Checking in from S/E Michigan

Good Morning all. New to the site but not new to camping.

We started camping years ago using tents as many have done. After the hassle of wet everything when it rained we decided to upgrade to a StarCraft pop up style with a slideout. We ran this unit for about 6 years and upgraded to a Shamrock 23 footer with 3 bump outs and had this set up for short time before just recently upgrading to a 2014 Prime Time Avenger 33BHS pulled by a 2005 Dodge Ram 2500 with Cummins Diesel.

Hope this is a great place to learn and share ideas. See everyone in the other forums.

Welcome and congrats on your 2014 Prime Time Avenger 33BHS. I think people who upgrade their way up appreciate the amenities more. Although I enjoyed our tent days as I did out popup and hybrid days I don't think I could ever go back.

Welcome from across the body of water (detroit river that is).

There's no use crying over spilled milk, unless it's on your keyboard.
