So our search has continued, to find the best rv for living for our family. Part of the problem that I’m mentioned before is that we have three children and the eldest being a boy, I’d like to be able to offer him some privacy from his younger sisters.
Recently, we’ve found a really nice model from Glendale RV. The model is a 36E41 I believe. What makes it very special is the fact that the rear of the unit has two slides with two bunks on either side.
Between the two bunk sets is a two to three foot walled off area that contains storage space and a toilet and sink! Very nice. Another nice feature I like about this model is on one side, the bottom bunk folds up to the inside and you can access the space as storage from outside!
Other nice features that we like is the master bedroom in the front of the RV just feels nicer then many that we’ve seen. I think it has to do with the fact that you don’t feel like your head is in a cave like most that have slides up front do.
But selecting the best rv for living with your family in mind will definitely be a searching game. My wife and I both believed that we’d just find the ‘right’ RV when we found it. And with the Glendale unit, I believe that we’ve found it.
Other units that we’ve liked too have been from Jayco. Seems like Jayco is a little bit closer to the beat of families with kids then other vendors are.
One thing that we have to really look into is the full time living in any unit we select. It’s one thing to vacation for a couple of weeks per year or to live full time in an RV. And I’m not talking about what could go wrong, I’m talking about the minor annoyances that could exist that would be major frustration if you had to deal with it 365 days per year.
My main recommendation when choosing the best RV for living, is to really step slowly. Get the sales people out of your face and just sit in the unit. Open cupboards. Play with the gizmos inside the RV. Make sure nothing and I mean nothing makes you go hmmm. You are really looking for the potential show stoppers that would really be bad to deal with after you’ve paid for the unit.
