Long trip=camper wish list

In the middle of our fist long trip(long trip defined as 10+ days) I have come to the realization we need the following in our next camper:

Outdoor Kitchen
Larger bathroom
Larger holding tanks
More storage
Separate room for the kids
Larger fridge
More power outlets
A new cummins dodge!

35 to 38 footer should do it.

I understand your logic.

Yeah...if the RV Bug has bitten you bad, just skip the 3/4T and get the 1T Dually Diesel (and with kids, maybe opt for a Mega-Cab.)

FR has some really nice Bunkhouse models as well

Maybe you should go back to doing short trips... I hear the RV bug rarely tags along to those...

Like mine there are 5th wheels out there that have two separate black tanks and a bunkhouse. Double the pleasure! Separate the kids and extra holdings....
