After driving across Canada last year and sleeping in tents, I realized my hips are starting to get too old for sleeping on the ground.


Cheers!
Hey hey! Congrats on the purchase and the entrance into a whole new world of camping. Or is it campering?

Dawn and I came to the same decision earlier than you. We spent our last night in a tent in, I think, 2004... and we bought our first trailer, a Fleetwood pop pp, in 2006. Since then there's been a LOT of camping. Getting off the ground makes a huge difference.

So... where'd you buy yours, and what are you towing it with?

I just noticed that, like us, you tow with a ProPride hitch! How long have you had it?
Have the ProPride since day one, 1400 lbs bars......never had a white knuckle drive in 5 years of use.....as far as I'm concerned the best on the market....

We've been towing with ours since 2009. It replaces an Equal-I-Zer we used for a couple of months. No comparison. There's nothing like surprise-free towing!

Welcome from a little east of Toronto! Nice website BTW. You've obviously done a ton of trips since buying the Starcraft. I hope you thoroughly enjoy your new Rockwood.

Thanks!

Trips in the Starcraft, let's see... By my calculations, 80 trips... 245 nights... just a little over 34,000 km.


Thanks for the welcomes, folks!
