Hi there,

We're not new to camping though we gave up tent camping a few years ago - just got tired of sleeping on the ground, I guess.

Last week we took delivery of a 2006 Fleetwood Sun Valley but have yet to camp in it - we had a little problem this weekend... you can read about it in the PopUp - Problems, Solutions & Aftermarket forum (http://irv2.infopop.cc/eve/forums/a/...2/m/6411062562).

We're looking forward to learning and sharing as time goes on.

Take care!

Hi Dona and Elvin,

Thanks for the friendly reply. I am quite familiar with the area you mentioned - we have friends in Barrie and Orangewille and family in the Kitchener-Waterloo area.

If you ever do make to Ottawa, be sure to look us up - we can help you make the best of your time, and there are plenty of nice campgrounds around.

Take care!

Welcome to IRV2. We started out camping many years ago with a borrowed tent and moved upi to our own tent and up from there. I sure like camping my way now.

Look forward to hearing about your adventures and mis-aadventures as well. Be sure to keep a journal of all of your trips for a good laugh years down the road.

Ken

Hi Ken,

I guess the first entry would fit the latter category (as mentioned in my original post). You can read about it in the PopUp - Problems, Solutions & Aftermarket forum (http://irv2.infopop.cc/eve/forums/a/...2/m/6411062562).

We're not laughing yet but I can see it coming. I'm leaving for the dealer in 20 minutes to have the problem corrected.

Take care!
