Thank you so much for all of your input.
It's getting easier and easier to wrap my brain around how all this is going to work.
Put down sheets and towels (although part of me wants to use saran wrap, so I can be a stereotypical Italian with plastic on the furniture), close the door, Armour All wipes, paint brush (brilliant, reminded me that I used to use those to detail cars when I was younger)....much less worried about it all now.
As much as I'd love to buy an RV (because currently, I live in a tent for close to a month in the summer), it's a bit impractical for me. For one thing, my fiance is just getting into Real Estate this year...with a commission based income, things are going to be a little tight for a while.
In addition to that, I live in Canada. Our economy didn't take as much of a nosedive, and prices on used vehicles etc have remained pretty much the same up here.
And the thought of buying an RV in the US, and having to through whatever I'd have to do to get it over the border after a crazy week in the desert is really unappealing. Also wouldn't have time to get it worked on and ready to go.
One day, though...
