New to travel trailer

Hi! My wife and I (Matt and Laini) are new owners of a travel trailer. This is our first venture into this as prior to it, we used tents. Our idea of a good time are outdoors activities, however we donít do much fishing and hunting. Hiking is an enjoyable activity for us. I work as a manager at a Lumber Yard and my wife is a new employee at a gas station. Prior to this, she stayed at home with the kids and babysat.

Currently, Iím writing a book and Laini is attempting to talk me into buying/starting a business. (Sheís close to successful lol)

Mostly, we take our trailer to do off grid camping but plan to travel elsewhere with it as well. We live in a small town in central Washington where we can enjoy the vast amounts of camp grounds in the area.

Welcome from Southern California!

Sounds like you two will have a great time with the new camper. And what a wonderful location you are in to get to some amazing places that can't be too far.

Enjoy,

Jeff

Welcome (again) to the gang here. You'll learn lots here. There probably hasn't been a topic that hasn't been touched in this forum somewhere. Enjoy the venture. It sounds like you're in pretty county already.
