Finally got it home
we haven't gotten the new rig on a trip yet, we head out Friday for a couple nights mostly. Not too far from home, but should be a decent trial, electric hookup, no sewer (dump station on site). My husband has practiced hitching up, driving, backing up and most importantly maneuvering back into our storage spot. He's doing great. I'm still getting used to the truck before I start driving on the road with a trailer. We sanitized our water system. Seemed like a lot of work for the one or 2 weekend trips we'll manage to do before winterizing, but if we want to really test out the trailer before next season we felt it was necessary.
We have been slowly sorting and cleaning our camping supplies that we had in our popup and transferring to the 5th wheel. Yesterday, I made a trip to the trailer storage to put in some more supplies when I made a great discovery that we totally missed on walk through and subsequent times looking over the trailer. I found MORE storage inside our U-dinette. We have drawers at the ends, but I had no idea the entire seating platforms lifted to have more storage at the back end and can even see into the drawers from the top. We moved cushions around a bunch of times during the walk through and our own personal cleaning and never noticed.
We are so used to the limited space and weight of a popup that we were already thrilled by the amount of storage we have in a 30ft trailer. I told my husband if we ever run out of space we are overpacking and overweight :-). Has me rethinking my storage configuration though. The back of the dinette is not the easiest to access, so I think our extra sleeping bags/bedding will get stored there.
