My Yamaha P-105 keyboard, and my camper. Playing piano outside! I use headphones so I don't disturb anyone with my banging. It's actually pretty rare for the weather to be in that "Goldilocks" zone so I can do this. Usually when camping I am playing inside. When it's not being used the piano is kept in a soft case and stored in the shower or on top of the bed.

I also take it with me when driving somewhere and staying in a motel. Works pretty good for a keyboard. Nothing fancy, just the basics. My home piano is a Yamaha C3.

Nice, I take a Roland along when we go camping. we have a teardrop so I keep it in the back of the car and set it up on tables. I really appreciate the distractions of playing outside, when I get back to my piano at home, it feels like a different universe.

Looks like fun, Sam! Outside in the fresh air, playing some of your favorite pieces!

You have the best of both piano worlds, my friend, both inside and out! smile

Enjoy your vacation!

I sent this to my piano teacher. He now does all his teaching online and has been trying to figure out a good setup to travel while he's teaching. This would be perfect.

Exactly!

Your set up outside could make a great Yamaha keyboard and acoustic piano commercial. Your C3 at home and your P-105 when RV’ ing.

Is it me, or am I seeing lots of “going RVing” commercials lately? The perfect distraction after a pandemic. Seeing Sam’s setup, that could really be a great getaway.

One of the attractions of the camper/RV is that you have your own bedroom, kitchen, and bathroom.

I almost never use the speakers on the keyboard. I could have saved on weight and gotten something with no speakers I guess.
