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!
