While I am not an rver yet(still studying what type of rig I need)I am a rubber stamper. If you have a large collection of wood mounted stamps as I do, then I was thinking that I will need to unmount them and put them in those albums they sell. At least that would cut down considerably on space AND weight. I hate to do it but not much choice I guess.

Hi Genny- I have thought of unmounting the stamps, but I think I can fit all of my stamps-mounted and unmounted, into those plastic shoe boxes,which in turn will sit by the side of my brand new cropper-hopper(got it today!!!) I have room in one of the lower cabinets to fit 8 of the shoe boxes.I can divide them by theme. I have collected stamps since 1975!!! What ever won't fit in the shoe boxes, will just have to go to storage for awhile, till we get the new house built in WY. At least some of them can go with me in the 5th wheel!! I'd go nuts if I didn't stamp every day!! Let me know when you decide to get your rv-maybe I will have some ideas for you!! Happy Trails!! Rvmule

I saw a guy in a campground that towed all his Tie dye stuff around in a small cargo trailer. However, if you are towing your rv already it presents quite a dilema. I think I would look at a hitch mounted platform and mount it to the back of the fifth wheel or trailer. Then I would look at one of those plastic storage garden shed things from a home store. The down side is that too much weight in the rear of the trailer will cause the rv to fishtail going down the road. Plan B might be storage boxes and the RV add a room off the awning or a set up dining fly. In either case, the difficult issue is keeping paper products in a cool dry environment. Boy oh boy you got me on that one. A whole room full of stuff would dominate the living space and cramp your lifestyle. Would it be possible to add work truck type cabinets to the pick up?

I have a friend who had this exact problem and she had to go to a motorhome instead of a 5th wheel and still had to unload 600 lbs of weight!
I want to take my photo's and put them on nice greetings cards. Genny do you know where I can order the see through sleeves you put the cards in?

Yes, I order them through Marcos Papers http://marcopaper.com/ They are very reliable. You usually see them at all the paper craft shows. If you join their e mail list they will give you 5% off. SOmetime in NOvemeber they give you free shipping and and 5% off which is a hugh deal when ordering heavy paper. They have the clear envelopes and clear jackets (works like a book cover) for various size cards. Call them...I do not like using their website...so you can make sure you get what you want. Their website is kinda difficult to navigate. Good luck.

I am a part timer with a outback tt and a teen. I also scrapbook. I recently started doing digital scrapbooking it is way cool and to me it's seems cheaper. I hope this helps you. val

Well hi! Glad you've joined us! Digital scrapbooking has certainly come a long way and you can do so many things with your pictures and the templates that various companies have created. I still do more of the "old-fashioned" scrapbooking, but hope to at least play around with digital at some point. As I'm sure you're aware, you can even have them printed out and bound into a hardcover book. They look downright professional!

The pop up tent I bought didn't really work that well. It was more of a screen room and wasn't waterproof. I still think a tent would work, but get a real one. I have, or had, since I've lost this rig, a big space under the bed where I stored my glass and scrapbooking stuff in tubs.

We have a love seat in the slide out of our 5er----- And under the love seat I can put two long plastic storage containers------ & in those two large storage containers I have my craft projects! Under our glider rocker is a place to also hide a plastic storage box- also more craft supplies! Behind our love seat we carry a large table that folds up that Hubby made- & I can sit it up inside or outside to work on my crafts------ We carry a screen room with us when we travel---& we sit it up close to the 5er & I put my craft table & supplies in it when I want to work & not have to fill up the 5er with my projects when I'm working on them! I can spread out & have more room to work & enjoy the outside with out totally being outside!! We also have a platform on the back of our 5er----& we carry huge storage boxes on it along with our 2 seater bike-------- & I have been known to use part of that storage with my crafts--------- Under our bed in our 5er------is all storage----- & a part of that is also used for my craft supplies! You may have to go through & select the most important supplies for you-------

I just saw that your last post was in 2007------& I have not seen you post since then------- This message was edited by Oliveoil on 4-22-08 @ 11:40 PM
