I can't believe we're doing this! Upgrade?

A few weeks back, I posted about moving up from a TT to a 5/er. But this weekend, we did it! We put a order in on a 5'er! We have only been camping for 1 year and also a TT owner for 1 year. But let me tell you, we absolutely love it. We camp every single chance that we get and the entire family loves it!

This weekend, hubby pulled the trigger and ordered a new 5'er. We'll be moving away from Forest River because Open Range had the floorplan that was an absolute 100% match to our needs. So, we are upgrading our tow vehicle and camper all within the next couple of weeks. I am sad that we will be leaving the Forest River community. Quite frankly, this group of people is bar none. So kind, so helpful and just plain awesome! But I'm super excited about what lies ahead. 2 bathrooms for the 5/6 of us is what we need and their 427BHS fits the bill.

We also have a potential buyer on our TT. So, life is good in the camping world!

Just because you are getting another brand doesn't mean you still can hang out here with us

Congrats on the new open range. You can still hang out on the boards even if you own an SOB (some other brand). Many still do that.

Congratulations on the new unit, as posted above no need to leave many of the appliances in the Open are the same as the ones used in FW by everyone but apple.

Hang around you'll be glad you did.

Definitely stay! I have been an S.O.B. owner for over a year, and cannot find the same level of advice on the other forums I joined.

Sure , stay!
If we ever upgrade to a 5th wheel, we'll probably buy a non-FR product, since they don't make a floor plan that fits us.
But I'll still stay active here.

Congrats and good luck with your new rig. We went from a Cougar 5th wheel to a FR and never looked back. Stay with our group or come back and visit every so often.
