Well, we have been looking at some options for upgrading to a motorhome as opposed to a bigger trailer for our on-the-road-again exploits. A while back, I suggested in a comment to a previous post that we might be considering an upgrade to a Class “C” motorhome - a truck chassis extended to include the amenities of a travel trailer.
But, then we got to thinking about what would be important to us on the road. We both wanted a King size bed (our current Queen size in the trailer is a bit tight for both of us, often one sleeping on the couch/bed) and The Better Half needed more counter space in the galley for meal preparation. Neither of those two options seemed to be available in a reasonably compact Class “C” rig.
We looked at Class “A” motorhomes searching for the king/counter top combination and found a few candidates in the 30-foot long category. We were attracted to the Thor ACE 29.4 because it had a king size bed and a floorplan we liked, but the counter space was a bit limited, but workable, being slightly better than our current travel trailer.
We continued to do more shopping and that brought us to the Forest River 28DS pictured in the (clickable) image above. This unit is still in the 30 foot category as the Thor ACE, but has pop-up and pull-out galley counter top extensions to allow for TBH’s druthers on counter space. The FR28DS floorplan has two pop-outs to accommodate the bedroom in the rear and the living area and galley on the left side.
We are still in the “just thinking” stage of planning, but are pretty sure we’re going to do this eventually. I currently lean toward the FR28DS, but things can change after we go shopping.
I uploaded a couple more views of the Forest River RV:
We will post more on this topic when new information is available and if/when our decision has been made.
