Finally With the Big Guys, Sorta

This is my new 30' Montana home away from home. This is the Montana/North Dakota affordable housing. Greg pulled it out last week and it is now sitting in a RV park with all the other campers full of oil guys. This has seven more feet then our North Dakota camper home. More storage. The bedroom mattress has to be replaced of course and the cabinets over the bed are so low that once you get a thicker mattress we'll have to sleep the opposite way which you would want to do even with the skinny mattress. It's has an all aluminum frame so no dry rot. We'll pull our Scamp out later so we can get out of one camper and go camping another.

That's a good looking 5er, congratulations! Just because a trailer has an aluminum frame and structure does not mean the 5er is immune to dry-rot/water damage. Water intrusion is still a hazard, it can de-laminate the walls which were squeezed together while the water-based glue dries. Re-sealing even the tiniest of cracks on the roof, corners, and around every wall opening, is vital to protecting your investment from water damage.
The trailer can sustain water damage from inside; condensation is a major problem during full-time cold weather living, as you may already know.
You two are to be commended for braving the working and living conditions in the cold North oil fields.

Congrads on the new "home" ... We have talked about selling the class A for a 5'vr,, but that would mean buying a pickup too, (which I would love again),,, but guess it will have to wait... Hope it keeps you warm this winter !!!! Monkey
