We upgraded in October 2016 to a fifth wheel. Before this, we had a KZ Spree travel trailer. Although we loved it, it was lacking in a few areas. For one thing, to get to the bathroom, the slide had to be put out. Not very convenient when traveling. Secondly, it was 32′ but didn’t have a lot of living area. Now in the summer, we’re never inside, but last year we tried winter camping and enjoyed spending some cold days inside. Also, we had company a few times and we ended up indoors during bad weather and it was crowded. Lastly, being a rear bathroom design with a slide on the campsite side, there weren’t enough windows. The only windows I had were looking onto a neighboring campsite. So, our new fifth wheel has everything we could possibly want and more!
The inside features a large living area with recliners, a fireplace, many cupboards for storage and lots of windows facing the campsite side. The bathroom is quite a bit smaller than in our Spree, but the shower is still very large. Our bedroom has a comfy king bed in the slide and a large closet across the front. I doubt we’ll ever use the washer hookup and I’m not sure how much we’ll use the second AC in the bedroom.
I think one of the best upgrades to the fifth wheel is the better quality of insulation in the roof, walls, slides and floor. I checked the specs out for the Durango and it’s one of the best! This was important to us since we’ve decided to continue to winter camp. We noticed a big difference this year winter camping with the Durango. Much warmer but a larger area to heat so we did use more propane.
We’re looking forward to making many new wonderful memories in our new fifth wheel. Hopefully we’ll see you on the road and share a campfire! ☺
