Hello from Michigan

Anne and Jay here. We bought a used Fleetwood Bounder in June, and are counting the days until Jay's retirement the first of October so we can hit the road. We have always been tent campers,so it will be nice to hear raindrops on the roof and not worry about leaks! Looking forward to learning a lot from this site.

Hello &

Congratulations on your new-to-you Bounder & upcoming retirement! You'll love your Bounder, we do ours. Did you get a gas or diesel?

We RV in your state frequently. You have beautiful campgrounds. We particularly like the Sleeping Bear Dunes area & the Petoskey area.

Thank you all

We have a 2001 gas bounder. Its in great shape, and it only has 28,000 miles on it. Its a great starter RV. We don't feel too bad if we scratch or scrape it. We live about a mile from the edge of Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore Park. Since being voted "the most beautiful place in America" on GOOD MORNING AMERICA last year, this area has been crazy. Everything has been filled to capacity, so we have only camped there once this summer. Jay had to be at the park at 7am to get one of the unreserved spots. When January rolls around, we will definately be on the website reserving for next summer. Thanks for all the welcomes. Anne
