Spare yourself the trouble and don’t buy one of these. I’ve lived in it for about 7 months and it has been one thing after another. Now I understand this particular trailer may not really be meant for long term living, and most of them aren’t built with 5 star materials but I wonder if whoever designed this really put any thought into it at all. Let’s start from the outside. Under the trailer near the rear wheels there is just a giant hole that leads into all the wires and water lines underneath the trailer, perfect for rodents to get into all of your cabinets where there is water lines and/or cords running through to the bottom of the trailer. Which in this model just so happens to be all of them. Horrible design flaw. We had rats, and then after the rats came mice. Most of the areas are impossible to access without tearing out panels so in order to clean the feces they left behind you’re going to have to tear everything apart. All of this could have been avoided if the trailer designer didn’t leave a huge hole in the bottom of the outside. Somehow the rodents even made their way into the storage area under the bed, on the complete other side of the trailer. Don’t ask me how, couldn’t tell ya. A few of the windows leak when it rains as well as the window in the front door, easy fixes but still annoying. Moving to the bathroom, my least favorite of the entire build. It is functional, but very very tiny. The doorway from the kitchen area into the bathroom is so narrow, I am a small woman and I have to tuck my arms or I’ll whack into the doorknob or door frame, and then when the door is open you can’t access the toilet or shower without closing it unless you’re maybe 3 years old. I feel like they should have added a pocket door there. Not the end of the world if you’re just going on a weekend trip but annoying if you plan to be in it long term. The shower, oh the shower. It is two pieces, the tub and then the piece that wraps around the walls. But whoever installed it or whatever did it so poorly that the crack between the two pieces is wider on one end of the shower and impossible to clean on the other. Water gets in there obviously and who knows how much moisture and mold is back there. I’m not down for an entire RV bathroom remodel right now so out of sight out of mind for me. But I know how mold works. The floor around the shower is not sealed where it meets the cardboard like walls. So obviously water gets there, soaks right up into the wall piece and is mold city. It is however sealed around the bathroom sink, so I’m not sure why they skipped doing the floor. Easy enough to do yourself I suppose. Ample cabinet space in the bathroom at least but the one under the sink has been tainted by the rodents. Only a few months into living in this trailer half of the outlets just stopped working. Only 3 in the entire unit work now. Still have yet to find out why that happened. The electric water heater has recently started to trip the breaker every time it’s used, I don’t really trust the wiring in this thing to use it at all anymore until an electrician looks at everything. So be ready to just replace that after only a few months of use. The gas heater seems to work, but again, it seems sketchy to me. Call me paranoid but I don’t want to risk it. Not trying to start a fire! All in all, I would not recommend this trailer if you want to use it long term.
