It's BIGGER than a bread box...

okay, so I don't feel like I mislead anyone by saying I have something BIG to tell you about...because what I'm telling you is big! I also said out wtih the old and in with the new. For those that know me, know my living arrangements. We live in an RV on the road most of the time with my dh's job. Last year we got a 30ft Holiday Rambler tow behind travel trailer with one slide out. Here's what our home away from home looks like (well actually this is what it looked like before we moved in. LOL, clean and no clutter)I love my RV...but living in an RV can get a little tight, especially when homeschooling! Yes, we actually live in it! We were just in SC for 4 months living in it. We actually had another one (similar to this-that we lived in for a year)

Recently my dh got a new truck...big enough to pull a bigger RV...and when I mentioned it to him, in passing, not really serious, he just said yeah, we could do that someday. The other day dh called me and said, "I want you to come look at something. I'll be home in a few minutes."

I asked, "Is it a new RV?" "Yes, but before you say anything I want you to just look."

We looked at the one dh wanted to show me along with some others. Dh thinks we need more room to be comfortable and he would like another bathroom...(He doesn't like to be cramped...I think because when he was growing up he lived in a shot gun house with two bedrooms and one bathroom and he had 5 sisters. He got a small front room that was cold and drafty in the winter and hot and sticky in the summer. I think the room was the size of a walk in closet. It was small)

Anyhow after looking, and talking price...we are now the proud new owners of this:

By the way this is the one dh wanted to show me only a different color. (He showed me one in green, I prefer this color and so it's on order now...we should have it in a month or so)

This is a Montana Mountaineer 2009 model, 5th wheel. It has two bathrooms, 4 slideouts, and 4 bunks! A real, full size closet in the master bedroom! Lots of storage!!! and if we want (which we decided not to) we could have a washer/dryer combo inside next to the master closet! No more boxes on the extra bunk to hold clothes or dvd's. No more cramping our clothes in and they hit the bottom of the dinky side bed closet space! No more hollering to the kids (where everyone in the rv park can hear) "Please bring me some toliet paper!!!" Because there is no room under the sink for it...no, this one has a shelf above the toliet to put stuff like that! It's the little things in an rv that make a huge difference! :P This also will be a real plus when we sell our house and find some property to build on. We can just live in this while building. Now when we travel from sea to sea, we'll have lots of room. Oh and it even has a stove outside with two burners...so if I'm in your neck of the woods, come on over for dinner!!!! (and I really mean that!!!)
Blessings until next time! (oh and aren't you glad I surprised you? :P)

Oh that is absolutely fabulous! And SOOO needed!! We looked at a bunch of fifth wheels while we were out on the road. If the Lord had us in that place still today, we'd have one too.

I'm happy for you.
God bless...
