Our Winnebago Motorhome

We've been asked a few times, "what does your motorhome look like"? I recently took a few photos of the interior of our RV so I thought I'd post them on here for anybody to see.

The first view is of our kitchen area. Being a diesel motorhome, the entry door is up at the very front on the passenger side. So we enter in the front and the first thing we come to is the kitchen. We like the forward kitchen a lot and it has been a new floor plan for motorhomes the past 3 or 4 years. The kitchen is compact, of course, but it contains all of the necessities for cooking anything I want to prepare. I have a convection/microwave oven, a 3 burner cooktop, double sink, and a side by side refrigerator with ice maker. You can get dishwashers installed now, but we do not want to add one as it will take away valuable drawer space. Storage is at a premium in any RV and you want all you can get.

This next view is from the living room area looking forward to the kitchen. You can see the refrigerator in this view. It also allows you to see our dining table when it is fully extended and we can seat 4 adults comfortably. On the left of the photo you can see our queen sized sofa bed. Our granddaughters love to sleep here when they come for a sleep-over.

This third, and final, photo I'm posting shows our living room/dining room area. We have a nice lounge chair and ottoman next to the sofa and opposite our entertainment center. That's the chair Bruce has claimed as his own. We have a nice 30 inch TV and DVR in our entertainment center, plus more storage above and below the TV. We also have room against the wall by Bruce's chair for a computer table.

Past the living room area and down the hall is the bedroom with a queen sized Sleep Number bed a large wardrobe closet, window seat with storage and a washer/dryer. There is a second closet in the hall between living room and bedroom. Off the bedroom is the bathroom with a shower and plenty of counter space and 2 medicine cabinets.

This motorhome is a 40-foot Tour model from Winnebago. It has a 400 hp engine so it gives us plenty of power to climb mountain passes and keep up with traffic. We tow our Ford Explorer behind the RV so we always have a smaller vehicle to get around in once we've set up at an RV campground.

This is our only home now....hence the term "full-timers" to describe our RV lifestyle. We've now been full-timers for 9 months and are still enjoying it completely. We've come across the country to Virginia from Washington to visit with family and since we've brought our home with us we do not have to intrude on our family. It makes it nice for everyone this way. I don't think we've worn out our welcome yet.
