Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals
I'm not a full time RV show liver. However I've done it for about 3 months at a clip. I used a Class C, 33' Winnie.
Now I'm considering buying a Class C toy hauler to use for much greater time.
I would make the "toy" section into my workshop and show setup. Then live in the rest, while on the road. Might carry my motorcycle on the back for extra travel freedom.
I would want a much smaller version. Maybe a 24' if they make one like that.
The reasons I desire the smaller size Toy Hauler:
B) Fuel economy - not that any of them are economical.
C) I'm alone so I don't need much extra room for living quarters.
D) Easier to maneuver.
F) I have found when checking into a trailer park, they don't always have a space available for the larger units but a small one can go anywhere.
I'm an old school back pack / primitive camper. I can live just fine out of a tent. For the show circuit it is a bit better to be able to shower, cleanup and cook, quick and easier. Therefore the RV.
Having the portable work shop is great. I can carry less inventory and adapt while on the road. Being able to drop the back or side down to just roll my show stuff out is great... easier on my bad back. Large opening makes it easier to pack.
I think the Class C is a good type as it allows for more efficient room use, over the driving area, thereby reducing the overall length requirements.
I have the portable purifiers, for camping. Also a Steri-Pen, great little device. Purifies via Ultraviolet light. I can grab water from most any source and feel fine. I don't use the bottled water as I don't want to promote the use of plastic bottles. I care about the environment, just not enough to bicycle to the shows, pulling a trailer.
I was more concerned if you have found the naysayers to be correct about not drinking the tap water, in the RV. I have even had sales reps at the RV dealership tell me not to drink the water.
I'd like to be lazy and not have to engage all the filtering. Otherwise where does it end. Do I filter the water I wash my dishes with? Washing hands... I might put my finger in my mouth (although usually it is my foot)?
Hmmm, I wonder if I drink it, will it affect me strangely? Will it affect my mind? Will I start thinking weird? Perhaps try to become an artist? :-)
