Several people have asked us are we taking our rv with slides to Alaska. The answer is a resounding NO! We bought a 19' rv (inside dimensions) 24 ft (overall outside dimensions tongue to bumper) with no slides. You walk in and to the right is a queen size bed. To the left is the kitchen and dinette (dinette could be a bed...if you are really short!). The only inside door is past the dinette and is at the rear of trailer and that is where the bathroom is located.
The bathroom is great. Glass shower! Why would that be exciting? If you've ever had the pleasure of taking a shower that had plastic curtains in an rv, when you turn on the water, magic happens! The flow of the water attracts the curtain to any flesh you have uncovered and in a shower that should be everything. It is so sneaky. Turn on the water and in an instant you are covered in cold plastic. Never mind that you haven't gotten the water mixed to the right ratio of hot and cold. It is all cold. Now you are covered by cold and wet plastic. It fits like a wet suit and is difficult to remove. If you are lucky enough to have your spouse nearby to get this monster off you, great. If not, you peel off a section and start for another only to have the piece get sucked back on to your body. Hope you understand our joy in having glass panels in our shower.
Here is our baby! All 19' of her. It will be our home for two months. Keep reading our blog and you'll find out how well that's going!
North to Alaska!
