New Here

Hello all!

I'm new here, but not new to camping - or RV camping. I'm from the central Illinois area - Bartonville (near Peoria)

I started in tents, years ago as a Boy Scout (and am still registered - 50 years now!). In 1998 I bought my first popup - a simple Coleman 10' model. Then in 2001, a large Coleman popup with all the bells and whistles. From there I upgraded to an Keystone Outback 29BHS. After 9 years, I finally traded the Outback for my new 2015 Jayco 32RLDS.

So far, I LOVE it, but haven't been out in it yet. I'm waiting for the winter to completely pass. This one is a V E R Y nice trailer!

Hope to see some of you out there in campgrounds.

Welcome from South Carolina from a former Hoosier. Hope the weather breaks for you soon and you can get out in the new camper. This is our first spring in the South and I've de-winterized and washed the TT and we're off for our first camping trip next weekend. I couldn't say that in March in Indiana.

Hey Welcome to JAYCO!!!! We love ours!!!! There are a LOT of GREAT people on this forum.... if you have any questions at all, someone will give you an answer or find it for you.

I grew up in Chicago, moved to the Chain of Lakes area near Wisconsin (looked out our window and there was Wisconsin), brother lived in Pekin IL. for awhile. The wife and I got tired of the snow and cold so we moved to Clearwater Fl area. Spend our summers in the Blue Ridge Mtns of North Ga (Lake Chatuge), and a few of those cold Fl weeks in the Keys... burrr.

Welcome Mike,
Hope you enjoy that new Jayco and this new one is capable of touring the West Coast and all it has to offer. Hope I get to place that West Coast State sticker on your map.
