Hello from Ohio.

I found this forum while researching the Vibe 6501.
I have camped in one way or another for most of my adult life. About 4 years ago, I retired after 48 years of being a work-oholic. My wife and I have been married almost 35 years and during that time, except for visiting family out of state, we took only 2 real vacations.
About 2 1/2 years ago, we decided to look around this great nation that we live in.
Sooo, we bought a new 2010 R-Pod 176. We took it to Gatlinburg for it's maiden voyage. It was such a good time that we took off for Idaho to visit friends. On the way back we visited Yellowstone, The Little Big Horn, The Black Hills and The Bad Lands. That was our 22 day marathon for 2010.
Then, this year, we took a trip via parts of route 66 on our way to Arizona. While there, we visited friends in Mesa, took road trips to the Petrified Forest and The Saguaro Desert. From there we headed for the Grand Canyon where we visited the South Rim, Desert View and the North Rim.
Then off to southern Utah where we visited the Red Rock Canyon and Bryce Canyon.
From there, we headed home via Vail Summit, Denver and back home. That trip was 19 days.
After returning home, we received a factory recall for the R-Pod stating that it needed more marker lights. While at the dealer, we made a trade for a 2013 Vibe 6501. It has more room and a floor plan that better suits our needs.
Sorry for being to long winded.
I'm looking forward to browsing this sight and getting to know the people here.
You can call me Grey

Good to know Ohio is well represented here. You keep things under control up north and I'll handle the south.
