Here it is, the space we’ll call home for roughly the next seven weeks. It’s a nice rig and a comfortable home to be pulling along with us. The only uncomfortable part will be paying for the fuel! That is going to hurt.
For those who are interested in the specifics. The RV is a 38′ 2013 Yellowstone “Canyon Trail”. It weighs in at just over seven tons empty and closer to eight tons loaded. It’s a bunkhouse layout providing two sets of bunks in the back. A master bedroom is at the front in the over the bed section. There are two bathrooms at opposite ends of the rig and a decent shower in the front bath. It has four slide-outs in all which makes the inside space very roomy.
The central portion of the RV offers a full kitchen including all appliances (except a dishwasher, an oversight that’s been noted by some family members). There’s a widescreen tv with a full entertainment system and sound piped throughout the RV as well as some exterior speakers. A love seat which folds out to a bed sits next to a dining table which seats four. In all, we can comfortably sleep eight people.
The tow vehicle is a 2006 Ford F-350 diesel dually. It seats all of us comfortably and pulls the weight of this RV with ease. Although I have a feeling there will be some mountain passes in our future that may put it to a test.
So needless to say we won’t be “roughing it” in this rig.
