Hello all from Happy Valley, PA. Just stumbled on this forum today browsing iPad apps. Started out as a lifelong tent camper. Three years ago, after a three day downpour in a tent (we did stay dry), the wife and I decided we were too far along in age and income to keep punishing ourselves, and it was time to get out of the weather. That started a 3 year cyclone of upgrades... Purchased a 2013 RPod 182G, leading us to upgrade our TV to a Nissan Armada, which led to upgrading our camper to a 2014 Rockwood 2306, which led to upgrading our TV to a 2014 Tundra 5.7 CrewMax, which led to upgrading our TT to a 2015 Coachmen Apex 288BHS this past summer. I hope we're finished.

I look forward to learning from this forum.

Welcome to the site.

Are you full timing or have any intention of full timing?

Looks like a nice rig. I am sure there will be new units in the future that will tempt you.

A few years yet before we think about full timing. I'm a stay-at-home dad to two kids (DS10, DD7). The kids and I travel quite a bit during the summers... 42 nights this year... The wife tags along when she can, usually weekends.
