One of the questions we get asked the most is “What does it look like inside?” Well, I certainly could share some pristine photos of what it looked like before we moved in. But what fun is that? Here is an unedited, slightly messy tour of our inside!
We own a 2013 Itasca Meridian made by Winnebago. It is 37 feet long and has three slides; one in the bedroom, one on the driver’s side living room, and a full slide on the passenger side.
For those guys out there that have the need to know, it has Cummins Diesel 6.7 ISB, 360 HP Engine on a Freightliner Custom Chassis.
For the girls: You are the dishwasher! LOL!
So welcome aboard! Be sure to wipe your feet. I’ve spent the last few days trying to get all that red Georgia mud out of my motorhome. Now I’m in Virginia and I’m tracking black mud in. I guess that is what I get for having a white interior!
This is a look from the driver’s seat back. I haven’t done a ton of decorating yet, as we haven’t been in it too long, but I have included some pops of color. Not that I really have any wall space for pictures. The cool thing about a motorhome is that nearly every square inch is storage.
Faith is busy guarding her couch. There is an envelope dog bed that I made them behind the driver’s seat, which Ralph tends to take over.
Faith and I share the little footstool that you see. I’m too short to get in half my cabinets, and she is too old to get on the couch without help. Both of us were getting tired of asking for assistance, so the stool came to be.
This is the passenger side. Both couches fold out into beds. You will find that most everything in a motorhome has dual purposes. The drivers seat and passenger seat actually will turn around and become recliners as part of the living room. (When we aren’t driving, of course)!
This is my little kitchen. I have a gas stove, microwave/convection oven and a full size refrigerator. Oh, and I have a husband who loves to cook outside on his charcoal grill. It is the best of both worlds!
One thing I learned quickly was to pull my hair back when cooking. I leaned over the stove to reach something in the microwave and singed my hair. Dave wanted to know if I burnt dinner again.
The kitchen includes everything I need with the exception of a dishwasher. Well, since I am apparently the dishwasher, I take that back…
Across from the kitchen is our eating area. This photo shows the table with the leaf in. Not huge, but adequate. We were told the table would be large enough to seat four. They neglected to mention that they would be four incredibly small people.
If I need to do any crafting, I can do it here or work outside on the picnic table on a nice day. As you can see, I also use area as my office.
Behind the table are tons of cabinets. I use them as a pantry and also as storage for my craft supplies.
One thing that we insisted on when we were purchasing the RV was that we have a washer and dryer. While they are small, they do a great job. Dave is in charge of laundry, since I may or may not have colored an entire load of his white underwear and t-shirts pink.
Mistakes sometime come in the form of red undies.
Anyway, it worked out well for me. I haven’t had to wash clothes since!
This is our little bathroom. There is a shower to the left. I have to tell you that the toilet takes a little getting used to. The trap in the toilet opens directly to the tank below.
The trick is to not have the vent fan going when you open the trap. Believe me, you don’t want to have the fan on when you open the trap.
Take my word for it.
One of my biggest worries was that my bathroom would smell like a port-a-potty. It actually does not. I was pleasantly surprised. Well, unless you accidentally do the vent/trap thing above…
The bedroom has a queen sized bed. The mirrors to the left are actually a nice sized closet. And tons of tons of storage space!
When we are on the road, this is what the inside looks like when the sliders are in. Big difference!
To travel, I have to put everything away that might slide around. And be extremely careful when I open the fridge once we are at a campground. Things shift around and I may or may not have had to clean up a dozen eggs off that white tile.
Live and learn.
Anyway, I hope you have enjoyed your tour! Be careful going down the steps on your way out. And try to avoid that black Virginia mud. It gets everywhere!
