I did find the cargo carrier I want. It's a basket with a top and comes with a zippered liner. It's large enough to hold my folding bike and doggie cart and the cost is $404.00 with free delivery.
Went to the State Farm Insurance office to transfer my policy to the new RV. Was informed that the insurance carrier does not recognize this RV as a motorhome but as a van for personal use. OK, that's fine with me. Also was informed that according to my VIN number, the 10th digit of the VIN indicates the year of the vehicle. My vehicle is not a 2005 but a 2004. It was suggested that perhaps the vehicle was made at the end of 2004 and presented in 2005. OK, so it's a year older than I thought.
I still have to go to the DMV which I am dreading due to the long waits.
I have been adding some personal touches to the van and enjoy driving it around town. It's nice to be able to back up and actually see where you are going by looking out of the windows. Couldn't do that in the Class C.
I set up the table to see what it would do to the space and I think I'll leave it up. I can still use the fireplace as the table post fits just right in front of it. I added a surge protector (located on the side of my bed) to enable me to plug in the lamp, fireplace, computer, and heating pad for my back. All the comforts of home.
I'm not able to hang all of the things I had in the Class C but I did find room for the mermaid.
This is before I put up the table and planned to use the lap tray.
My cute little kitchen.
There's room for all of my things. Love the drawers, which I didn't have in the Class C.
I clipped the trash basket to the railing and was also able to store my clothes hamper against the wall.
I was able to hang my Mardi Gras mask and use the over the door hooks for my scarves.
This is the sofa.
This is my bed. I removed the lap tray and will collapse the tray above it to give me more room. I have since placed the floor table in front of the fireplace for my eating use and computer use.
With floor table added.
The light blue bedding looks nice and is very soothing to me.
My cute little refrigerator.
Room for the doggie bowls. I also have 2 drawers for the kitchen. One is for utensils and one is my tool drawer.
I placed a layer of blue rugs then covered them with these white rugs. It helps keep the floor warm and can be easily washed if the doggies have an accident.... which they did on this trip.
The doggies still have their beds on the passenger seat. I like the idea of these seats swiveling but don't think I will be doing that. The eating and sitting area is going to be in the rear of the van.
The convection microwave oven. It takes an engineering degree to operate.
Room for my toaster and can opener. I love the spice rack for all my Louisiana Cajun spices.
I have so much more room in my driveway. The Pleasure Way is 9 feet tall and my deck is 8 feet so I can only pull under a few feet. My conversion van fits nicely under the deck. I do have a cover for the camper.
I've been practicing my card reading as it has been some years since I dabbled with it.
This self-reading was pretty close to what I was experiencing. Mostly positive, as was my mood this whole weekend.
Mardi Gras is our next Holiday and I've done a little decorating for it.
Love this mask.
I'm really enjoying this camper and I was very comfy and cozy in my Pleasure Way Van on this short trip to Madisonville, LA. Looking forward to the next one.
