Our current home on wheels is a custom-built 2023 New Horizons Majestic, a 41-foot-long fifth-wheel trailer that connects to a semi-trailer-type hitch in the bed of our tow vehicle, a 2020 Ford Super Duty F-450 Platinum. When hitched, the entire rig is about 63 feet long and 8 1/2 feet wide and weighs about 34,000 pounds.

Our truck and fifth-wheel trailer

We took delivery of the Majestic on May 9, 2023. It replaced our 2013 Heartland Landmark San Antonio fifth-wheel, which we’d owned for the preceding eight years and lived in full-time for seven.

Our Majestic has three “slide-outs”, 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.

Our Majestic set up in a campground, with two of the three slide-outs visible.

For more photos of the exterior along with lots of interior photos taken just before we moved in, see the May 22, 2023 post Our new home. We also did a video tour in June, which you can watch below.

We are also Ambassadors for New Horizons RV–so if you’re thinking about building one of your own, we’d love to show you our Majestic and share our experience with you! You can see where we are now and where we’re going over the next few months on the Our Travels page. Just send us a message with the form below, and we’ll be in touch soon.
