Middle of Nov. in the Keys for a week. (Grassy Key campground) Have you ever been there? My only concern is that at times, there is a strong odor in Marathon Key due to decaying seaweed and whatever else. All of this is pending a successful pick-up of the TT on Friday. I'll let you know how it goes.
You couldn't have found a better dealer in Florida than Tropical RV. Two weeks ago I picked up our Rockwood 2702SS from them and could not be any happier. I had purchased a popup from them back in 2007 and when it was time to upgrade the was no question where we were getting it from. Please say hello to Dane and Joe (the service guy).
For our maiden voyage I demanded (ok, politely asked the wife) a CG with pull-through sites for my first time pulling something as large as this TT so we stayed at Lion Country Safari KOA, about an hour drive from Ft. Pierce. I told Joe that in case I needed him he was going to see some lions, he said no problem and I'm sure he meant it. You will have no problems, at least none caused by them.
I hear you about the keys, it can get stinky at times, with the very shallow water and seaweed, but hey it isn't snow!
We have stayed at Curry Hammock and Long Key state parks, which are very nice, but not at Grassy Key.
Please do let us know how things go and post pics!
