Living Area

The 100-watt battery tender, which helps keep your batteries charged, is one of the stand-out features of the living area. Fewer worries about power when you’re on the road is always a plus.

For chilly nights the Alpha Wolf 22SW has a cozy electric space heater/fireplace. 

The theater seating is positioned for a great view of the entertainment center. The seats are directly across from the TV so you won’t have to kink your neck to watch TV


The kitchen in the 2024 Alpha Wolf 22SW has a walk-in pantry right behind the television area. This was a great use of space and makes being out on an extended adventure even easier.

Depending on your needs, this could also be a con since the walk-in-style pantry has eaten up some of the available counter space. 

The kitchen gadgets include a functional two-burner cooktop, microwave, sink, and refrigerator. 

Unfortunately, the space behind the refrigerator wasn’t left open for shelving like you might see in other RVs. 


There is plenty of headroom in the shower. Josh, our favorite RV nerd, is just over 6’ tall and could stand in it comfortably. 

Forest River has  added a clothes drying rod, making it easy to take care of wet towels and clothes.

There’s also an oxygenic shower head, which gives you more water pressure for a more enjoyable shower experience. 

The toilet has plenty of elbow room *as long as* the shower door is open. When the door is  closed you might need to watch that funny bone.

There is plenty of storage space for towels and toiletries. 


The 2024 Alpha Wolf 22SW has a camp queen bed. Alpha Wolf recognizes that many RVers prefer a true queen bed, so they’ve left extra room at the foot of the bed for you to upgrade to a true queen mattress if/when desired.

Keep your devices charged and easy to access! Both sides of the bed feature household and USB plugs.

There is storage space for your clothes and belongings with hanging closets and drawers on each side of the bed.

The curve at the head of the bed makes for a nice headboard with a distressed accent. 

A downside with the under-bed storage is that there’s only one gas strut which may not keep the bed up on its own. 

Road Mode

There is no direct bedroom entry door. This means that during travel, when your slides are in, access to the bedroom area is restricted. 

The main door does give you easy access to the kitchen, bathroom, and living area.

The 2024 Alpha Wolf 22SW has a large pass-through storage compartment, and it even comes with a motion-activated light, making it easy to get into day or night. 

The RV is prepped for up to 500 watts of solar, perfect for staying powered up wherever you go.

There’s also a mini camp kitchen for outdoor cooking and entertainment. 

Potential Problems

  • Lack of a Second Entry Door to the Bedroom:

This may be a deal-breaker if you prefer easier access to the bedroom while on the road.

  • Slide-Out Window:

The slide-out window in the living area does not open for airflow. Some RVers prefer having windows in slide-outs that open for cross ventilation.

  • Single Gas Strut for Bed:

The RV has only one gas strut to hold up the bed.

  • Kitchen Space:

The RV features a large walk-in pantry, which is a great benefit for storage. However, this design choice reduces the amount of countertop space in the kitchen.
