Hello from Eastern Maine

Hello from eastern Maine. I am semi retired, and I own a 2013 Jayco Swift 267 BHS. I camped a lot this year, have winterized the camper, and am getting it ready for storage. I have done several modifications/upgrades, to the camper, and plan to try boondocking next year.

Welcome to the forum.
Love the state of Maine. Worked in Auburn Maine for several months.
Got to see many of the beautiful places around the state.
I really liked that SP near the shipyards, not far from LL Bean. Reid SP maybe?

Kind regards,

Gutter spouts

Curtains and a better shower curtain

Hello Crabman

Thanks for the welcome. My computer skills need work, but I will attempt to make pictures of the camper before I put in storage. I will have more time as we get into the winter months.


I live in the other Maine up here on the 45 parallel up above the Volvo line. I have been to Bar Harbor, very crowded in the summer, but nice too.
