Gotta pull mine out of the corner of the garage, not much to clean. Maybe add a bit of grease and away we go.
I did get a 1/2 cord of firewood a few weeks ago for the season.

Spring cleaning? Huh?

Hey, we've already spent 20 nights in ours. It's a little late for that!

Already camped 3 trips since January! :D Here’s last weekend.

But I do have a number of to-do’s that could amount to some spring cleaning. I need to get everything out of the trailer so I can cut the haphazard layers of gym mats to fit the actual shape of the floor. What better time than when everything’s out of the trailer to give it some sprucing up?

I have used mine once, 2 weeks ago. But it was dirty from last fall. Today I pulled it out, and I washed and waxed it and cleaned the windows. The trailer is hooked up and ready to leave in the morning for a long weekend!

This is our first spring with the teardrop. I kept mine in our garage all winter. Never got colder than 50 degrees in there so winterizing wasn't much of an issue.

We did do some impromptu spring cleaning last weekend though. I decided to straighten a ding in the passenger side fender and while I was doing that, the wife came out to see what I was up to and decided to pull all the sheets and bedding out to wash. Then she decided to remove all of the kitchen ware to run it all through the dishwasher in the house. I took advantage of the empty shelves to put in some additional LED lighting in the galley...

Pretty soon I'm cleaning off the solar panels, and bleaching the water tanks just for good measure, and she's wiping the windows down and going through the clothes that we keep in there. It ate up a whole Sunday. :)

Went out to a local campground, tried out new pull out stove and drawer, as well as new rain fly attachment. Cleaned out everything including basement. Had enough bedding and blankets for six!ImageImage
