The "Passion Palace"

Hi,

Longtime "lurker" on the forum. Just want to thank everyone that's contributed information and ideas on here. It really helped us make decisions on the options when we ordered our trailer.

We picked up our "Passion Palace" on August 17th. Here are a couple photos. If you want to see more you can go here:

What we like: everything so far. We use it mainly for traveling to bike races and it's been perfect in this capacity. We travel with two dogs and they also love it...maybe a little too much.
What we don't like: not enough time off work!

Jeff

WOW ! love what you did with your Palace ! I also looked at a fabric similar to what you used and it looks stunning with your counters and tabletop. Beautiful quilt too! Our trailer is due November 23.
Do your dogs sleep inside or outside in their kennels ?

ENJOY !

Janet, don't be afraid to go a little crazy with the fabric choice and colors. November 23rd is not that far off. Enjoy the anticipation.

They sleep inside with us. I think they like the full queen bed even more than we do.

Thanks Jim. I'm completely new to travel trailers so several of your posts helped me get setup with the required equipment (for example preparing beveled 2x6's). So thank you.

Re: The "Passion Palace"

Congratulations! Well done
We saw your trailer in progress when we visited the factory in early Aug. It was awesome. Your choices really helped us focus on the kinds of ideas that would work for us, just like you said:

We pick our Cottage up on Oct 2 and are taking off for a trip straight from the factory. We'll have our little dog along so were interested in the photos of your two pooches. They look like they are enjoying the lap of luxury
What do you use for a tow vehicle?

The trailer is extremely dog friendly (meaning it's easy to clean). Your dog will probably think the queen bed was made just for them.

We tow with a Tundra 4.6L. I see you have a F150 which will be a great tow vehicle for the 19'. You'll have nothing to worry about.

I towed my 19ft with a Toyota Tundra 5.7V8. I like the blue interior.
