Hi all, we are new the board and to RVing. Although we both did lots of camping as kids , we have recently been tenting but upgraded to a pop up to extend our season. A tent in south louisiana is no fun. so far we just can't get enough and have been gone in the pop up nearly every weekend since we got it. I need more vacation. hope to find lots of great info on spots to camp and helpful tips on the RV.

We have a lot of camping groups Here So if you find one close to where you are or are going to be, check them out.

colleen & rich,

Sounds like us. We started with no tent, then went through 2 tents before we bought our first Jayco pop-up. Wow, what a change to be up out of the mud! There's a tandem axle Jayco pop-up on a consignment lot that I drive by every day on my way to work - it reminds me of all the great times we had in ours every time I see it.

Glad to have you with us on iRV2 - welcome aboard.

Rusty
