Welcome to JOF, and back to camping after your loss. Our sympathies go out to you. But you are right on about life being too short. Looks like your 5er is very similar to our 2004 29RLTS, except for the location of the kitchen sink. We sure enjoy ours, and know you will enjoy yours as well. Please post often, and it's great to have you aboard.

Welcome to the JOF Garfield. Sorry to hear about your son's tragic death; it's neat that you are continuing something that was special to him/you while he was young. We also returned to rv'ing after a hiatus knowing 'time could be short'. Have fun making new memories
