just ordered a 2809w jammer for April. looks like it should tow great and wonderful seating. wife was wondering we're to put a trash can in the kitchen. not a lot of cupboards. have a fifth wheel now and looking forward to getting my pickup bet back for carrying stuff.

Welcome! Others will probably be able to give more advice but I'll give it a swing. The wife and I are full timing in a 2013 Grey Wolf 28BH and we've learned a thing or two about space. We have a small 3 gal trash can we got from Wal Mart. It fills up quick but with just the two of us I only have to empty it once a day. We immediately bought a rolling kitchen cart with a stainless steel top. This added extra counter space and storage in the kitchen. It also doubles as extra table space next to the dinette table. I've removed some of the dividers under my kitchen sink because there's a lot of space under there that FR decided to block off. I removed the pump service panel under my bathroom sink and opened plenty of storage space around the pump. I secured the the wiring and plumbing for the pump just to be sure we don't loosen a wire or kink a hose. I installed a screw-in stainless steel closet rod across the back in front of the bathroom to hang clothes and wet towels on to dry. We also turned the back bunks into cubbies since its just the two of us. Good luck!

Hi there! Congrats on ordering the 2809w jammer too. I'm sure you will have many more good times in the new RV as you have with the 5er.

Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...

Picked up the new rig sat yahoo. We've settled in and everything works fine always a few mods though. Seems well made and not as slammed together as my folks Sierra was. Here are a few pics. Gotta love phone pics!
