The castle is a custom built RV Trailer/Tiny Home. I designed the castle approximately 8 years ago while traveling full-time and selling jewelry at medieval and renaissance events. Thus the castle was designed to be a merchant booth and home as well. The castle features two large windows which fold open to provide a selling counter. The “front” of the booth is the right side of the trailer, and has two removable “battlements” which attach with three flag poles to complete the castle facade. The interior of the castle is finished with fabric, and has a large kitchen area with a two burner stove and tons of counter space. The interior design features a large walk-in closet with two dressers, and a loft bed area above. The roof is white EDPM and has two decent size solar panels which charge 4 batteries which are stored underneath the trailer. The solar system is currently setup running and can power both 12volt and 110 lighting, as well as small appliances. The interior also has a large fabric covered bench which opens for additional storage.
- 12Volt solar system (approx 300 Watt – 2 panels, 4 batteries)
- Fabric covered interior
- Castle facade
- Large kitchen counter with two burner stove and lots of storage
- Bench seat with storage
- Fold our computer/laptop desk
- Heavy duty storage drawers in central location
- Walk-in closet with full length mirror, two dressers, and lots of hanger room
- Loft bed area, large enough for queen sized bed
- Cherry wood flooring
- Propane tank storage in front compartment
- High capacity jacks on all four corners for easy leveling You might be wondering why I am selling it, as it is obviously a wonderful small home/rv. The answer is mildly complex, but comes down to the fact that I’m not really using it, and have only been using it for 1 event a year for the past 4 years. It really needs to see more usage than this, and needs some upkeep/TLC to keep it in happy working order, and rather than just letting it deteriorate in my driveway for another 5-10 years before I’m likely to use it again I’d rather see it go to a happy home that will give it the love it needs.
The castle is currently located in Tucson Arizona, and I would prefer not to deliver it. This is a heavy/large RV and will require a full-sized truck to tow it, and a diesel makes it easier.

This summer I spent an entire month studying doumbek with Raquy Danziger, it was very a transformative experience. Raquy used to live in New York, but now lives in Istanbul where she can study split hand technique, and then she comes back to NY several times a year to teach. Study at the retreat focuses on learning Raquy’s compositions, but we also work on technique, clarity, timing, and speed.
Raquy structures the retreat around her normal study practices, starting each day with meditation in the morning, having group classes to work on a piece or technique a couple times a day, vegetarian meals throughout the day, and yoga in the evening. In between times are used for personal practice or practice with other students to work on sections of the compositions. During the evenings there are usually jams, or additional study, but there is also time to take a break go on a nature walk, enjoy the fireflies, play badmitten or ping pong, and enjoy the experience.
Those of us there for the month all learned two pieces, “Shame on You” by Raquy and “Drum Line” by Leron Peled. Both pieces have their own challenges and are quite intricate. The pieces really push you to learn new techniques and polish your playing style, as you want to really learn the pieces well and perform them each weekend. We also learned backing drums for “Dance of the Witches” which is a track on Raquy’s forthcoming album, and a piece played by an amazing Oud player named Hiagg Minutian (sp?). And we had jams throughout the month with amazing musicians like Carmine Guida, and we also had an great workshop with Glenn Velez who is incredible on the frame drum and other percussion. I can’t really speak highly enough about this event, it was very worth while if you are serious about doumbek and interested in split hand technique at any level.
