And we have a surprise . . .
We christened her "Sacajawea." She weighs in at a healthy 6,000 pounds, and she is 21 feet long (25 feet "all in," including the tongue).
We are counting on her to accompany and guide us on many family adventures in the years to come.
Ain't she a beaut, Clark? ;) Here are a few pics of some of the amenities she offers:
Some might call this next evolution of our carpe diem lifestyle "glamping," but hey, we're in our 50s now, so we felt like we deserved a little comfort.

Of course, it wouldn't be an adventure without something going wrong! Thankfully, my hubby is resourceful, and the dead trailer battery (What the heck??? It was only sitting for a couple of days!) didn't keep him from figuring out how to manually raise the leveling and tongue jacks, and after much checking and rechecking of our "what to do" before you start driving list, we were on our way!
Having the pop out dinette area is nice because it makes it feel extra roomy on the inside.
Although we didn't get to spend much time here, beautiful Champoeg Park was a great way to break her in and get our confidence up. Time to get some shut eye and start dreaming about the rest of our summer adventures!
