Samantha is the owner and renovator of this 1995 Lazy Daze RV, based on a Ford E-350 chassis. Even though she's owned this vehicle for the past three years, she's been living in it full-time for just the last three months.
The rig measures 23.5 feet (almost 7.2 meters) in length, and its odometer reads 84,000 miles (135,185 km). What's more, it's categorized as a Class C RV and sports a 460 V8 engine paired with an automatic transmission.
Samantha's RV is now for sale. She's asking $25,500 (€23,330) for it - it's up to you to decide if the price is worth it. It cost Samantha about $19,000 (€17,383) to bring it to its current state.
At the rear, Samantha installed a hitch to store her scooter, which she uses for shorter trips. You'll also notice a ladder leading up to the roof, where she fitted 400 W solar panels. They are connected to two 6 V lead-acid batteries and a 3,000 W inverter.
Moving inside, you'll discover a well-organized and well-equipped space – there are a total of 260 square feet (24 square meters) available. What I really like about this rig is that there are many windows all around it, so Samantha gets a very well-lit place during the day.
So, let me walk you through Samantha's setup. As you enter, you'll have the bathroom door straight ahead, right next to some tiny shelves. The bathroom is equipped with a shower, a window, and a toilet operated via a foot pedal, as well as a cute blue background behind it. A 40-gallon (151-liter) freshwater tank and a water heater allow you to enjoy a hot shower.
If you head deeper into the interior, you'll be in the kitchen, which is reasonably well-equipped. It features an oven with a three-burner stove, a vent hood, a microwave, a fridge/freezer, and a tiny sink mounted in the corner of the space. Another notable element is a 5-gallon (19-liter) jug with drinking water connected to a Dometic faucet.
Regarding storage, there are plenty of drawers and cabinets throughout the area, as well as enough counter space, including a flip-up table. A nice detail is that she has a window behind the kitchen, enabling her to take in the views while preparing a meal.
The area opposite the kitchen houses the fridge/freezer - by the way, both the fridge and oven run off a 10-gallon (38-liter) propane tank. A massive hanging closet occupies the rest of the area, complete with drawers underneath. It's safe to say that storage (of any kind) is not an issue in this rig.
Because Samantha travels solo, she created her ideal setup – she transformed one of the couches into a bed, while the other one, together with the table, serve as a desk area. This makes things easier, as she doesn't have to rearrange the space whenever she wants to set up the bed. If she were to transform both couches into a king-size bed, four people would fit on it.
All in all, Samantha did a great job with the renovation – it still has that retro vibe but comes with up-to-date utilities that make life on the road more comfortable. "Dazey" is currently for sale on Craigslist – you can find more information about it on its listing.
