I recently purchased a large travel trailer, and am fulfilling my inner redneck completely by living and working full-time in a trailer park. In Texas. It’s a learning experience. I want to share my lessons learned.
So, let’s start with my rig. It’s a 2020 Keystone Passport 2950BH Grand Touring. Let me decode that.
Keystone is the manufacturer.
Passport is the model.
2950 means that the internal living area is 29.5 feet long, 8 feet wide, excepting the slide which adds another ~36 square feet when extended.
BH = bunkhouse. By design, this rig sleeps up to 10 people.
Grand Touring is marketing wank.
I have an indoor kitchen - 3 burners, an oven, a microwave, a mid-size refrigerator and freezer over/under. I have an outdoor kitchen - 2 burners, and a mini-fridge (well, I need to procure the mini-fridge, still).
2 air conditioners. 1 full bathroom with a separate external door. The bunk beds each sleep 2, but I’ve removed the lower one to convert into the Bullshido Mobile Command Center (pics to come).
42" LED TV in an integrated entertainment center. Radio, Sirius/XM, satellite TV ready, cable TV ready, integrated WiFi with LTE (I’m upgrading that to a 5G this weekend). Outdoor speakers on a separate circuit. Outdoor SAT/CATV connections. Underbelly is heated. Wired for cameras/security (that’s a project on my list). Master has a full-sized queen bed, and dual barn-door isolation from the rest of the rig. Water heater will operate on propane (2 tanks) or electric. Refer will operate on propane, if there’s no electric… i.e. your frozen shit will stay frozen in transit.
This is my first experience with living the RV life full time, so I’m learning as I go. It’s a lot like freedom, though, so far. Any of you that have lived on the water will appreciate these tales.
