The only people who have wanted to sleep in the Interstate besides us are the grandchildren, who are not even allowed inside unless one of us is in there.

No play or reading time in our little buggy, thank you. Too many buttons to touch, push and flip---and then, there's that toilet with the foot pedal!

As to covering/shelter, even a carport would do well for shade and weather, and you could still look at that lovely aluminum.

We used to keep the Interstate and, before that, the Barth in the far corner of our backyard, until we fenced it in which made getting it back there impossible. Also, had to be pulled out of deep snow twice for those January trips south.

City ordinance prohibits parking an RV in your drive or front yard, so we have to rent a storage space after November 1 for however long we are home before April 1 when we can again park in the drive.

Yes, the Interstate, fits their criteria, as it has a bathroom.


🏡 🚐 Cherish and appreciate those you love. This moment could be your last.🌹🐚❤️

Have fun and looking forward to seeing photos!!!
Photos will be coming soon
Thank you for your enthusiasm

Congratulations and welcome to another (north) West Coaster!!

We live south of the border West of Puget sound, so our weather will be similar to yours. We are in the process of installing a "Carport" for the trailer (actually a 24'X36' pole building); we are close to the roof installing stage - can't wait to have it done.

Anyway, I am sure you will have a great time with your new addition to the family!!
