Another feature that adds to the roomy look of the Silverback is the cathedral ceiling in the slide outs. Which begs this question. With cathedral ceilings in the trailer, do I still have to go to church every Sunday?

Maybe if you changed some of the windows to stained glass, you would be absolved???? The cathedral ceilings do add a nice visual roominess to the living area, you don't feel the need to duck.

In my opinion, the layout of your new camper is the best I've seen. It gives the most open space and as mentioned earlier, gives you the option of slouching on the sofa without stretching your neck to watch TV or sit in the lazy boys. You can get that layout in "lightweight" models as well, without, of course, the ability to carry bikes on the rear bumper.

Rugged Brown, your bike remark actually made me LOL.

The floor plan and features of the 29RL Silverback are exactly what we've been looking for in a fifth wheel, with the exception of length. I was hoping to stay at 30 feet or shorter.

Our "must haves" were;
A good kitchen area with counter space that had more than one electrical outlet. (for my wife)
Quick access to the toilet with the slides closed. (definitely for me)
Access to the fridge with the slides closed. (for both of us but mostly me)
2 Air conditioners in any fifth wheel over 32 feet in length. (for both of us)
Battery cut-off switch. (for me)
Decent size holding tanks. (for me)

It's all about me. Well mostly. It's rare that a gentleman would admit that. Or did your wife tell you to say that. Just out of curiosity, will you new rig be able to accommodate bikes on the rear bumper.

Now that is funny

My DW bought me a pool table for our 5th Wheel the week after we took delivery! I absolutely LOVE telling folks we have a pool table in the "basement"

A little the worse for wear after 3 years...

I think the worst part of trading in the old trailer and buying a new one is having to transfer all the “stuff” from one to the other. The only good part is that I usually find things were “lost.” It never ceases to amaze me that I can lose things in a trailer that is only 30 feet long.

That is why I made the "Where did I put That" Book.
And I still manage to lose stuff

If you lose it, you don't need it. That's why I travel light.
