Here’s the catch. It’s a camper!
My hubby and I, suffering from cabin fever and longing for spring and a return to our little camper in Confluence, spent Sunday afternoon at the Pittsburgh RV Show. No, we’re not shopping. Drooling? A little. But not shopping.
I flat out refuse to own a camper that is nicer/bigger/more expensive than my house!
Here are some interior shots of some of the RVs we toured.
I should have taken some exterior shots, too. The outsides of some of these beasts are every bit as extravagant as the inside.
I used to poke fun at the folks in the campgrounds in their fancy RVs who went inside after dark and never came out. They watched TV. If I wanted to watch television, I’d stay home.
Someone must have overheard, because a great many of the campers at the show had TVs built into the OUTSIDE of the camper. Pull out your folding chairs and watch this week’s episode of Survivor. How about cooking in the great outdoors? No problem. Lift a compartment door in the exterior shell of the RV and find a marble counter, a sink (with a fancier faucet than I have in my home kitchen!), a gas stove, a refrigerator, AND a microwave!
Oh, don’t panic. There’s a fully equipped kitchen inside as well.
But my absolute favorite is this:
That's an electric fireplace on the right side. In a camper.
Just in case you miss having a campfire. Maybe they need to set one of those into the outside wall of the RV, too.
Next year’s model.
