Hello From Very Cold Boston (-5 degrees)

Good morning,
New to the forum,
New to Coachmen Campers ..
My Wife and our two boy's have been camping in our 1995 Fleetwood Wilderness for some time now.
We head up to Conway New Hampshire, and the Lakes Region at least 4 or 5 times a year with at least 2 of the trips being full long week trips.
After this past season we came to realize that the Boy's are getting bigger, and the room in the Fleetwood was getting smaller lol.
So we did some looking around ( quite a bit in fact ) and found a very nice, well cared for used 2010 Coachmen Captiva 271FKS that was a one owner resent trade in at one of our local southern New Hampshire RV Dealers.
The floor plan is exactly what my wife and I were looking for, and it was clearly a well cared for trailer.
So we hooked up the old wilderness, brought it up, and did the deal.....
Now I have a camper I'm dying to get out and use and all I can do is look at it till spring time lol.
Anyway, I'm looking forward to hearing what you all might think about our choice for a new Camper, I did quite a bit of research before we pulled the trigger on it, found a ton of information on the Coachmen Captiva trailers, all good information, for some reason I just cant seem to find much on our particular model, there was a bunch on the 288FKS, but not a lot on our 271FKS. So any insight from you all would be great.
I'm looking forward to learning a lot from you all, I love the forum, and I'm very proud to me a new Coachmen Captiva Owner.
( I just wish it was Spring time :-)

Thank you,
Marty & Jean Miller,
Patrick, Cody,
and our 8 year old yellow lab "Hunter Von Miller"

Happy Camping all

Welcome from KY! Not a whole lot of info on our TT out there either. We really love our Coachmen as well.
