Picked up my new Coachmen Catalina 253

We bought this a month ago but I was having a driveway replaced so I delayed the pickup. Getting it loaded up and ready for our first trip. I'm excited and ready.

Looks good! I think you will be happy with the Catalina. I stumbled across your blog last year looking for some photos of campsites at Carlyle Lake.
