This picture was taken on June 3, 2006, one hour into the first trip of our retirement, the trip to Alaska with two grandsons in tow. This was our 35 foot 5th wheel which we pulled with a big truck.
We have sold that RV because if we're not living in it full time, we do not need such a big rig. Our trips now will be only weekends or short vacation type trips. So we traded in the RV and bought a small camper. This one is less than half the other one.......not even 15 feet inside from door to back wall. But we think it has everything we need. Plus we took our stained glass window out of the big rig and transferred it to the small one. Doesn't it look good?
I took this next picture while I was standing on the step outside the door. First of all is the frig, then the stove, then the sink. In back is the U shaped seating area around the small table. The benches make into two single beds, with room in between for a grandkid or two on the floor.
As long as I have my bed up off the ground, my indoor potty, and a stove to make my morning coffee, I have all I need. Besides, we can pull this little one with our van, the big RV needed a truck filled with diesel fuel.
