A short into to how I got here:
3 years ago started looking at campers. At that time we had a min an and quickly realized we couldn't tow what we wanted. Thus, we started looking at motor coaches, then cabins, then lake houses. In the end, we did nothing as the "lets get a camper for the family got a little carried away". So, 2 years ago we did the exact same thing. Bought nothing. Then last year we decided let's jut start slow and bought a popup. Well, after a couple trips we realized the van was not a pleasurable tow vehicle, so we bought a new Tahoe. This winter, we were sitting around and said.... "Wait a minute, we can now tow something bigger". So off to the dealer we went to buy our new Grey Wolf 25MB (Patriot Edition as they are known in Omaha).
We have 3 kids; 10, 12 and one who will be 16 this summer and likely not camping much. The quad bunks and Murphy bed should serve us well and the 25ft was as big as I wanted to go.. Still think I will be near my limit of the Tahoe. Will be taking delivery next Friday and already have several trips reserved. Most camping will be fairly local. As I explain it, the camper is the weekend getaway for us, not a vacation. Vacation for me is in a nice hotel, preferable with all-inclusive ammenities.
Now that we won't be a second class popup citizen (just kidding), we look forward to meeting up at the campgrounds!
