Our home on wheels is a 2013 Heartland Landmark San Antonio, a 40′ 7″ long fifth-wheel trailer that connects to a semi-trailer-type hitch in the bed of our tow vehicle, a 2012 Ford Super Duty F-450 Lariat. When hitched, the entire rig is more than 60 feet long and 8 feet wide, and weighs about 13 tons.
Our Landmark has four “slide-out rooms” that retract into the body of the trailer for traveling, and slide out once we’re parked to give us about 400 square feet of interior space.
Inside, our home is pretty luxurious–much more like an apartment than a camper. (These photos are from early 2016, before we painted the walls and replaced the flooring.) We have a large, comfortable living and dining area, with a 40″ TV, satellite, and surround sound:
We especially like the 6-foot-wide rear window, which gives us an ever-changing view depending on where we are parked:
Because David likes to cook, we had to have a good-sized, functional kitchen:
In the bedroom, there is a king-size bed (which we modified to fit the Tempur-Pedic mattress we had in our townhouse) and a large closet:
We’ve made many modifications and improvements to our rig since these photos were taken, and we’ll be detailing those in a future post.
