Congrats on this new chapter. We think we will do the same in the future. We also installed the theater seating from Lambright and love it.

Very nicely optioned! You're going to fall in love with the convenience of traveling this way.

This is eciting & I am happy for you both. My questionis : where wull you eat if you remove the banquettes & table to add in lounge chairs?

I enjoyed the tour! Thanks for sharing. Only keep the things which bring you joy 😀 Happy continued adventures, Howard and Linda!

I have a 27’ Minnie with even less kitchen counter space, but it does have a pop up / fold down shelf on the end (in front of the door well). You could easily add one to give Linda more prep space. I use mine quite often.

Wow, what a nice rig! I loved my skylight in my WinnieView— especially on cold sunny days. It really warmed up the rig nicely. As for kitchen, Linda may need to do some new purchases to get smaller, lighter, multi-functional appliances and cookware. Fortunately, InstantPot now has a mini version of their 6 qt which might work well. Si ve I used to boondocks a lot, I decided to trade my InstantPot for a 4 qt Fagor pressure cooker, and bought a glass topped lid to go with it, so I could use it as a pasta/soup cooker in addition to a rice cooker and pressure cooker. Worked great— no electric required! A set of nesting stainless steel pots and pans was also a great purchase, and one medium sized wok pan (using the glass lid above) also served as my skillet, wok, and multi-function pan. Gotta be creative! Congrats on the new rig— you’ll have a blast!

We often eat in our recliners now. But we can get the theater seating with tray attachments. And, we can always eat at a table outside.

It's a beauty and we wish you many happy miles of fun and adventure. Definitely has great storage for a smaller unit. We only see one problem with the layout...During March Madness, how will Linda prepare meals while you watch the games?? ;-))

I can see this switch to a class C being very beneficial to readers who may be downsizing. Opens up a lot of new doors for educating.

I'll enjoy reading about the next part of your journey.

Hi Howard. I have a question on the propane. If there are no removable propane tanks to fill up how do you refill? Do you have to take the RV to a special place that fills on board tanks. Is that procedure the same as removable tanks. Asking for myself if I had a class B. If I was boondocking how hard is to get propane?

Howard & Linda, congratulations. How funny - this is the exact rig I'd been considering for the last 1 1/2 years, and now you got this and I decided on a truck and trailer :) My new Lance 4-season trailer will be ready in mid-May and I'm going to try to hit the road. Wish I wouldn't have had to miss so much of your educ rally last year - I'd be lying if I didn't say I was a bit nervous :( Wish me luck and good luck to you! - Charmaine

I love it! Thank you for the tour. I could be quite happy in that size rig. I would be interested in the future to hear what Linda chooses to keep in the kitchen and how she sets it up. I think like you I would enjoy the switch to the theater seating. Enjoy!!

I cook quite a bit and when we were in a smaller trailer I constantly used my dinette table for prep work due to the limited counter space. I would have never been able to trade it for a recliner. I am a messy cook, though. I love your new purchase. Looks as if the previous owners took very good care of it.

Looks like a really nice layout for a rig of that size. I especially like that you have the walk around bed and a corner shower too. Swapping out the dinette to theater seatings will be a great Improvement. Also moving the TV up over the door if it fits would be a nice alternative. We did sacrifice our drawers underneath our stovetop to make space for a complete oven. But that's because we Boondock a lot and use our oven a lot. So much better than the convection micro and having to run the generator to operate it. Have fun and enjoy your new digs!!!

Great storage! What are the weight stats on this rig? Is it on the usual E450 chassis?
