    We Tried Living In An RV For 3 Days And Ended Up Wanting To Kill Each Other

    Hit the road.

    This is Niki and Garrett, and they are fascinated with the way other people live, so they go around finding interesting living situations to experience themselves.

    In this latest episode, they hit the road in a super pimped-out RV to Arizona for a three-day visit to the Grand Canyon.

    They were both totally aware the road trip would either strengthen their friendship, or make them hate each other's guts.

    The RV was a lot bigger than they expected. It was 32 feet long and fit six people comfortably. It had a TV, kitchen, bathroom, shower, and a cool slide that extended the entire RV.

    It was also tall enough for Garrett, who's 6'7", to walk around in, so that was already a plus.

    They had sewer, electricity, and water, but had to make sure to learn how to dispose of everything properly.

    BuzzFeed

    Niki kept it real: "I'm just worried about a poop situation happening."

    And they were off! Garrett drove them about four hours to the Grand Canyon.

    It was tricky getting used to driving such a big rig at first, but after the first 10 miles or so, it was kind of a piece of cake.

    Meanwhile, Niki slept. LOL!

    BuzzFeed

    Garrett swore he was happy she was comfortable enough to get some shuteye on their way there.

    They started getting on each other's nerves on the first night while Garrett cooked them hamburgers, but then he set the fire alarm off and that kind of broke the tension a bit.

    The plan for the following day was to get up and see the sunrise at the Grand Canyon.

    The next morning Garrett was up bright and early taking care of business. He drove them to the Grand Canyon so they could walk around for the day since they missed the sunrise.

    BuzzFeed

    "I think this was a pretty optimistic plan to begin with, because I don't think Niki has ever seen the sunrise."

    Here's the thing: He never tried to wake Niki up, and that wasn't cool with her, like, at all.

    BuzzFeed

    She was officially frustrated.

    They tried to clear the air and went to the Grand Canyon together, although Niki was still upset and needed time to get over it.

    BuzzFeed

    They couldn't deny the Grand Canyon was amazing.

    The next day, Niki cooked them eggs and they had a chat about Garrett letting her know when he drives somewhere. Even if she's asleep.

    BuzzFeed

    The air was officially clear.

    When in doubt...they always had the electric RV slide!

    BuzzFeed

    By the end of the trip they were actually pretty good at hooking up the RV.

    BuzzFeed

    What a difference a few days make.

    It was the third and last day. Although Niki thought it had been an interesting experience, she admitted it had also been a big challenge.

    BuzzFeed

    "This feels like something you do with the people you know you can piss off to no end and have them still love you at the end of the day. I don't know if we're there yet."

    Garrett agreed.

    BuzzFeed

    "I don't think this RV brought up closer together. It almost pushed us further apart."

    They both thought the Grand Canyon was absolutely breathtaking but were totally ready to go their separate ways by the end of the trip.

    Can you blame them?
