Although my family began camping last year - I thought a small intorduction might help...
I grew up in a family that owned a cabin on one of the beautiful Northeren Michigan Lakes so caming was never a part of my life. Last year due to a new job that took me away for long stretches of time my father-in-law lent my wife and I the use of their motor home to spend a weekend with the kids. We had a blast! Shortly there after we purchasd a Keystone Summerland (2010) which was a simple bunk house modle. Well I ended up living in it to save money for the rest of the year but we also took it with us on our vacations to Cedar Pointe and Disney World (during the Feb snow storn in Atlanta - That was not fun). But the time in the trailer led us to one conclusion - Camping is the best.
As soon as we got home from Florida we went to our local dealer looking to upgrade (as I will be living in the trailer now for 7 months this year). While the new models were great we found a virtualy new 2008 Salem 30QBSS that was just the ticket for us. After some negotiating with the dealer we were able to get everything settled and we are looking forward to picking it up this Saturday and moving it to the campground near my job location on the 28th of this month.
While we still plan on taking the trailer around to a couple of other campgrounds this summer I am looking forward to having my "home away from home" set up so that I can enjoy the things I love rather than a hotel room surrounded by concrete and asphalt.
