Decided to revive this thread, instead of starting another, since it has such a nice title to it.
When I purchased the little 213 about 1 1/2 years ago I actually didn't have any expertise on RV's, and I must admit to picking the 213 for no other reason than that amazing bathroom! At the time I didn't have the normal "pressure" that most shoppers would have because I intended to live in it for no more than 3-4 months. My strategy was to hide in the air conditioning throughout the June-August Texas coastal heat, then build me a proper tiny-house for permanent residence.
Well, so much for plans. Turns out the 213 exceeded all my expectations and does such a stunning job of providing the same "tiny-house" lifestyle that I was aiming at. So well, in fact, I can't seem to muster the effort to ................
This weekend I spent all of a couple of hours remodeling the dining room. That's code for 30 minutes of screw-gun based demolition, and an hour or so of assembling new furniture.
Yep, it's an office now. MUCH more useful to me AND I gain a comfortable
sitting position! (That booth just ergonomically tortured this old man)
I also gain back any storage space I lost with cheap and light (plastic) drawer units.
And finally, although I have posted bedroom mods in the past, I am finished on that end too. Out came the unused mattress space and I gained a reading room and a nice stack for drawers for clothing.
Can you tell I LOVE this little tiny-house 213?
While I'm sure you have to have some sort of gene in your DNA to live tiny, if you DO have that blessing, this little Aerolite is a fantastic canvas to start with.
And even if you get a bit of cabin fever, most of us know that ALL of these RV's have the advantage of being able to nestle up to some spot that makes a glorious porch. A room as big as the outdoors!
It helps, of course, to be somewhere that has 9 months of porch weather.
