We made the decision to move from our home outside of Indianapolis to a fifth wheel parked in central Illinois about 6 months before the estimated move date we set. It was towards the end of November 2015 that we made the decision to live in our fifth wheel however the fifth wheel we had already parked at our seasonal campsite just wouldn't accommodate our living needs. We started looking for a new fifth wheel. We searched everywhere, online that is. We looked at every floor plan, within our price range of course, and finally found the one we wanted. Unfortunately there wasn't one local so we had to take a 6 hour drive to Pennsylvania to trade in our old fifth wheel and buy the new one. It was definitely worth it.
Here is the floor plan that we went with. It is a 2014 Keystone Avalanche 361TG
There were several reasons we liked this floor plan over other ones. The bunkhouse was a must. We have two children and they are going to share the bunkhouse. This model has a half bath located off the bunkhouse, which is important to us because we didn't want the children waking us up in the middle of the night if they need to use the restroom. The bedroom has washer/dryer hookups in the closet which was a must for me. I do not want to spend time at a laundromat. The dining room table is actually a table with chairs, not the booth style we have had before. Another thing we liked is the reclining sofa. Space is a major obstacle in a fifth wheel so the fact that there are five slides makes a big difference. Every little bit of extra space counts.
Below are pictures of the fifth wheel we bought. We love it!
