Trailer: Boler 17 ft
Posts: 510
Hubby and I stopped by our favourite store, our town's RV sales, parts and service place. They had a new location and were show-casing their giant fifth-wheels at their Grand Opening.

We made an appointment for our Boler's annual check-up, then decided to tour the largest RV with the most slides. We were laughing hysterically at the price ($100,000) and amenities (gas fireplace, large-screen TV, stick-built chairs and side tables, leather couches on plush carpets) when the local radio personality asked me for a live on-air interview.

What could I say? I told him off-air that we loved our '77 17' Boler, but he didn't seem to hear that. Then we were LIVE on the air: "And what do you think of this luxurious trailer?"

Now, I was not about to say anything negative about my favourite store. Neither was I going to say that I wanted or needed a huge heavy "mobile suite" where I could ignore the outdoors to have an inside fire and watch a big-screen TV!

So I said, "It's gorgeous. It's really lovely."

It was! Just not practical, efficient, easy to clean, or suitable for pulling offroad into the forest with no services. I mean, you'd have to bring a vacuum cleaner along for all the sand, a carpet-cleaning system for the mud we drag in: good thing there are so many closets!
