To stay caught up on Kjersti’s journey, be sure to read her previous post, “Whose Idea Was This Anyway?”
As the crazy idea evolved, we began our research. RV shopping became a bit of a pastime for us and the kids. We all enjoyed imagining our crazy new life in each camper we considered. We went back and forth for so long, I think the kids were more relieved than we were when we finally settled on the Arctic Wolf 315 bunkhouse. It needed a few adjustments in order to accommodate our family, but style wise it felt like home and it met the “under 35-foot” requirements we have read are common at the state and national parks.
The bunkroom had two top bunks, which Asia and Jake quickly claimed, as well as a futon-type sofa with three drawers built underneath. We pulled out the sofa and the drawer unit, reassembled two of the drawers with one on top of the other, and built a middle bunk for River, leaving just enough room for a baby bunk for Micah. In the main living area, we pulled out the four-person dinette and the sofa bed, which only offered seating for two. We found an awesome fold-away table at IKEA and a twin size day-bed, sporting a second twin roll-out as well as three huge storage drawers. We added a rolling island to the kitchen and as much storage solutions as possible to the second-bathroom-turned-laundry room. We built shelves and added bins to every possible spot you can imagine.
We were ready to move in! Or so we thought.
