Living Small

After two months of RVing with two 75 pound dogs, it is amazing how we have adjusted to 300 sf of living space. The 31 foot Domani fifth wheel, with both slides out, meets our needs.

I started RVing eight years ago with an entry level RV, which was not up to the demands of our long distance travels. Now, three years into the 2009 Domani, we are getting settled in.

I retrofitted the Domani to suit our needs. A dining table with four huge chairs was removed, and the bulky sofa and matching chairs were replaced with a cherry wood writing desk and two comfortable leather reclining chairs. The galley has a convection/microwave oven, gas range, refrigerator and freezer. Most of the cooking is done outside on the grill or in dutch ovens. The Domani came with an outside entertainment center underneath the awning; the main salon has a 32” wall mounted TV and a 21” in the bedroom.

I gave up the tent and sleeping bag years ago for the comfort of a queen size bed with pillow top mattress. Now a necessity for all the aches and pains of my life’s many mishaps.

This is our last night in Long Beach, California. In the morning, we head north to summer quarters. I will stick that well worn Willie Nelson CD in the player and sing along with the Red Headed Stranger “On the road again, going places I have never been, seeing places I may never see again.”
