Caravan & Travel Trailer Remodeling

Happy Earth Day all you small house living folks! I wanted to share with you all, and the world, a little solution to throw-away plastic bottles. Almost anything can be Re-used, Recycled, or Repurposed nowadays. My most recent ‘brainstorm’ might be something you’ve already thought of, but if not…her ya go!

Because we live full-time in less than 200 square feet of space, I’ve had to come up with creative alternatives to storage, and had to rethink how I stock my pantry. If it isn’t square or rectangular in shape, it’s going to rob me of much-needed pantry space.

Just a Vagabond Family who chooses not to fit into societal measures. We strive to live a simple life, below our means....somewhere out there, preferably Off the Grid. Our lifestyle and the way we live has often labeled us 'Gypsies', which in-part was the inspiration behind Gypsy Vin Rose --our folk and gypsy-soul vocal duo. My husband Nico and I write, compose, and perform all original songs about our experiences out there on the in to Wanderlust. Hear us at When we're not writing new songs, I write books -- women's fiction, children's name it! My latest work is Monday...Super-Fun Day; which teaches the days of the week to young readers. It is my first (and most rewarding) effort at illustrating in watercolors, and my debut children's picture book. On Sale Now! Order your copy at, Barnes & Noble, or where ever quality books are sold. Follow links from my author page at At this writing, we are winding-down on the renovation and remodeling of our once-trashed-out vintage travel trailer we rescued from a deer lease, which is now our lovely island bungalow 'Mermaid Mansion'. It has been an on-going saga since day-one, but a learning experience none-the-less. We invite you to step into our lives as we try to learn from our failures as well as our successes. After all...the journey is always the best part. May you find your path in life, as we are always seeking to do. Blessings and .V.. (Peace) GVR
