First outing was on the way back from picking it up in Indiana. We stopped at Laurel Highlands State Park, PA. Set it up in the pouring rain. Second trip was locally to the Eastern Shore of Maryland to acclimate the kids. Broke it down in the pouring rain.

We have another trip planned in Western Maryland later this month. After that we have a tent camping trip in the West Virginia mountains planned without the kids or RV. We take my BMW Z4 Roadster for that. Raises quite a few eyebrows when we pitch next to somebody with a big fiver

I've been looking at this trailer lately as well, and was wondering just how big the beds are. Any chance you've got some measurements? Are all three of them the same size?

Don't have the measurements handy. Here's what I do know:

The front and side bunks are advertised/sold as queen size. I believe that as we put queen fitted sheets on those beds and they fit perfectly. The rear bunk is supposed to be a full bed but we have not put sheets on it. Our 8 year old has staked that out as his domain and he loves using a sleeping bag along with his Pokemon warriors that, according to him, protect us at night from "crittor's". I tend to believe him as we have all been safe except of these awful stink bugs.

4dimnzn...I like your comments about the naming conventions on the trailers...and the 'cool' factor! Your rig looks pretty darn clean to me - had I know the option existed I would have done the same....

With all that said - the family loves this thing and that's all that matters. I want to get a few years of great family stuff from this rig implanted in the kids brains before I'm too uncool to do things with (their mom is much cooler than me).

My dad did it for me. Now it's my turn.
"Buffet Cougar", now that's cool though probably out as a US military weapons tag! Your sentiment about getting the kids/ family camping et al is spot on for me as well and it goes without saying their mom is cooler than I am.
