We Bought a Fifth Wheel!!
About a month ago, we went to an RV dealer in Michigan just to look at trailers and entertain the idea of possibly getting one to live in full time.
We’ve been doing seasonal work the last few years (ski resorts, national parks, etc.), which involves not only moving often, but finding housing at numerous unique locations. This was easy when there was just the two of us; since many places have employee housing, but now that we have Solomon, employee housing isn’t normally an option. So this was not only a dream for us, but also a solution to our “problem”.
We were set on a travel trailer and only planned to look at travel trailers. However, the salesman showed us the inside of one fifth wheel, just to give us an idea of the layout with a rear kitchen.
We left, thinking we would look other places and get a better idea of what was out there…however, we couldn’t get over that rear kitchen! It had more counter space then our apartment, and more than double the counter space of any other trailer we had seen! We looked online and searched other places inventory for a trailer with a rear kitchen and came up with nothing. So, the following Monday, we went and bought it.
We didn’t have a truck to tow it, nor did we really know anything about fifth wheels. But we were in love with our new kitchen and soon to be home!
