For several years, Clinton and I searched and searched for the perfect RV! Shopping for RVs can be a lot of fun. If you go in enough of them, you get a good sense of what you're looking for. With our son in college and not able to camp with us much, we were looking for a smaller fifth wheel that had room for him in case he could go with us but didn't take up valuable living space for sleeping arrangements we didn't need very often.
We found the perfect first time RV for us! It is was a Forest River Rockwood Signature Ultra Lite. It was 31 feet long, so it wasn't massive but big enough to give us lots of features we didn't have in our pop-up camper. One of my favorite features of this RV has been the kitchen. I've heard a lot of people say they don't cook in their RV. I do my fair share of cooking outside but with this RV, I've had the space to prep, cook, and serve from inside. I also love the living space with the sofa, regular dining set, and recliners.
We really thought we would keep this RV forever. However just two short years later we are looking at going on a coast-to-coast camping trip. We could definitely do that with our current set-up but we would like to downsize in order to afford this adventure. So we are going to try to sell our RV ourselves. It has been a time-consuming process. I will share more later about the specifics. For now, enjoy the first video we have ever created - and subscribe to our Youtube channel while you're there!
