New 5th Wheel

Who says you can't pick out your new camper in the dead of winter! Certainly not my husband! We have been wanting to make a few upgrades to the 5th wheel we currently had but I however didn't think winter was the most appropriate time to do it. Hubby had other thoughts! He found this 5th wheel on the dealer's website that we bought our last one from and he knew immediately this one was it and we had to have it. It is slightly larger than the one we had. The upgrades are a master bedroom slide, hookup for a washer and dryer (if you can imagine that) and table and chairs in the kitchen area. Oh and lets not forget the state of the art air mattress with its own pump in the couch bed! Woo Woo!

Here she is....

The kitchen area is the most important part of the camper to me. I must have room to cook and do dishes. Counter top area is a woman's best friend when camping in my opinion. Just look at these beautiful cherry cabinets that I will be able to fill up with all kinds of good camping food! The counter tops are just beautiful. Bull nose finish and its all one piece.

In the far corner of the kitchen, there is even a hidden trash compartment cut out of the counter that you can hide your garbage can in and empty it from the outside of the camper. The fridge has so much storage room. Another important part of the camper to me.

Here's an overview of the living/dining area. I just love the table and chairs. The cushions always fell down on the booth seats in our other trailer and I hated that. Of course we lost a bed for someone by making this change but I am fine with that. The colors are sage and tan. For some reason these pictures make the tan look very light. It is a bit darker than it appears.

Next we have my chaise lounge. I can see myself taking a nice nap on this bugger while hubby is out on a fishing trip or something less than exciting!

This view is looking up towards the nose of the camper to the master bedroom. Notice the nice flat screen. It came with the camper. My daughter thought that was the best part.

Look up, you get just a tiny glimpse of the ceiling fan. Yes I said ceiling fan. I have never seen a camper with a ceiling fan. I just thought that was a hoot!

Here is the master bed with the slide out. The mirrored closet is huge. This is also where your washer and dryer would go. Now trust me I won't be buying a set either. I have no problem running to the laundry facility to do our laundry. I meet so many nice people while doing laundry at the campgrounds. I'm not about to give that experience up.

We even have our own dresser in the bedroom. The counter tops are just beautiful. Very elegant looking.

Last but not least the bathroom. Full stand up shower and a porcelain toilet. No plastic throne in this camper. I feel like royalty!

Well I hope you enjoyed the tour. We will be heading to Tennessee and Myrtle Beach this summer for our yearly vacation. This year it will just be hubby and I and our teenage daughter. Our son is too busy with work to go. Pray for me! We will be taking another young teenage girl along with us. My daughter talked us into bringing a friend this year. I have a feeling this could get very interesting. Let's not forget that this friend is also a vegetarian. Wow cooking for a non meat eater for 2 1/2 weeks. Good thing she will eat seafood. That should help somewhat!

Take care and I hope everyone has a pleasant week ahead.



  1. Wow, she is pretty~looks very comfortable!Prayers for you~ goodluck! You will have a blast!

  2. WOW!!!!VERY NICE..I would love something like that for family vacations with the little ones!! Enjoy making memories with your family :)

  3. Now this would be my idea of camping! Very nice!

  4. That is one sweet camper, you will surely enjoy your summer!

    Our family loves to go camping too. We started in a tent, went to a pop-up and now have a tag-a-long, hubby won't take the cap off his truck for a 5th wheel hitch, LOL... Blessings, Traci

  5. it's gorgeous! wonderful!...this is something that hubs and I have always wanted...especially now with bedbugs everywhere in the hotels and motels!! LOL...what a lovely home away from home...congrats!


  6. Amy how nice is this. It's actually nicer than my home,lol. Have fun at Myrtle Beach. My mathers friends have been camping down there for years. William and Clementine Whitley. You never know if when you mention a name if maybe by chance you could have met them.But anyway i might just get down there myself since it's only a little over an hour to get there. You are so lucky. Blessings, janice

  7. Wow Amy, talk about a home away from home!! It is just lovely!! If I had had that to live in those five years in a camper while we built our house would have been a lot easier.8-) I'm so happy for you!!

  8. AWESOME!!! And I love the ceiling fan, talk about home comforts!
    We actually went last weekend and looked at upgrading our camper for one with slideouts. We are still thinking it over.
    Have fun this summer!!

  9. Very nice!! Some close friends of ours lived in their 5th wheel while their new house was being's like a home away from home!!

  10. Beautiful...I think your Hubby had the right idea. Winter is the best time to buy a motor home. I've gottn all my motor homes in the fall and winter when the prices drop.. I live in a motor home right now but not near as nice as this one...but I love it and as far as I'm concerned I could live in one the rest of my life and just have a huge work shop where I spend 95% of my time..
    May God Bless all your travels in your ne awy from home home!!


  11. I could live in that!
    Travel safe!

  12. Wow! Fancy! When I was a child, our family traveled to Lakewood Campgrounds in Myrtle Beach every summer. It was AWESOME . . . even though our trailer was no where near as cushy as yours!

  13. Wow, it is beautiful!! Love the sage and tan color combination. Sounds like a fun time will be had this summer! Enjoy that baby!

  14. Just gorgeous Amy!! I grew up camping and would love to get into it but hubby does not. Maybe he he had something this nice, he'd rethink it!

    I hope you use it in health for many years!

  15. Now this is what I call camping! I just love this!

  16. Now that is camping in style ;)

  17. Wow, Amy! Now that's the way I like to camp! I'm so thrilled for you! It's beautiful and I can see lots of memories in the making there!

    You'll have fun with two teenage girls....they'll keep you laughing I'm sure! :)


  18. Wow are you gonna have a good time in that beauty!

  19. Gorgeous 5th wheel. I'm hoping that we'll get one of these in a few years...I looove camping....but need all the comforts of home! :)


  20. You just got one of my husbands dreams! Yeahhhh for you. You are going to be so comfy with all these wondeful (beautiful) conveniences.

    Hugs, Karen
