This is my 5th RV, not counting the van camper. It is my first Class A. Previous incarnations of "home" have been 2 21' Class C's, a 23' Travel Trailer, and a 26' Class C. This is a 32' Class A. It's BIG. Inside, I think it might almost be big enough. Outside, I think it's too big but what can you do? It's been an interesting experience since the beginning.
I bought this rig last summer and there is a long sad story involving mechanics and obsolete parts and what not. To make it a quicker, more interesting read - I finally started moving into it Saturday.
As I write, I have moved the basics of living (kitchen, bath, bedroom, work tools...) and put them away. I'm loving the lack of clutter and hoping I can adjust the interior to absorb the Stuff required to support my music and crafts habits without cluttering it up too much.
Sunday night, off I went to my jobsite and my first night of actually living in the HR.
There are things I like.
I no longer have to sleep with musical instruments in my bed - they have their own.
All the windows open, and the cross ventilation is wonderful.
The generator works. (It's my first-ever built-in generator. NICE to just push a button and have AC power.) Which leads me to: The air conditioner works.
I like the window curtains class A motorhomes have.
And the driver's and passenger's seats swivel and become part of the living room furniture.
My work tools are in basement storage, so I'm not tripping over them in the house.
The fridge (which I initially thought I would not like) is bigger inside (although the freezer is not).
There are things I don't like.
There could be more counter space.
There could BE counter space. (Who am I kidding? It's a motor home.)
The living room chair has got to go.
And will be replaced with my microwave stand from storage, which will become a printer stand.
There is one thing I vehemently don't like. The oven.
As you can see in the picture, the baking area is too small for anything taller than a tv dinner. My roasting pan won't even begin to fit in there. Magic Chef, you usually do better than that. And I miss the electronic ignition on the stove in the Escaper.
