It is sad to report that I sold the PCX 150 and upgraded to a light adventure bike to complement the V-Strom. The New 2017 Kawasaki Versys X 300 is a great light weight but full sized adventure bike. I still love the V-Strom 1000 but now the wife and son can join rides on the Versys that more fits our hilly twisties and occasional fire roads. The new Versys uses the Kawasaki Ninja 300 engine at 40 HP vs 25 HP for a Honda Forza 300. It does considerable better on the hills and passing on the interstate than the Forza. It has mild dual sport tires and can handle gravel and fire roads just fine. I am putting a center stand on it.

We also traded our RV and truck in for a big (42 feet) fifth wheel and a new F-350 turbo diesel Ford truck to tow it.

:D :D That 5th wheel is massive.

It’d struggle on twisty Yorkshire roads. I’d have a go though :D :lol:

Good luck with the new Kaw.

I've still got my 30 year old KLR 650. Almost sold it once but glad I didn't. Just put a new battery in it. . .runs great. Tall seat height though. 8)

Holy cow! Between that truck and the 5th wheeler I couldn't imagine you trying to get that caravan into a gas Station! I don't want to hear any jokes about my little Volvo V70 any more. It could fit inside that Truck!...and that 5th Wheeler is as big as a house. Heck, my wife and I could LIVE in that thing. Well, at least you live in a country that is big enough that you could haul it everywhere and still not see all of it.

I love the double tow with the boat. lol

We have to check out our camping spots a lot more with the monster fifth wheel. We can go dry camping with the two Honda EU2000 generators that run in parallel. I really struggle to call it camping with the DISH satellite and all.

Lets see inside pictures and some description.
It has five slides and is 42 feet long and weighs about 14,500 lbs. loaded. There are two A/Cs ( a central one and one in the master bedroom) and 4 HDTVs including one for outside. (50, 42, and 2 - 32" HDTVs). It even has a ceiling fan. It has a 25 cu ft residential fridge with ice and water in the door (and a second smaller fridge in the front living area) and matching stainless fridge, stove, and microwave. It has an island with Corian counter tops and 1 and 1/2 bathrooms. I love the private master bathroom the most. It has an electric fireplace.

Let start with the layout. (I will load some more pictures in a bit)

Image

Here is the link to the manufacturer (since the forum only allows smaller pictures). You can even do a virtual 360. Our interior is the 2017 colors. A darker floor and golden brown maple wood.

Here is our wood and counter colors. The floor is darker as well.

Remind me what the edit timeout is for again? Nothing like that exists on the dozen of technical forums I am also on except for the classifieds. For technical forums like this it is important to keep correcting the information as possible. That needs to be fixed.

It's important to relax and stay out of the way of the cook. A fine wine is a camping requirement. The third picture is the front living room entertainment center and fridge.

It is big enough that the dog and I can be in the rear master bedroom watching TV and my wife in the front living room (with her own TV, refrigerator, and bathroom lol) with the doors closed watching her show and not hear her yelling at me. :lol:

It's our version of camping? :P
