It's Show and Tell Friday!
To join Cindy's My Romantic Home we must post about something from our home or garden. Well, since we are traveling to Alaska we are away from our home base. However, our RV is our "home" while we are on the road so I thought I would show you what the interior of our "home away from home" looks like in the above mosaic.
We travel in what is called a 5th wheel travel trailer which is towed by our Ford F350 pick up truck. Our RV is a Hitchhiker Discover America 33 feet long with three slides. It is quite roomy once the three slides are out - one in the bedroom, one in the dinette and another for the small sofa. The RV is like a suite in a classy hotel complete with microwave, oven, refrig, pantry, dinette, two comfortable recliners, a small sofa bed, full bath with shower, A/C, heat, central vacum, queen size bed and two HD TVs (one with surround sound).
It takes about an hour to set it up and about two hours to break it down (I'm always slower in the mornings). We have to unhitch or hitch the truck depending on if we are arriving or leaving a campground and then hook up or unhook the electric, water and/or sewer and cable TV (if available). Then we raise or lower the front end to level it. Once everything is done outside we extend the room slides and put out things that were put away for traveling. We couldn't be more comfortable on the road. This isn't "camping" it's Rving and we love it.
(here) for more Show and Tell Friday. Hope you enjoyed the tour of our traveling "home".
