Hello All,

I am new to the site although I have been lurking for some time.

Currently my family of 6 are enjoying a Popup camper we bought a year ago. We plan to enjoy it for a few more years then I would like to begin longer trips to the great National Parks and Monuments, I don't believe 'full timing' is in our future, but long trips hopefully will be.

Looking forward to all the good advice from this board as I plan for our first motor home.

Welcome to iRV2. We are glad you decided to join us. The great part about camping with a family is you make memories that last a lifetime. By the time I was able to start camping my family was grown up and married. I had to reach out to our grandkids. They have never forgotten. I admire your effort to spend quality time with your family.

Welcome, your post brings back memories as we started with a pop-up as well. Actually a 1994 Coleman $2400. We wanted to see if camping was for us. Well, as you can see, it is. We moved up to a 30 foot travel trailer that we liked, but I got tired of hooking and and un hooking. Also, on long trips the DW was sitting on the truck seat just like always. We then purchased a Winni class C. Had more fun and this was a more enjoyable experience for us. So now, full time is on the horizon as the brick and sticks place is sold, and we will be in the Zephyr full time. Enjoy, as that's what it is all about.

Hello and welcome to the forums! Ah the memories! We started with a pop up too. Me,the DW, our two girls plus my mother and father, every summer for about 6 years. Talk about cramped quarters, but such great memories!

Hey there Ted. Welcome to the forum!

We're heading your way for the 4th again this year. We'll be staying at the Field and Stream CG in Brookline, NH. Getting a place any closer to Boston is tough at that time and I want to take the bike back up Mt Washington.

Hello fellow Baystater, I am new here too. I look forward to learning from all experienced campers. My boy & I have done the tent thing but never any RV's.
