Living in a small home can be challenging at times. My husband and I travel the United States helping with building projects all over the country. We’ve helped hundreds of individuals build their dream homes as well as churches build new facilities. One of the things that many people may not realize is the challenge of living in a fifth wheel year round. Because we travel all over the States, we are constantly having to deal with new issues that arise. Thankfully, the air conditioner in our camper works very well, and don’t usually have any issues with keeping the camper cool enough during warmer times of the year. The real challenge for us comes with the colder climates. In order to keep the camper warm enough during the winter months, we have to have electric heaters running 24/7 as well as the furnace that is in the camper. If we travel through really cold areas, we usually have to insulate the camper even more than usual. The coldest part of the camper is always the kitchen. There is a doorway that separates the kitchen from the living and bedroom area, and we usually have to keep it closed so that we can keep the living area and bedroom warm enough. We found out that a lot of the heat escapes from the window and door in the kitchen, even after we insulated them. With that said, I don’t do a lot of cooking during the wintertime because it’s just too cold in the kitchen for me to be able to work in it. Although living in a small cold space is tough, for us, it’s worth it to be able to help those in need.
