If you’re looking for a luxurious home on wheels, the DRV Estates might be the one. Designed for full time living, the Estates 43 Cincinnati is built on the same solid foundation as its siblings, except it is trendier.

With seven floorplans to choose from, we’ve decided to explore the 2015 DRV Estates 43 Cincinnati. Its spacious rooms and excessive storage space make it an good choice for a residential home. It features a 15-inch custom triple box tube frame and a 101-inch wide body frame. It has a fresh water tank capacity of 100 gallons, gray water tank capacity of 75 gallons, and black water tank capacity of 50 gallons.

DRV's Cincinnati is designed to last for years to come. The aforementioned triple box tube frame is the largest fifth wheel frame in the industry. Its design allows you to open up the storage compartment, giving you more space for your belongings. The six-jack level up system, designed by DRV, provides maximum stability. To protect itself from Mother Nature’s elements, all gear boxes are located inside the frame. Heavy-duty Goodyear tires are designed for trucks – not RVs – so DRV says they perform better and last longer. DRV has the thickest walls in the industry, providing maximum insulation, and the foam core vapour barrier helps eliminate condensation.

If you want to treat your partner to a romantic dinner, you don’t need to make reservations at the most expensive restaurant in town. The gourmet kitchen is designed for whipping up fancy meals. It features a 20-cubic-foot residential, stainless steel French door refrigerator and a stainless steel convection/microwave. Of course, the kitchen comes with a sealed three-burner cooktop with hinged power countertop lift. Full extension metal drawer guides are soft-close, which means they don’t slam. The custom-made porcelain backsplash has hand laid tiles and the countertops are made of residential quartz. You can prepare food on the countertops beside the stove, while your assistant washes dishes at the kitchen island. If no one wants to wash the dishes, pile them into the stainless steel residential dishwasher. Once your meal is on the stove, keep track of time with the decorative wall clock. When you’re ready to serve, dim the LED lights and set the table. The custom hardwood dinette buffet is equipped with a pull out table and storage. When everything is set, light a few candles and surprise your partner with your gourmet dinner.
