There are signs of spring in the air. I just noticed the sprouts of daffodils poking out from the brown leaves on the side of my house. So, of course that means it is high time that we start working on the Pearl again. Last year we completed the bulk of her renovation, but there are a few things that we have left to do. Well, maybe not have to do.
I really would like to add some baby moons and white wall tires. If anyone out there knows what size and a source for these that would fit on a Shasta Compact, please let me know.
Another wish list item that I have is an outdoor mat for camping. Having some trouble here.....I would love a mat with a fun fresh style, but alas, the mats seem to be designed by the same crusty old man that designs the paint scheme on the sides of contemporary rv's - broad strokes of analogous colors. Someone should really clue the RV industry to the fact that this design was dated 15 years ago.
So here is a possibility:
I also want to add some fun party lights, like these from beau coup:

Ok, yeah, we still don't have the water tank installed, boring. Just need to set my priorities - fun stuff, first, then water tank, electric heater, and fix that "cam over" problem that we had last summer (see our blog from last summer's cross country trip)
