Goodbye Travel Trailer, Hello 5th Wheel!

On March 14, (Cello’s birthday!) we traded said goodbye to our travel trailer, and bought a new 5th Wheel!

We are away so often at dock diving events, that we decided to upgrade our GLAMping to incorporate a 2014 Grand Design Solitude 369rl – and we LOVE it!

Bye Bye, travel trailer!  We brought our 2013 Jayco White Hawk home to unload it.  We will miss this camper, and all the great memories it brought to us!

All pictures were taken with my phone the day we looked at the 5th Wheel and decided to buy it.

This is our new 2014 Grand Design Solitude 369rl.  It is 39 feet long! unnamed (5)

Lots more counter space also…unnamed (23)

I love the floor plan, and the roomy feel the island gives to the kitchen area.unnamed (18)

A pantry and fireplace… two things we didn’t have in our travel trailer – but are LOVING in this camper! unnamed (19)

Love our bathroom sink! unnamed (11)

This shower is MUCH bigger than our old one! (Pink stuff is the antifreeze since it was still winterized when we looked at it)

We love our new camper!

 Here we are taking a break from setting up and unpacking at the storage lot:

Our camping sign from last year displayed a travel trailer and only a “Cello” dog bone – – so a new camping sign to include our 5th wheel and Hooch was in order!

We didn’t waste any time – we immediately booked at trip to  Elk Neck State Park.  Brian, Jenny, and Hooch have been there before – but this was Hooch’s first time there!
