Since we came home after our Nevada, Utah, Wyoming, Montana, and Idaho tour last summer. We have been busy building a garage for our Leisure Travel Van. The Arizona sun and summer monsoon storms have done a lot of damage to our van in the last 4 and half years. So we decided it was time to do something about that to protect our investment.
It took us six months just to get a building permit. Apparently Santa Cruz County here in southern Arizona dosen’t like giving building permits for RV garages. Living down here on the boarder with Mexico, some people will build an RV garage and use it to smuggle undocumented immigrants into the U.S.
We requested a building permit in July 2021 and it didn’t get approved until January 2022. While we waited for the permit, our contractor started fixing the drainage/erosion problems we had on our property in preparation for the eventual garage.
Our Leisure Travel Van will have a new home that’s 25 feet wide, 40 feet deep and a door with a 12 foot clearance. Come along and watch the progression of our garage project.
We are currently planing another road trip this summer. We will be leading a tour of twelve other Leisure Travel Vans and their owners through Idaho. After that we plan to continue our summer adventures in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Hope you will join us as we continue the next chapter of our lives…
