We started in a tent and we loved it, but Texas is H-O-T, so our camping season was usually a March and October. After a trip where our then 6 year old daughter got spider bites all over her arm, we decided to get a pop up. We've been thru 4 pop ups in 10 years and we are tired of the pop up and pop down routine that usually takes 2 hours!. I really want to be able to just roll in the awning, fold up the chairs and close all the cabinets.

Bought the tent because I had a hard time getting the MH in a canoe and paddling 36 miles across the Okeefenokee Swamp.

On a lark we rented a MH and liked it----surprisingly my wife suggested getting one----floored me she is not a camper------it solved our problem of wanting a winter home but could never agree where----now it is any where we decide. Believe me we are not camping---not with three TV's and a washer dryer.

Have been camping all my life. After my wife passed away I still took the kids camping. Now I still like to get out and take my 'kid' along and with the MH it is the easiest way. He has played in the Atlantic, Pacific, the Gulf of Mexico and numerous lakes and rivers inbetween. I hope we have many more years left to travel together.

Thumbs up always on the move

I have been on the move all my life, first my family moved every two or three years then I was in the Army and moved every two or three years then worked for the Gov. and moved every two or three years. It seems to be my life style to be on the move. I tried to stay in one place, but I get the hitch itch and I've got to go... someplace, anyplace just got move .

I bought this one cause it has twin beds so I could take someone along on a trip and they wouldn't have to use the couch which is an ouch.

I bring my fur kids along and they think of it as their home as we full-time now. I go where and when and for how long I want - it is truly as close to freedom as I have known.

I may be running from something or running to something and at this stage in my life I don't care which it is .....

To live in! I was technically homeless (was suppose to move to Seattle, another story) and crashing at my parents place. Also the thought of renting another apartment in Florida was not something I was interested in.

And so my dog could finally have a couch to sleep on.

We mostly got into camping so we were able to bring the dog along. From Pop-ups to Class A and everything else in between.

After a few years of tenting and campfire cooking we decided to buy a motor home.
the first one was a 83 class c Coachmen. Couple of years later we were at a RV show and sale ( i know the worst place to buy a rv) and looked a few new class c's.
Decided on the new Coachmen after a long talk with the factory rep.

Because we live in Colorado

We decided to get an RV because we live in Denver Colorado and I hadn't been to see any of the sights that people travel all over the world to see such as Yellowstone, Grand Canyon, Mesa Verde, Mount Rushmore etc. We saw Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons last year. This year were headed to Black Canyon of the Gunnison, Monument Valley, Grand Canyon, Mesa Verde and the Great Sand Dunes National Park.

Another time we'll hit all the great Utah parks and at some point head up to Mt. Rushmore.

And we get to take the dogs.

We went to an RV show in Atlanta in 2002 with absolutely no intention of buying anything. Well, God promises that He will not allow us to be tempted beyond what we're able to withstand, but He forgot about RV shows! We spent two days at the show and ended up ordering a new Cedar Creek 5er which was delivered six weeks later
