Would love to know how it holds up to full time use. We love our Aspen Trail. Leica ? Surveyor or Remote Sensing? We use Leica equipment at work for documenting crash scenes, I was a GIS major in college and used mostly Leica equipment and software for that too.

Keep us posted on your fulltime adventures. my wife and I want to live fulltime in an Rv( our 1900RB is too small), and keep our full time jobs.

Joel

I'm being a bit of a poseur with the Leica shirt. My wife got it for me. I shoot with an Olympus OMD EM-5. She shoots with a Canon.

Hopefully the Aspen Trail holds up over the next six months. It doesn't get too cold in Augusta.

on your new camper! And good luck full timing it. Sounds like fun. Keep posting from time to time and let us know how it's going.

Observations

So far things are going well. The only issue I am having is daytime heat. During the afternoon it's been getting into the 90's. My spot has no shade, insulation is R7 all the way around and there is one 13.5k A/C. The A/C does an adequate job in the main living area at full blast but the little duct coming into the front bedroom is not up to the task. There is a wall between the main living area and bedroom with one sliding door. I'm going to buy a fan to bring some of the cooler air from the living area into the bedroom. One positive is the gas/electric DSI water heater. With both the gas and electric on, we were able to take three showers and back to back with hot water to spare.

on the rig.

If you have a ceiling fan in the bedroom, crack it open some and turn the fan on to medium. That should draw plenty of cool air to the bedroom.

Unfortunately there's no ceiling fan in the bedroom, just a small a/c duct.
