A few months ago, I shared with my friends at Keystone that I wanted to do some seasonal camping in order to spend less time hitching, towing, setting up and reversing it all two days later and more time with my three new grandchildren and friends and family. They offered to lease me a Keystone model to test out and I headed to Florida to see them in person. 

Second Bedroom

I was already familiar with the Alpine Avalanche Edition 390DS though because I fell in love with it a year earlier at the Florida show. For years I have been trying to puzzle out why anyone would spend so much money on tiny houses that are so small, hard to tow, not welcome at most campgrounds and constructed of materials that are prone to decay with exposure to the elements. When I first walked through the Avalanche, I was gob smacked. It’s huge. It has two primary bedroom suites each with their own bathroom and the rear one has its’ own entrance. The living area is truly so large with windows that flood the space with light and views. 

Back Bathroom
Front bathroom

Like the Sprinter it has the optional super sofa which I would prefer for the way I intend to use it. The super sofa packs a pile of people and offers additional sleeping. There is a ladder in the kitchen that leads to a kid’s sleeping loft that will easily hold three or four kids on floor mattresses. What a fun place for movies and games. A built-in fort for the kiddos. The kitchen has very high-end finishes and is smartly designed with tons of storage, a huge double stainless steel sink and a built- in side buffet which would be a great place to set up a coffee station or serve Sunday dinners. The main bathroom has a built-in trash can, linen storage and a toilet paper drawer. This RV makes me swoon and would be a one and done. No need to upgrade two years down the road. I don’t know what you could want that is not already in this model. Its’ truly a home away from home on wheels.
