I Love RV'ing!

I'm new to this whole camping/RV'ing thing. When I was a kid, we had a pop-up style camper and we did a fair amount of camping until I was a teen and my parents sold the camper, but I wasn't much interested in it at that point anyways as I wanted to hang out with friends more than family. lol.

but we just bought a new-to-us RV the end of June and just returned from our 3rd camping trip. this time we went for 4 days down to the Redwoods, but just 4 miles from the ocean so got in a day trip to the beach also. I was NOT ready to come home, nor was my husband and even my 13 yr old son said he could stay longer. We just love camping with our RV. It's so easy to tow, to set up, to break down, such a stress free getaway. I just can't believe we waited til our son was a teenager to start doing this. and our two labs are loving the RV life too. you say the word "Camping" and they bolt for the trailer!

Great to see that you are enjoying the lifestyle again. You already have some family memories with many more to come. Dogs look very happy as well, enjoy and have safe, trouble free travels.

Sounds like you are smitten like the rest of us. When we get back from a trip we are counting the days until the next one.

Enjoy, be safe!

Yep, that ole RV bug bites hard! We too made the mistake of not getting an RV until the kids were gone! Enjoy the forum!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!
