Aliner Pflugerville, Tx

I came to San Antonio on Monday and took care of some business. I now have some free time to dedicate to what I love to do, rving. Yesterday we drove up to San Marcos to see Hi-Lo travel trailers. I have always been a fan of low-profile travel trailers and we had owned two Trailmanors previously. The Hi-Lo just didn't fit the bill for what we were looking for. I like the size and the motorized lift mechanism but I just wasn't convinced with the insulating values in terms of noise. We tried several different models and found them all to let in quite a bit of outside noise. Again, it is a great unit, but I am a very light sleeper and need a quiet place to hang out for naps. I may have been convinced if the bathroom was made with folding walls like the Trailmanor.

We headed on up to Pflugerville and were well-received at Princess Craft Manufacturing. They are a Texas dealer for Aliner and Chalet A-frame rv products. I fell in love with the new Aliner Ease. It is roomy, has a folding bath that folds down to make great counter space, has a large and comfortable sofa on one end and a dinette on the other. The sofa and the dinette make into beds, and the counter systems are all flush hiding the range and sink under glass covers. The fit and finish look pretty good and I opened and closed several units to prove that it can be setup in 60 seconds. Take a look:

Some of the added features are the built in 5000 btu air conditioner which I know will run up to 14 hours on our Honda 2000. Also, on both sides of the sofa are cushioned seats and next to those are on each side are flip up counter tops, just great for a plate or a cocktail.

After all the driving around yesterday, we headed out to the Corp of Engineers site, Lake Georgetown. What a beautiful campground! 140 sites all with electric, water, covered picnic areas, campfire rings and grills. The bathrooms are clean, and have showers and and plenty of hot water. The roads are well-maintained and the sites level. It was an evening of peace and quiet and at only 18 dollars for the night.
