Congrats on the new trailer. We picked ours up a few weeks ago too and like you are here in Michigan. Come on spring! Where did you buy your trailer at? Just wondering in case we need to get work done. We got ours in Ohio Labadie RV

Funny I only live about 5 miles from Vicars. I seen ours online, although when we got there they didn't have it however they had one I liked better and matched the price for the 2010 for the 2011. Any campgroud around here that you like? We belong to Outdoor Adventures, its ok but the davison location is getting really big as they keep expanding.

how do you like the Outdoor Adventures ? they keep calling us trying to get us out there to try a key in a truck to see if we are winners

we do camp around here once in a while, we liked Holly Rec. Area (state park) its a nice up north feel camp site, also right by there we like a place called Oakland Groves ( i think that right ) they lots of things for the kids
putt putt, water slide,

we like going up north to a place called Old Orchard Park by Oscoda
you can get a big wooded lake front sites there
i have been going there since i was a kid,

Outdoor adventures is getting really big, the main campground in Davison...they have the put put, pools all the boats to use, lake and now they are putting in a water park, recently they have added around 200 more sites. As far as there membership I got mine from the internet, someone was selling theirs. I paid $1500 and then I believe there was a $200 transfer fee. If you are really interested in it then I would check craigslist and look for someone selling theirs. My husband boss paid close to $10,000. Thanks for letting me know about the other camp grounds!
Take care and happy camping!

All has been fine (knock on wood ), mind you only spent about 10 nights in it this year, and towed it about 1500 miles. I have done a few mods here and there, check out my pictures they are all posted there. On the roof I used Eternabond tape to cover the caulking they use, more to prevent a problem from happening and to lessen the time i have to spend on the roof every year. I changed the tires from the Duros to Maxxis and went up a load rating size for piece of mind.
