Happy Campers Wanted

Hello y'all!

Camping (even as a kid) has always been my favorite thing to do as a family. I'll never forget after one of our tent camping weekends my husband saying: "I love you sweetie, but we've done it your way for 10 years, now we're gonna do it mine." And with that we purchased our first RV (an older model Class A Southwind). Talk about life changing!!! Then, three years later we got our second RV: a 2007 Damon Intruder. The memories we've made camping, plus the many trips to see family in MI, WI, TX and FL over the years are absolutely priceless! Wouldn't trade them for anything.

We still love to camp, but unfortunately my husband had to start chemo 2 years ago and we just can't go like we used to. As sad as it makes us, we know that season is over (for now) and we're in a new chapter of life. A scary one, but one we must get through none the less.

RV's were meant to be on the open road, enjoying this beautiful planet God created; or in the middle of the woods next to the lake, surrounded by nature. [Mod Edit] Life is an adventure and what better way to experience it than in an RV. Thank you for letting me share my story. Safe travels & happy camping to ya!

Prayers for both of you

Best of luck with the chemo. I had chemo back in 2012. All my check ups are fabulous. Wishing you better days ahead.

Welcome to the forum and so sorry for your lifestyle change.

I am certain there is someone/family out there that can continue to give your rig the love it deserves.

Good luck on your future adventures.

Traveling/camping are some of our best memories too, they are precious.

We hope the chemo works well for your husband, and you are back on the road again soon, making more happy memories.
