Full timer/linewife

How's it going? We've been traveling full timers since June 2013. We've got 3 kids, 2 are twins. We travel full time for my husbands job. He works on powerlines. Anywho, we just switched from a 32ft Puma travel trailer to a 43ft Sierra 5th wheel. Absolutely love our new trailer!

Your not that far from home then.

SLC is always in a rebuild or construction phase, every time I have been there they are doing something.

Boise is almost as bad that way...

Which model of Sierra did you purchase? We recently moved up to a Sierra 378FB and really enjoy the room.

The state line is the limit, unless they annex the corner of WY...

Hi Shelby,
I have the same unit. I have been full timing since md-July. I, like you, love the large living room. I am still trying to figure out the pantry and storage issues... guess it takes time to adjust from a house to an RV.


I am so amazed and delighted with your family. I cannot imagine moving this 43-footer. Good for you!
