    The RV has a transforming space; living room, bedroom, dining room. But it has the neatest window AC install I have seen on a class C RV. Instead of the majority of the AC sticking outside, it is pulled into a cabinet in the living room. I was amazed at the space between the fridge and the kitchen cabinet. That is a lot for a 21 ft RV.

    Hi Gary,

    Thanks for the comments. We really tried to make the space as economical as possible. The A/C install was tricky but looks good and works well. The area that is sits in is lined with aluminum to catch the condensation from the compressor. The bottom piece of molding flips down so I can access the space beneath the unit. That way I can soak up any water when the humidity is high. We are so glad you like our home! Jesse and Mike –The Ukulele Cowboy Society

    What a fun place to live in! Their talent is far more than musical. Love this space!

    At first glance, I hated this!!! Then I watched the video. These two have totally transformed an old eyesore into something that reflects their personalities and tastes. I love it! I could totally live there full time.
