Not new to camping, new to this forum.
I grew up as a "spoiled" camping kid, my dad had 3 weeks paid vacation when we started camping, I have seen it all, east coast west coast, north to into Canada South to Texas.
We had Starcraft, Apache fold downs, then 2 Jayco 14 footers.
We had a pickup with a topper, my brother and I slept there, mom and dad in the camper
He ended up with 5 weeks paid. Very fortunate kid!
I had not camped very much as an adult, tenting here and there, My wife and I had tent camped for a couple of years.
We bought a used Coleman fold down and used it for 2 years. after our son was born
We traded it off last year for a 22FB Jayco Jayflight. We love it! We bought it based on amenities and build quality.
