin was very itchy and clean clothes even made me itch.

Oh, and FYI, I had to …


Hope the 5th Wheel BEFORE Photo Gallery
Well, we've already begun to work on Hope and she's already looking more presentable. What you're about to see though, are the original photos from the RV dealership's website. It looks like they've already taken them off the website so here is the link to the main page. Ok, without further ado, let's get into it!

What do you think?

When we first started looking at RV's, we focused our direction and attention on 5th wheels. We felt like travel trailers were too short for JP and we weren't c
