While at the Rally this week I got the bright idea to pull
my original curtain out from under the counters and hang
it over the bed area. I was getting chilly with the a/c blowing
on me and thought this would deflect it a bit.

But the window curtain is a bit short and too narrow unless I
happen to find a matching pair to add to it. Since I have to sew
the new material I've been accumulating, I may make a special
one for this area.

Anyway, you'll never know what it looks like unless you hang it.

With the non-square design and the door in the rear (well, those
are excuses) I just don't have any imagination..........LOL

First pic (finding items one or two at a time).
I'm not a flea-market/yard sale kind of person, but may become one.



If I were solo-ing I could use my very old coffee mug from the Navy years.
USS America CVA-66 (aircraft carrier) in Tonkin Gulf (Viet Nam). 1970



Or maybe set for two except wife hates coffee (could pour her some coke)



The very first inkling of doing anything was looking for a solution to cover the back door window. Daughter likes butterflies so she got to pick this out for blocking all the windows. This one I velcro-ed in the four corners so it didn't fall off when I used the screen door. First trip or two I was throwing my shirt over the door and closing it at night. Didn't care much for that.

And yes, this is a car shade. We picked up several at Walmart in some town near the campground we were at.

Great Idea!

I just found this thread and enjoyed reading it - we are seriously considering a Snoozy and I am ready to contact the factory to make an appointment to visit. But in the meantime I have a question - on this thread and others everyone seems to talk about finding items at Walmart. Does anyone shop at Target or elsewhere? Or does Walmart have a lock on the camper market?

I hit the Targets, Dollar General, Family Dollar, Walmart, flea markets,
antique shops, and on and on. Haven't hit any garage sales as yet.

When decorating you find what you find when you find it where you find it.......LOL.

Some have a lot of talent and just make their own.
Hopefully, I will be able to get a crafter's area going again and make a lot
of my own things. I have many plaster molds in storage. I like to paint and
also wood working.

I've also gotten some of my things from Amazon.com

More Coffee Curtains

Today was the day we set aside to get a new windshield
for our 2002 Astro AWD van. We left at 8 am for a 10 am
appointment. When we got there, they had the wrong windshield.
Instead of the astro w/s, they had an S-10 w/s. So it was either
go home and reschedule or return at 2 pm that afternoon.

So, we had several hours to kill until then. We hit the K-mart
and I found some more coffee curtains on clearance. We walked
through a couple Walmarts, a restaurant supply and a Big Lots store.

When we finally got home, I went out and changed out one of the
windows. Flower curtains? or more coffee curtains? Now that I've
changed them and had some time to stew on it, think I may go back
to the flowery curtains........LOL

No wonder you ladies keep moving furniture around.................LOL

Snoozy

Carl, one of the reasons I liked the Snoozy so much was because of the big windows. So for me, curtains are out! The mini blinds that came with the Snoozy provide privacy at night and let the great outdoors in come morning. I have considered a little something to cover JUST the tops of the miniblinds, but so far, it is just a thought. I like the curtains that were provided in the bed area because they are neutral and blend with any seasonal colors I want to use with the linens, pot holders, etc. Those things I do play with as the seasons change. Variety is the spice of life, but don't make it so hard! Go camping!

Thanks Susie........
You're right, just go camping. lol.

That's another reason I think I'm going back to the flowery curtains.
Last camping trip I had them open wide. They did fine making believe
they weren't there. Then I closed them up at night.

At the beginning I didn't want any window coverings, but it keeps growing
on me. I think I've found the combination for me. Takes care of the man
side and the woman side of me. lol.

Carl, hope I didn't offend. My thoughts came out wrong and it bothered me all night. The beauty of these little campers is that you could completely redo them, and they are so small compared to even a small home, that you could do it often just for the fun of it if you so desired. Have fun with whatever you decide.

Not to worry Susie..............
I know our real expressions get lost in forums.
Sorry you were bothered all night.......LOL
That just shows you have a really good heart.

Classy decor

Hi Carl, sure enjoy your posts and your deco that is in the camper.
Getting many helpful tips for use when we get a Lil Snoozy.
My grandkids liked the picture of your grandson sitting in the bathroom with all the t-paper.
I wanted to know if you have a closet -dont remember seeing one when we looked at your camper.
Thanks

That may be the one negative. No closet.
We bought some baskets that fit in the cabinets under the television.
One of each of us and a couple smaller ones for the incidentals.
McDenny configured his own interior so he could have a closet.
One twin bed cross ways in the nose and a twin bed where the couch is.
They had room that way to build in a closet next to the bathroom.

They have been traveling just the two of them and works for them.

I keep marking off things on a list I take I don't need and we have storage
we haven't utilized yet.

Here's my backyard photo shoot. It will let you re-examine the trailer.
If there's anything you would like in particular I will be glad to take
shots of it and post it up for you.

Found this flag for when camping at a new SuperCenter
at Branson, MO. this week. About $15.00

Found these items at the 5 & 10 downtown Branson.
$8.95 for the Route 66 sign and $3.98 for the sailor tin.
I'm thinking I may have picked up the wrong double sided tape.
I wanted to see how it looked and to be able to move it if desired.
But when I pulled on them, I realized I used my roll of permanent
double-sided tape. Oh, well...........

I looked at some light switch covers I finally found at a
big flea market type place in Branson but they were $5.99 each.
Then the next day I hit the K-mart in Branson and found these
vinyls on sale for 30 cents each, but they checked out at 15 cents each.
I got all four of the flag ones. So instead of $6.00, I got what I wanted
for 15 cents.......lol

I found these party lights at a Walmart on the Ark/Missouri line.
So I'm getting close to setting up for a long stay somewhere.......

I also changed my curtains back while I was at it.

NOTE: Maybe I can repaint the doors on these and turn them into Snoozys.....LOL
