Love to get away AND take your family or friends with you? Almost new trailer is light enough to tow behind a 1/2 ton truck yet features sleeping for 8 with a queen master suite, 2 double bunks, a dinette that makes into a full sized bed. On top of the sleeping for 8 mentioned about, there is a jack knife sofa which makes into a bed which can also sleep a 4 foot child comfortably.Super slide creates plenty of room to gather to watch the TV, play games or just relax. No matter the weather outside, be comfy inside with central air and heat. Full kitchen with microwave, large fridge and huge pantry. Full bathroom has entrance from both inside and outside and has a roomy shower. Use the outdoor shower, awning and speakers or inside the DVD player, CD player, bluetooth and satellite hook up all ready to go for you 24/7.

This RV is fully stocked with dishes, pots and pans, utensils, silverware blankets, pillows and sheets for all the beds (not the jack knife sofa). A truly Great Escape for All!

Thanks for your interest!

We have been RV'ers for years and just purchased this trailer in May of 2017. We love traveling in it! Please note, my first two photos are factory photos of this model as I am still stocking my RV with a TV, upgraded mattresses, nice linens, supplies, dishes etc. It's a process but it will be comfy and all around fabulous when it is done!

I want you to enjoy your experience in my RV and your valuable vacation time. When we have a confirmed reservation, we can discuss what items you would like me to provide or to remove to make room for your own personal belongings. I can provide, sheets, blankets, pillows, towels, dishes, pots and pans, utensils and some pantry staples (like spaces and oils) etc.

Please note you need to have a vehicle that is weight rated and in good working order to tow this trailer. Your vehicle needs to have the proper hitch receiver to hook up to our hitch and the appropriate electrical and trailer braking system.

Again, we want you to have a great experience. If you have any questions or concerns, please ask. We are here to help!

Thank you for your interest and safe travels!

This trailer was great. Our week in it went very well, it was comfortable and gave us a delightful refuge when the temperature went into the 100s (2 days). Plenty of interior space to store our things and the larger-than-usual bathroom was a pleasure. One of our friends we showed...

Hi Tom & Autumn,

Glad you enjoyed it. Hope it made your musical festival trip more cozy. Glad you enjoyed the pantry basics. We try to stock it so you just need to bring your clothes and your main food. Who wants to buy olive oil every time you go somewhere on the weekend?

About the Owner, Gail & Todd

My husband and I work a lot and don't often get a break. We love the priceless family times that our trailer makes possible. It makes any place comfortable and home. We love northern California from the coast to alpine lakes like Lake Almanor and Antelope Lake. Pismo Beach is one of our favorite destinations. Our trailer also makes a great, less expensive alternative to staying in hotel when visiting family. Because it is less expensive and we aren't taking over a family members space by crashing on their couch, it makes the visits longer and nicer for everyone. Both our sons are grown and the trailer is still creating some great family memories. I need those memories as they are both moving out of state soon which is going to be hard! I love that the trailer sleeps 10! Room for 4 couples and 2 kids. It works great for families and friends of all age groups. The super slide out makes a great space for gathering and cooking. Tames the great outdoors just the right amount! Enjoy!
