But electricity was connected to the house today.
Trailer plugged in.\

Should be out of the trailer in the next week.

It's over! 185 days total. Last 2 weeks I had electricity but no water.
I am now sleeping in the house.....but my appliances only show up today. So for now.....the trailer is my kitchen.

Congrats on getting it done (mostly). Looking awesome.
I for one hope you post some more pics of your handiwork!

Wow that's impressive.

Wife and I did it for 1 month in cold and mud on house site but had electric.
The worse part was our Border collie pup had mud everywhere and tore the screen door apart.
This was 7 years ago.

Thank you!
Ironically....I'll now probably sell the trailer next year.
I've got a great spot on a lake with all my sports gear, trails everywhere and peace and quiet..

I can't see myself feeling the need to camp for a while.

Further to that....COVID 2020 kept peoples vacations closer to home....the RV sales were off the chart.

Side affect?

Campsites are now packed....with waiting lists.
