I've been looking at tt online and today I decided to stop and see one up close and personal to see if they were claustrophobic - they were intimidating and those 5th wheelers were huge and very roomy on the inside and quite pricey too, but I could never imagine trying to pull one of those. They had a lot of trailers with the bunks, which I don't need and don't want. I want one with an end kitchen, be it front or rear, but they didn't have any of the ones I've looked at online on that lot and I didn't go to the other lot because there's a ditch between the 2 and you have to get back on the highway so I decided to save that for another day. The slides really make a big difference in the overall feel of the interior. I went into one with the living area in the rear and the dinette and sofa slid out and the big window in the back made it feel more open too. But I have to wonder, how is it that the 5th wheels look so big inside and have a bar in the kitchen and steps leading up to the bedroom when there is only about a 4" difference in the width? And, you don't feel like you're in a trailer at all but more like a small apartment. I feel a little better about what will work and what won't after today, and I will go back when my sister comes down. There was only one trailer that I felt comfortable about the steps and the grab bar and that is going to be a big deal because my sister broke her back so it's got to be something she can easily get in and out of. So I've got time and as my Daddy always said, "don't run at it" ..
