90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After couple Russell and Paola Mayfield are following in the footsteps of Before the 90 Days‘ Larry Passariello as they opt for the mobile life by moving into an RV!
Russ and Pao revealed to their fans last month that they planned on purchasing an RV. While traveling in Colorado, the couple visited an RV show and seemed ready to buy. However, there was some issue with having the RV in Pao’s name because she wasn’t born in the United States, so they had to leave empty hitched.
The duo’s disappointment quickly did an about face when they researched RVs in their home state of Florida and found what they liked at a much better price. After a stopover at Russ’s parents’ house in Oklahoma, Russ and Pao and their son Axel loaded up their vehicle with all their stuff and began the long trek back to The Sunshine State.
On Tuesday, the couple proudly showed off their new camper (aka fifth wheel) with Instagram photos and a guided tour on YouTube.
“Trying to take/find the perfect picture to tell you guys that our RV (fifth wheel) is finally here!” Pao captioned an Instagram photo gallery of the family and their new home on wheels. “We did a little video tour, and it is on my YouTube channel!”
Here’s the YouTube video with the guided tour:
In one part of the video, Pao can be seen unpacking and moving in. “I have a lot of things that I need to organize,” she says. “And I need to try to figure this out, how I’m going to fit everything in the RV.”
Despite the difficulty making things fit, Pao is very happy with the space. “The size of the RV is perfect,” she says. “I am very grateful to have a place to stay.” She later affirms that she considers the RV purchase to be a “great decision” before admitting that she is still learning how everything works.
“It’s something we’ve been wanting for a long time,” Russ said about buying an RV in the couple’s video posted last month. “We were looking at different kinds of RVs and we finally settled on what we really, really needed and wanted.”
Here are some screen caps from Pao’s guided tour video:
And Pao’s Instagram gallery post:
If you are curious about what make and model of RV Russ and Pao purchased, it’s clear from their posts that it is a Sabre Cobalt. I did some research online and I think I matched up the floor plan from their video to the Sabre 36BHQ. Here is the floor plan, link to a virtual tour, and the specs from the Forest River website:

It’s not clear what price Russ and Pao paid for their RV, but Forest River has the Sabre 36BHQ with the Cobalt Package discounted to $47,355 from a list price of $68,312. It’s also important to note that Russell mentioned in an earlier video that they are going to need to purchase a vehicle to pull the RV as well. They were waiting to make that decision until they actually bought the RV so they would know how much weight they would be towing.
Congratulations to Russ and Pao and Axel! They seem really excited about starting the RV chapter of their lives. Perhaps they could start offering SUPER PREMIUM cameos where they actually arrive at your house to deliver the message!
