Hello Everybody!

Hi Forum,

Just joined today. We are new to RV camping. Just purchased our first and we've been working hard getting it cleaned up and ready for our first trip this coming weekend. We're really excited!

2000 Aerolite Cub 19' Hybrid
pulled with 2000 Toyota 4Runner 4x4 V6


Just wanted to say hello

Jim & April

Thanks!

Thanks Rick! I've been browsing the threads and finding out some really useful info. This weekend cleaned some more and did some trials with the city water hookup & lighting the pilot for water heater. We spent a good while looking for what was just right for us to get started. I felt good about this one.

BTW looks like you guys have an awesome set-up!

Best regards

Just remember to take it easy and don't let some one rush you. Most of all have fun.

Nice!

@ RickO: We're kicking around ideas as to what to call ours. We're leaning towards "Happy" (as in happy camper) LOL

@ Purplefans & Harvey: Yes, I've found lots of helpful info in just a short time!

@ Ken: Thank you, I will keep that in mind. Pulling it home when we bought it we had a trial by fire so to speak. Had 80 mile trip back home and went through one of the hardest downpours I've ever driven through. Could barely see. Just took it slow & easy and didn't get in a hurry.

Great to be here!

Welcome a board...We have the same set-up. 05' Cub and a 05' Toyota 4-Runner. We have had a 90', 99' & 05' 4-Runners....and tent, pop-up and now hybrid. I can say we love our Cub. We call it our "condo-on-wheels". 300+ nights in 6 years of ownership.
#236 Cub

I'm new to this. We have a Viking Epic Pop Up. Don't have time to use it much yet. Work, pets and busy work still getting higher priority. We have enjoyed what we've done so far though. I was just quickly reading some of your messages. Campers are friendly people.
