We did it...

We purchased our first travel trailer. My wife and I have been tent campers for a while now, and our 1-year old and 4-year old love it. But, we were getting a little tired of having so much exposure to the elements - especially the brutal heat down here in FL. We went to the RV show in Tampa a couple weeks ago and were looking at pop-up campers, but the canvas seemed to radiate a significant amount of heat, so we went with a small travel trailer instead - the Viking 17BH. It has all of the amenities we want at a weight we can tow. We are looking forward to many years of use!!!

Nice! That first step up from tenting is the best feeling. We had a popup for years, but never would have gone that route in FL. The hardsided trailer should be a lot more comfortable in the hot weather.

Dodge Grand Caravan. Need to get a more appropriate tow vehicle so we can actually take our out of Florida. But, for now that is the setup.
