We have officially become RV owners (again) which = we are Homeschooling in an RV! Being a family of 5 takes its toll on the budget when it comes to vacations. Everything is 2 rooms, 2 cabins, 2 this, 2 that. When we ran into a snafu at Easter time, we had to rework our plans which lead me to mention “it would be nice to have our rv again.” That lead to a journey to find the best suited one for us. Prior to this cute camper, we owned a 26′ travel trailer that weighed almost 8,000 lbs. We only had one child at the time. It was over the top for sure. When it came to this purchase, we wanted something lightweight, easy to pull by both vehicles or a rental, and that had the necessities (i.e.- slide, air conditioning, bathroom, and storage). Amazingly, we found it in this little bit of fun. Meet our 2016 Clipper Classic 1285SST. If you count the two beds on the ends, our RV Living space is less than 175 square feet.
Less than 175 sq. ft. of living (homeschooling) space!
Welcome to Miami!
You can’t even see part of the RV because it is covered in lush landscaping.
Hola casa de la suegra. (Hello Mother-in-Law’s House).
I am pretty sure the bees were just trying to make me happy, but they all did their work without whining or pushing back. Vacation makes my crew lazy and they don’t always want to work. They knew that if they wanted to have a good time and enjoy hanging out with their cousins and friends then they had to get it done. And done correctly. So how does a typical day work for us? Thanks to the canvas lining, we are awake pretty early. Well Marty and I were. We weren’t on the side with all the lush trees. Their side was dark and ours was light. However, the kids started moving earlier than normal. They immediately got dressed. We had breakfast (mostly Cheerios because it is easier). We have a 3 burner gas stove (the bananas are sitting the cover for it in the photo below). Neither one of us wanted to use it that early in the morning so cereal was the go-to. They brush their teeth afterwards and the school day begins. We do a complete run down of work like we do in our house. There is no changes to it. I have found the bees do their work faster in the rv than they do in the house. I may make them use the rv in the driveway if it gets our days running smoothly. Watch out neighbors!
What does the layout look like?
Interested in our layout? With the beds and slide completely out, we have about 175 square feet. That number is counting the bed’s square footage as well. Each end has a king size bed…
There is also a Mother’s Day rafflecopter giveaway of TWO KitchenAid Stand Mixers.
