Is work over yet?

Can't take seeing my new camper sit in the driveway any longer. Sneaking away for a short weekend trip as soon as I can get out if work. Not my first choice of a campground but there is one 15 minutes from home. Time to break in the new rig and see what mods and changes need to be done before the 4th of July big trip

Go for it !!

On the weeks I only have the normal two days off, we jump in the coach right after work on Friday and travel 30 minutes down the road just to get away from the sticks and bricks and mingle.

I do this from time to time. Because of it I have gotten quite good at hooking up, backing up and unhooking solo, in addition to enjoying some camping.

We gotta be home Sundays morning for soccer games. But hey, it's two night by a camper with cold ones. And not being home means I'm not doing house chores lol

My wife and I have the same fever. Got our new Salem Hemishere 263RL the first of April. Been out in it two times for two nights each time. Getting it ready for an night stay in two weeks but told her last night we needed another two night local "trial" run before we go. Planning next week end after I complete the install of the back up camera set up. Hard wired for seeing the ball and wireless for the trailer.

The only solution for this type of fever is to get out rving/camping.

For incentive, if you need any, think "January, Feb." etc

I have a full hook-up at home so some times we never leave our back yard. It's very handy for setting up a new rig or in prep for a major trip. Also great for visiting RV friends.

We camp very close to home all the time!! Who cares! You're not home - and you're camping! No need to put mega miles on your vehicle or your TT/MH - - away is away!

The place by home is a very nice place, trouble is they tend to get some rift raft quite often. From where I am, the further north you go the more peaceful you tome will be. So 15 mins is risky, and hour you should be good. The further I go the happier I tend to be. Either way I'll be happy to get out. Also close enough a few friends might visit my campfire.
