Hello from south central PA

Hi everybody,
We are new to camping and we are scheduled to pick up our Salem Cruise Lite 195BH a week from tomorrow. We plan on camping all over PA and we wanted to start with an entry level unit and then see how bad we have the "camping bug". We are about two years away from retirement and we wanted to get a couple of years of experience under our belts before we expand our horizons in the camping world. Our goal is to make lots of new friends and see as many of the places that we are interested in as we possibly can. I am already making a list of newbie questions to bombard you with. We are grateful for the opportunity to be a part of this group. Thank you all. Michael and Barb.

Welcome to the forums Michael and Barb. Good to have you here and fire away with those questions!

Enjoy you new trailer!

Also from PA, just Northeast of Allentown near the Pocono's. Welcome to the Forum, have been camping all my life but, just recently bought a used Travel Trailer to use with my own family.

Fire away with the questions is right, everyone is VERY helpful.

Good luck and Happy Camping!

Hello from York Pa. You will love it, we just retired and went full time in our MH. Doing Florida over the winter and back to Pa. In the summer plus traveling. Try Buttonwood in central Pa, it's nice there. Enjoy

Hello, from southern York County!
That same bug bit us this year too. In PA we camped at Raystown Lake, Granite Hill Gettysburg, and a nice little place in Newville called Dogwood Acres. All very good experiences.
I found this forum to be the best source of info, tips, tricks and even laughs from folks who have been there/done that!
