DriveBy Tourists: RV Outfitting, Mods, Upgrades and Fixes
Welcome to our RV page. This section is all about our Thor Tiburon 24RW motorhome on the new, version 3 Mercedes Sprinter chassis.
Here, we discuss the RV and everything that goes into the thing that is our house, our lifestyle and our transportation as we trek around the country.
There is so much that goes in to outfitting and maintaining both the house and the van side of things. We’ve broken everything up in to a few sections:
We did not skimp here. On this page, we broke down every category from Water, to Electrical to Patio, to Emergency to Toys, tools and much more.
Since we full-time in a Sprinter Class C, space is at a huge premium. There is a constant conflict between having everything we need in our life on a daily basis on one side, and the space needed and the weight requirements on the other.
To that end we have sought out items that can serve double duty; items that are sturdy and will stand up to constant packing, unpacking, travel and daily use; as well as items that are light weight.
Take a look. We provide an explanation and rationale for each item. In addition, we provide a link to the item on Amazon or and other vendors so you can buy the same product.
Our hope is that our research and trial-and-error helps you from spending money on something that isn’t worth the time and effort.
Hacks. DIY. Upgrades. Mods. Whatever you want to call it, this is where it lives. If the items that came with the RV at purchase wasn’t up to snuff and we replace it, then we’ll cover it here. You’ll find out about inverter upgrades, additions to the water system, how we created a wifi network on board, etc.
