Last weekend we went to buy our new to us camper! This past spring we decided to change our style of camping. The motorhome was great and we had a lot of fun in it, but we decided we needed to go a little bigger so all of the family would fit easier. We decided we wanted to go with a camper instead of a motorhome. A 5th wheel camper will be great because we can pull doubles (atv trailer or boat) and the amount of space that is added both inside and outside would be wonderful. It's going to be AWESOME! I will miss being able to get up and go get a snack or drink whenever I want when we're going down the road, but I'll get used to planning ahead and packing a cooler before we leave.
Here is the pictures and story of our adventure from last weekend:
I was very excited to go on this adventure! We haven't been doing much outdoors this summer because we've been in transition mode and getting stuff done around the house.
For some reason I find runaway truck ramps fascinating. When I was a kid and we'd go on mountain drives, I would get excited when I saw the signs saying they were coming up. On this trip, I discovered I still get excited about watching for the ramps!
I have waited all summer to see this:
I pointed out that there was a sign saying we needed to pull over and go camping, but my husband said that's not what that sign was really saying. Since we didn't have any bedding, cooking utensils, food or water, change of clothing or our dogs I decided he was right.
One of our favorite features is that it has a back door! When the slide is in, you can't get from the bedroom to the "main" door so having a "back" door is a safety feature, but also a REALLY handy feature.
Getting out on this adventure recharged me a little and helped me come up with some more blog posts. We will also be sharing some "How We Did Some RV Modification Posts" for both inside and outside.
