We always loved tent camping and through the years, had acquired all the equipment you would ever need for camping in the wilderness (now in my attic). We camp in bear country and as soon as the grandkids started going, we decided to put something thicker than canvas between them and the bears. Haven't looked back once...Sleeping in my bed is a lot more comfy than the air mattress on uneven ground ever was.

Great story and welcome!

Check out my signature for my previous accommodations. Heck of an upgrade, but you know what they say; Happy wife, happy life!

Welcome! Even when DH goes on business trips within the state - we'll take the TT instead of booking a hotel, nothing like sleeping in your own bed.

Our tipping point were two Samoyeds ... they liked to nest (on top of the sleeping bag) and I'd wake-up each morning with a face full of their fuzzy under-fur. Finally told the DH we were finished camping unless he came-up with a fix - and he did! (a few years later the same approach got me our first dishwasher - baby excuse instead of dogs).

Welcome! My wife and I bought our first travel trailer 4 weeks ago and now all I can think about is when we'll get to go out again! I hope you're having as much fun.

Safe travels.

Our 28DSBH was our first TT as well and we absolutely love it!! Have had 2 seasons of great memories and have travelled coast to coast across Canada with it.
Hope you create many great memories in yours.

Welcome. Enjoyed your intro.

We upgraded from a tent to a Greyhawk. Now, as far as I am concerned, "roughing it" means we have no utilities and have to run the generator to make coffee.
