First timers

Hi, my wife and I have never vacationed a lot (5 times in first 47 years of our marriage), so in 2013 we decided to buy our first travel trailer, a used 2009 Wildcat 25 foot 5th wheel. Since that time, we have visited 11 states and have enjoyed the heck out of it. What with tricking the unit out and repairs, I sometimes feel as though the only thing that works on it is me, but, that can have it's upside. Anyway, see ya when we see ya and thanks
to the good folks who have helped us and befriended us.

Welcome from Ontario. It is not a hobby if you are not sinking time, effort and money into it. My 16 year old still tells camping stories like they were yesterday...to me that is worth the time, money and frustrations of learning about RV's, camping and maintenance. As my mother says...no amount of money can buy family memories. I did not get it at first...now I do. Mastercard moment.

Welcome. Sounds like you're well into it already. It does kind of get into your blood. Wise words from Tenttotrailer above.


Cheers
