R you ready Its the Red Neck Island Camper~11 Houses in 4 days~

A fine good Evening to all my Prims.......I hope you all had a great Day!
I've been missing in action well at least here in blogland....I was off to the Island...I'd love to tell you it was for fun...but not the case.....Its been a long hard week...11 houses in 4 days...One was a Total new construction what a total mess that was.. took 12 hours but I got r done and they were so happy they paid me double what I charged them, they hired me to come in once a month to clean and .. they cooked me steak dinner.. I must have made some kind of impression..there home is beautiful's the cool thing, the lady of the house has just discovered primitive Decor and actually had a whole wall of book shelves and cabinets done in primitive Black and heavily distressed...
When I met her the second day I said "So you're into Primitive?" She just looked at me and ask what I meant and I said your shelves are primitive. She said, I seen this style and fell in love with it so I took a picture to the cabinet maker and had him make them for me. she did her Kitchen in White French Cottage distressed cabinets and they are just fabulous..
So of course I gave her my card and my link to my Ebay store and said check out what I create... She did and said she may be very interested in having me create some things for her new house... small world we live in that fate should make our paths cross... 

Mother's Day was my busiest day..So I treated myself out to dinner after work it was yummy a huge Salad with tons of Fav..and Garlic Butter Wings ~ Strawberry Baja Rose to drink... I took myself home a happy lady...was going to watch a movie but fell alseep...Seems that feather down mattress on my camper bed was calling my name....

Which leads me to my Red Neck Camper Van you all wanted to see...
Now as I mentioned in an earlier post she's not much to look at but she serves my purpose well... 
 This is a 1987 Chevy Econoline Camper Van. I traveled back and forth from Port Clinton and Delaware alot and with all my critters it was easier for me to have a camper van to stay in then to try to drag all my critters into one of my relatives house for a few days here and there. Plus working on the island cleaning I needed a place to stay when the boat wasn't in the water. so I decided to find myself a used motor home that I could handle at a reasonable price.. I looked at probably 50 before I came across this one.. Seemed anyone selling there camper vans thought they owned a gold mine and wanted up to $30,000 for a simple camper van.. Way out of my price range..then I found my Red Neck Van for $1400.00 more my price..
When I seen the outside I was worried that it was really trashed but when I seen the mileage and the inside I said Sold..
It had some miner mechanical problems but we got them fixed and she makes it from point A to point B...and that was all I cared about...I've had it on the Island now for two years.
I seldom put the bed down but it makes into a Queen Sz bed ..its really comfy with my feather Tic on it..and as you can see Tasha loves it.
This is the top bunk turned into the Critter bedroom.. it suposed to be a pull out Queen Sized bed but I took out the mattreses, laid down carpet, added two cat beds, a liter box, Cat Feeder, Cat toys and Lucky Blues Cage.

This is a close up of Lucky Blue~ if you look real close you can see her damaged wing.

Tasha in the Critter bedroom...mama is alseep under the front seat so she didn't make this Photo Shoot!

This pic is looking back showing the Kitchen area with Fridge on the right at the end of the Sofa Bed and Bathroom is in the very back with a closet & where the Shower is I have a dresser sitting on top of a plywood cover I cut to fit over the tub & a potty of course in the middle. 
This is the Front seat turned around to make a living area chair... Puddles sleeps on the chair at night...
Tahsa & my kitchen area cabinets. So you see for $1400 not a bad Red neck Camper at all.. Just got to take it easy driving it, as it's very top heavy and tends to sway a bit to much...especially if it is windy out..scared me to death the first time I drove it on a windy day...

This is the view out my window for now...Soon We are moving the camper behind the garage so I will be next to the woods where all the wild critters, Deer, Bunny's, Snakes, Raccoons, and Birds run, fly and play in the woods...I'm gona love that... I watched Bunny's playing all morning on Saturday... and two Deer wondered by...
So there you have it My other home away from home...

Thanks for stopping by and visiting...hope your day is filled with sunshine and peaceful moments...



  1. What fantastic news, finding a new cleaning job and another source for selling your prim creations, wow, got to love it. I am sure there is a lot you can teach this person about our world of Prim and make some good "dough" besides, have fun. The "redneck" camper fits your needs perfectly, you are one smart lady, girlfriend. One of your wonderful "Creations" is coming my way, and it is going to the Colorado Cabin, thanks a bunch.

  2. Congrats on all the cleaning jobs! Always exciting to connect with someone who has your interests! LOVE your camper - how perfect - make me want one so I can run away once in a while! ~*~Lisa

  3. Looks very cozy Tonya and such a good deal. I would have bought it too, who cares if its a Redneck van. Great to hear from you. Get some rest you deserve it.


  4. LOL, I just love your redneck van!! All the furbabies look so cozy in there, even the bird:D Sounds like you've been a busy bee, but good that you found a new friend that loves primitives and just might be a new customer in more ways than one! Have a wonderful daY!!!!

  5. Your Redneck Van is wonderful Tonya!!

    Congrats on your new job/s and new prim customer!!!


  6. Tonya,
    Your camper looks real homey and cozy. Just right for traveling or hanging out anywhere. I need one of those for down in my woods just to get away from the chores and work.
    Glad you can take your pets with you. I would take my dog with me. Animals don't have to-do lists for me.
    Good to see things are looking up for you.
    Have a nice day.

  7. I love your redneck camper..and so happy they paid you for what you truly are worth and treated you so well..good work pays off..have a wonderful rest of your week.;)

  8. How I would love something like that and then we could go visiting more..It would be a little more crowded with my 2 big Pups and my 2 white hair girls but would work great and I would ask you for ideas on fixing it up..Our kitties are ferril and would leave them home with lots of food and water and extra littler boxes. What a great way to travel..Another thing on my want / need list.
    I think I finally have enough things to start putting some gatherings together and will show you pictures for ideas soon. Now that it is nice out I can work on them in the garage :)

  9. Hi Tonya,
    What a deal on that camper. I have a question... how do you keep the animals in the camper when its really hot out and your working?Doesn't it get super hot? Such an adventure you lead. Great about the double pay and new job!

  10. I love it! What a great way to get around!

  11. A little behind in blog land again ~ sorry.
