The recliners and picture window make the trailer very
Most modern trailers have short (60" or 66") sofas. This one
has a 74" sofa, long enough for Mark to stretch out on.
The desk was a nice addition and gets the mess off the kitchen
The kitchen is open and easy to work in.
The big window and expansive counter tops drew me right in.
The queen bed has a window for each occupant -- a nice
feature if you want a light breeze on you at night.
The dresser and wide closet allow enough space for all our
clothes for all seasons.
The floorplan is open and spacious.
2007 NuWa Hitchhiker II LS 34.5 RLTG
On May 20, 2008 we moved into our third Luvnest, a 2007
NuWa Hitchhiker II LS 34.5 RLTG. It is a 36' long fifth wheel
with an open floorplan that includes three slides and offers 360
square feet of living space. It was designed and built with
fulltiming in mind, so it is more rugged and better insulated than
almost any other brand on the market. The two recliners and
the desk were the major reasons for our move, as those
features make life infinitely more comfortable. It holds 70
gallons of fresh water, 78 gallons of grey water and 50 gallons
of black water, has a dry weight of 10,666 and GVWR of 13,995
(which we reached with the cabinets only 1/3 full). There is a
15,000 BTU air conditioner, 40,000 BTU furnace, 8' Dometic
fridge, four Trojan T-105 6 volt batteries, four Kyocera and
Mitsubishi solar panels with 490 watts total power, an Outback
MX60 charge controller, and an Exeltech 1100 watt true sine
We swapped the position of the sofa
and recliners, and put one of the four
chairs at the desk and the other in
storage so there are just two chairs at
the dinette table.
Our truck (2007 Dodge RAM 3500
single rear wheel) works a lot harder
pulling this trailer than it did the Lynx,
however we still can get up and down
mountains without fuss. We get
8.5-10.5 mpg while towing.
