2013 Clipper 16FB - newbie to FR Forum

Greetings all,
We are new to this forum and we have purchased our first TT - 2013 Coachmen Clipper 16FB. For the past 5 years we have camped all over with our Jayco Eagle 8 Popup and loved every minute of it. But now that we are getting older, we thought the security of a travel trailer, not to mention a bathroom, was well over due.
We are still in the "honeymoon" phase with our new Clipper and are anxious to take it out. We're heading to Racoon State Park in April.
Looking forward to meeting everyone here on the forum.
Happy Camping!

Welcome to the FR forums! Congrats on the new Clipper! When you find the right unit the honeymoon phase is longer because of all the fun involved. I'm still in the honeymoon phase with my TT and it's 2 years old.

Greetings Bill. We've camped at Raccoon several times over the past few years, but in our old Jayco PUP. The jets can get annoying, that's for sure. We're going out again the weekend of April 12 but with the new TT. Do you think it will be any quieter now that I don't have canvas "bunk ends" to sleep in? I'll be sure to let you know how it goes - the F loop (allows pets) is fully booked already for the opening campground weekend.

Cold, Windy, No Fish but had a GREAT TIME!

Raccoon was wonderful. Some new updates this year to the restrooms but otherwise just the way we remembered it. So much easier with the Clipper TT than the pop-up (and warmer too!) Fish weren't biting though. The F-Loop (allows dogs) was packed until Sunday. Sunday night it was so quiet, you could hear your heart beating! We had a great time.
