The House on Wheels
We are currently living in the Durango 347BH. It’s a bunkhouse fifth wheel, which basically means it has bunk beds for the kiddo’s in the back, living and kitchen area in the center, and master suite up front.
So far the only issue we’ve had, is a leaky window, that ruined part of the wall and facade. It was clearly a manufacturer defect, but there were no good options to have a dealer fix it under warranty, and no mobile repair service would touch a potential mold issue. So we fixed it ourselves, and no more issues so far.
Solar was added in May of 2019 and we are still learning the in’s and out’s of it. The solar install also included a 233 Ah Tesla Model S battery module and a Victron 5000 Watt inverter.

We are not brand loyalists, so when it came to picking out a truck. I personally wanted the most stability and greatest tow capacity we could afford. Ram’s have awesome tow capacity (up to 30,000lbs) and we have loved the ride so far.
We also elected for a Mega cab to give the kids a little room to recline the seats and stretch out in the back.
With the Mega cab automatically comes the shorter bed. A shorter bed means less turn radius before the cab and the truck touch (crunch). So we also got what’s called a slide hitch, and an automatic type at that. So, as the truck turns, the pin box shifts towards the rear of the truck giving us more turn radius.
