Hello from Michigan

Well my wife and I have decided to move out of the tent and into a camper. So last week we purchased a 2015 Grey Wolf 23dbh. We'll go and pick it up in mid April and hopefully all the snow will be gone.

It's our first camper, so hopefully the learning curve isn't too steep. We have our first child coming any day now and didn't want to have to sacrifice camping. A newborn in a tent wasn't an ideal situation and this has been on our radar for a couple of (wet in a tent) years.

So hopefully we've made the right choice and will find all the enjoyment we're looking for.

Welcome from Wisconsin and congrats on your 2015 Grey Wolf 23dbh. And congrats on the new addition to your family. Yes there is a learning curve so just take things slow and easy. I'd suggest taking you shake down cruise someplace close to home. Or better yet if space allows in 'camp driveway'.

Congrats on your first camper but even more so on the soon to be arrival of your first baby! The good part about the learning curve with RVing is that most of it you can take at your own speed. Remember that questions are always welcome.
Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...

Congrats on the new camper and a bigger congrats on the new baby. I just bought my first TT as well and pick it up on the 3rd of April.

So with that being said, yes you did good and you won't have to worry about being woke up in the middle of the night with a child crying cause they heard something outside. Crying cause the tent sprung a leak and their pillows are Congrats again from Ohio and looking forward in visiting MI.

Welcome from Ontario. Congratulations on your new purchase and more importantily your new addition to the family. Likewise we went from tent to trailer, easy enough transition, when in doubt think of the last time you were packing up soaked sleeping bags and pillows.
