Northern Illinois new guy

Thought I'd better check in here. I'm from Northern Illinois, wife, Nikki and 4 year old son Raeger. We had a travel trailer before but sold it when our son was born. Now that he's a little older we thought we'd get back into camping. Since I already had plenty of truck (Ford F350), I talked my wife into looking at a 5th wheel. And as far as used I thought for our area, you could get a nicer used 5th wheel for the same amount of money as you would spend on a travel trailer. Last fall we found a 2000 Cardinal 33 RFBL LX that we got an awesome deal on.

Our hobbies are of course Camping, sprintcar races and high school wrestling. We are avid Iowa Hawkeye fans (just football and wrestling mostly).

Other than we are excited to get out this spring and get camping. Our son is completely stoked about it and can't wait.
