Ok. We are officially Glampers!
After a couple of years of saving and dreaming we got our first RV!! A 25 foot travel trailer with a slide-out. To say I am excited is a major understatement. Our search has been going on for years researching online but until this year we never actively looked. This week we found the right unit for us.
Our “Must-Have” list included the following:
We put aside a full day to drive out to an RV dealer who had a great selection of used inventory with a short list of 10 units that met all or most of our criteria and budget. Well wouldn’t you know that we ended up looking at almost ALL of them. On one of the coldest days of the year to boot!
One stood out from the bunch. It had almost everything we were looking for, large awning, bathtub, couch and a slide out. We were only missing the bunkbeds which we determined wouldn’t be a deal breaker for us as the kids are still really small. Maybe in a few years we would need an upgrade, but for now a pullout couch and convertible dinette would fit them just fine.
After some discussion and a good look over everything, we did it! We signed on the dotted line! Here is a sneak peak of our home away from home on wheels.
Isn’t the fabric pattern to die for?! I guess on the bright side, no matter what the kids spill on the fabric, you will never see it.
We will have to get creative with some storage solutions and stock the entire trailer but with some craftiness and handy work, I know we are going to be ready for a full season of getting outside and exploring our local area and beyond. Without having to sleep on the ground!
Once upon a time, I was quite the camper. Hiked the Zion Narrows, walked in one side and then out the other side of Bryce Canyon, explored the Grand Canyon and spent countess trips in camping and hiking in Algonquin Park. But fast forward 10 years, 2 kids and a puppy, I need to sleep in a queen bed with a nice duvet at the very LEAST!
Next up, stocking the trailer for our first camping season! Four Season Family is hitting the road!
