Well, a funny thing happened when we made our next trip to our brick and stick house. We'd had the floors refinished and they weren't quite dry. The fumes were intolerable. We retired to the RV garage where we installed mattress cover, sheets, blankets and a space heater. We still had to use the facilities in the house, since the trailer had been winterized, but that was a short walk. I explained that, with all the expenses of the last few months adding up, THIS trailer was affordable and would allow us to access more remote areas than the bigger options that we had talked about. I had judged that this was the smallest option that she would find acceptable. In addition, the build quality blah blah blah and the trailer should hold its value better than most others that size, and we can upgrade in a year or two.
The next morning, she declared that she loved the mattress (a memory foam upgrade by the previous owner). The jury is still out regarding the storage, the kitchen area functionality and overall livability, but she has a positive outlook. Can't ask for more than that. And she had to admit that it's a big upgrade from backpacking or even car camping, and sleeping in a tent on the ground.
