Living out of my Western Flyer and other musings about RVing TB style
I mentioned last week when we were packing to leave for the beach that I was going to take my WF to use for my folding clothes. Now that we're back, I can address the usefulness a bit more. The MBR in our Travel Trailer has no drawers. It has a set of cabinets over and around the head of the bed. Two that are squarish actually over the bed and two that are suitable for half length hanging clothes.
There really isn't a great place for me, being the shortie that I am, to put my folding clothes, and keep them and the space looking nice. . . that is until I decided to bring my WF.
It fit perfectly under the hanging wardrobe onto what Jayco describes as the "chest" which in reality is a counertop area. My WF is a perfect fit width wise and there is plenty of room in front of it to store my Little Swift, iPad, iPhone, wristbrace (stupid camp injury that won't heal) and 1 lb bag of Red Hot candies. That was when I was feeling organized.
When I was feeling less organized, there was room to cram other things here too, but I'm not going to delve into that.
The WF kept my folded pants and tops wrinkle free and my undies and swimsuits contained (in my PCSB) and organized. I had no problems finding what I needed and since this trip was business and pleasure, it was essential that I could remain organized.
In the RVing setting, TB bags are super useful. We also brought along the Shop Bags and UT for everything from carrying materials for the children's program to and from the convention center, to shopping, toting our towels, keys and iPhone to the beach & pool, carrying shoes, packing and unpacking the TT and carrying extra water bottles on our bike ride.
My LS was the perfect purse for all of our outings from eating out to shopping, to conference meetings and didn't hold any sand or show any dirt. My Imago was my mobile office holding my iPad, reading, reader and knitting in the car and on various outings.
Without even trying my TB bags helped me to feel put together and organized which saved me from a lot of stress and frustration. Thanks TB!
Anybody else use their TB for RVing? I would love to hear your thoughts.
My only "complaint" if I can have one, is that TB doesn't have a larger variety of color in the packing cubes. I use packing cubes to keep the kids organized, and I need a different color for each of them, as well as myself and Rocky. Steel won't cut it when I need to quickly sort cubes and find something for one of the kids.
