Greetings from St. Clair Shores, MI

Hello all...

Proud to join all you fellow FR owners out there. My wife and I made a decision 2 years ago to upgrade our camping experience from an '87 Sun-lite pop-up camper to a 5th wheel. Our plan is finally complete. We purchased our tow vehicle in August of '07. We had to hold off a couple more years for the camper until we saved up enough. Our budget had put us in the used market until a few weeks ago we came across an incredible deal on a new '07 Rockwood 8281SS. Took delivery of it last weekend and our first trip planned is Memorial weekend. We can't wait. We won't know how to act compared to our previous pop-up, especially since we had no idea how we were going to shove 2 adults, a 3-1/2 yr old , and a 6 month old inside that 10ft. box .

Thanks,

Congrats!

We went a similar route from camping in a conversion van to the GS. You'll really get spoiled now!

Remember - all the good campgrounds are on the East side of the State...
