dec1952 - I was going to sell my popup last fall also but the DW was not for it. Said we would feel too pressured to buy a replacement camper.
As far as VT campgrounds, we camp in the Vermont State Parks. They are all dry camping (no hook ups) but do have dump stations. They are very clean, well run and inexpensive (~$18 per night) and have some incredible locations. Our favorite is Button Bay and we have been lucky to get campsites overlooking Lake Champlain. Here is the link; Vermont State Parks
Where in MA are you?

wbdvt-That state park looks beautiful but we have never done dry camping before. I think I like having all my hookups! I am from Ipswich Ma which is on the NorthShore-about 20 miles north of Boston. Maybe you have heard of our famous Ipswich Fried Clams?

It is and dry camping is something you should try. The facilities ( showers) are nice and only cost $0.50
Familiar with your area as the in laws used to live in Brewster

Born and raised in Georgia, VT (near St Albans).

The Ridgeline does great with stability (the Equal-i-zer certainly helps), but it sure is working on any sort of hill. If the hill is steep enough, it'll drop me to ~40mph and almost 4000 rpm. Hope the Honda truck engine likes to rev as much as their motorcycle engines do!

Yep, know where Georgia is. i work for Central Vermont Public Service and we have service territory up there. I got an Equal-i-zer e2 hitch but I hear what you are saying about working up a hill but I'm usually in no rush.

2109s - A Great little trailer

So far, we are thouroughly satisfied with our 2012 2109s. We purchased it last fall, took it on a short road trip through the Canadian Maritimes, including Maine & Vermont and are currently on a longer road trip, down in the southern U.S.; Alabama, Louisianna, etc. So far so good. Our only complaint so far is the slide-lock system. We've already popped the header board above the slide, by applying, what I thought, was a moderate amount of pressure to the slide-lock bar. Too much, I suppose, but too little, and it just falls down. We solved the problem by placing a 3 foot length of 2 X 2 against the inside of the header board and appling the slide lock to it. That way the tension is applied a bit more evenly against the length of the header board and not just in one place. Seems to do the trick.
I do have one question, however. We can't seem to connect to the cable system that some campgrounds have for the TV. I've connected a coaxial cable from their system to the trailer connections on the side and then using the TV menu, switched from air to cable. All we are able to pick-up are the TV channels that the roof antenae is receiving. Does anyone have any suggestions?
By the way the state parks in Alabama are great. Unexpectedly found Gulf State Park, on coastal Alabama and it was awesome!

We are in CA and are hopefully picking up our 2109s today! We are very excited. We too just sold our popup trailer and moved up to a Travel Trailer. So glad to be done with the popup - no more 2 hour set up!

Brand new to this forum from Iowa. We are picking up our 2109s next Saturday. Will be selling our Coleman popup we had for 12 years. Super Excited! Was on here to find ideas for camper organization and what to look for when we pick up next week at the dealers. Congrats!
