We have decided that since we are living in our RV it needs to be bigger! We are carefully weighing all of our options especially since our truck is only capable of hauling a trailer that weighs in at 10,500lbs so 5th wheel trailers can be limited for us. We have managed to find two that will work and both are fairly simular when it comes to weight, floor plan and price. One is a 2012 Wind River $26,900 and the second one is a 2011 Durango $24,900 there isn’t much difference between the two other then a few hundred pounds and the Wind River has better shocks. Both come with a four year warranty and both only have the one slideout it’s a tough call on which one we’ll be calling home!
Okay it’s official we have decided after looking at both 5th wheels again the Durango is the way to go!
Turns out the Wind River doesn’t have the closet space, counter space or the same amount of cupboards and the Durango even had a larger bedroom. We stopped by this morning to get all the financing started, so hopefully by the middle of the week it’ll all come together.
The deal wasn’t ment to be seems it fell through a crack in the road.
If your thinking of living in a RV make sure you’ll have the room for everybody including your fur babies, that’s what our problem is there just isn’t enough room for the two of us plus the 100 lb plus dogs we have and quite frankly it’s just not fair to them. Make sure your prepared to live in a much smaller place then your used too, I get a little claustrophobic at times and can actually see the walls closing in on me. Makes me wonder at times did we make the right decision is there a transition period and if so how long does it take for everyone to adjust? I realize this way of life isn’t for everyone and maybe we just started to late in life!
This week we are parked in an industrial area of Langley along side the road, I suppose the only good thing about that is its free, still makes me wonder though how others living in their RV’S do it or even worst the people that live in their cars, vans and trucks that can’t be easy! I’m thankful for having a roof over my head with at the very least a full kitchen to use rain or shine although I should mention it sure is boring without electricity for the TV or wifi for the iPad, time for us to research satellites, not that it would be much help here on the roadside.
Should we go back to the conventional way of living, that’s the question I ask myself everyday!
The thing I keep trying to remind myself we are only into the third week so it’s best I play this out until at least the end of August, who knows maybe it does get easier with time once we sort out what works best for us!
