First step, pick up the water trailer from storage, go load some water from the local water place (great guys, I tell you), then transport to the Vista. Here I am backing the trailer down one drive to pull up through the “other” drive where I park the trailer. Not not much in the background except the deck waiting for the home to arrive.
OK, all hooked up and ready to transport back up on top of the Vista. This home weighs approximately 14K, as it sits…lightened as much as possible. If you could see the hill I need to take it up with this 14-year-old 4×2 truck….but, I have already checked out one access road and it is pretty smooth, so we can get a nice run at it! (reminder to self…stop by the local KOA and use their dump station to clean the anti-freeze out of the lines…)
…..the trees on this side…….Easy does it….we can do this!Whew….just get lined up perfectly…..then the work starts….checking level, unhooking, raising the front just right to allow to get up level front to rear which has an appreciable difference in elevation…..almost there. It is a lot of work!
YEA! It is there, it is level, it is stable…… And, of course, now all the inside has to be cleaned up, gotten ready, put water in, check solar settings, etc etc etc I could put a hundred more pics of all it takes, but you get the ideas…wow, is it worth it?YES! It IS worth it! Have a great summer, everyone!
