We didn't realize there was so much black on the TT until we hooked 'er up to the new truck.

We RVers are a blessed bunch of people aren't we? I've decided we're all a really good group of people too. (pats self on shoulder) So, we deserve it, right?

All kiddin aside, DH and I feel we do deserve this. We've worked hard all our lives, done the "right thing" re the kids and other obligations and now it's *our time*.

Now we do what we want, when we want, if we want.

Life is good!

Edit;
I must have looked like Alice in Wonderland on our first trip out. Walking through the park and seeing all the expensive hitch set ups lying under the tongue of the trailers, Yeti coolers sitting out in the open, etc, made me think these must be some trusting people, or campers are really honest people.
Well said HERmit!

Indeed!

I think there's a conspiracy...FR seems to be throwing the most popular TV colors into their graphics.

I've got a son, DIL and grandson in South Arkansas. Thought about going to Lake Greeson but my son advised against it...said it's nothing like it was when we took the kids there. We really enjoyed it back then, awesome swimming in clear water. Camped at a placed called Cow Hide Cove.
Devil's Den is in NW Arkansas, The park is located south of Fort Smith near the small town of Winslow, AR. The road leading in/out is tricky with many sharp curves and drop offs with little room for error. Don't know how we would have made it out if we met another RVer coming in the opposite direction! Just part of the adventure...

Devil's Den is an awesome park, but there is a back way into the park that the staff recommends for travel trailers and 5th wheels. Instead of coming out of Winslow, highway 170 from Westfork is a much easier route. We camped there a couple years ago. It's great for hiking and playing around by the creek with the kids.

Leave it to us to do it backwards!! We came in (from the north) the way you suggested and departed the difficult way. It looked like the right thing to do on the map as we headed south

It is a great park and very well kept. Great memories of our stay there and the adventurous departure!

I just picked up a very similar set up. I have a 2012 silverado 1500 6.2. And a wildwood 30kqbss. How does your truck pull and handle with it?
