Life En Route

Fiver

Our fiver is a 2015 Keystone Alpine 3730FB. At nearly 40ft long, excluding bike rack, it’s a pretty large trailer and about the biggest we would want. The size does prevent us from staying at certain campgrounds, but we’ve never had issues finding accommodations and appreciate the extra room and storage it provides, especially with three dogs. It weighs a bit over 15,000lbs as we travel, and runs 20-25% pin, which is why opted for a DRW to haul it.

The Alpine came with a great 1.5 bath floorplan with a large front bathroom and closet, large living areas and decent sized kitchen. We’ve made quite a few modifications to it.
