Hello From Vermont

Hello All

My husband and I just purchased our first camper (2008 Coachmen Captiva, one owner) but have only had it out once so far. We've boondock camped with friends in their camper for a while and decided it was time to get our own. We spent a lot of time researching and looking at different ones but there was always something not quite right about all of them. Then I saw this one and I just fell in love with it!

Due to a lot of other time commitments we've mostly played with it in the driveway but we're slowly learning the ins and outs of it and getting it geared up for our first real adventure come Spring. It's quickly becoming winter up here and the snow will fly soon but that won't stop us from "camping out" out there even if it is just in the driveway for the time being.

We still have a lot of questions and learning to do but I think I've found just the place to spend my Winter reading and taking notes! This forum is amazing!

My first question... I've looked and looked, searched and researched quite a bit and I can't help but notice that there isn't much information on Captiva's to be found anywhere. Is there a reason for that?

HI there from So Cal! Driveway camping is a great way to get to know your new RV. And it take away some of the stress while you check things out and refresh your memory of items you are not so sure about.

Good luck and happy camping!
Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...
