Hello from Washington State

Hello Everyone,

Jeana & I have been "Camping" since we met 25 years ago. Our progression has been; back of a truck, tent, 99 TrailLite Bantam, 2006 FR Wildcat 5th wheel and now our soon to be delivered FR 2014 Columbus 240RK 5th wheel.

As educators we have been fortunate to spend around 8 weeks a year in the 5th wheel with the family. We look forward to continuing that trend in this beautiful new rig. Maybe we will be fortunate enough to meet some of you on the road.

Rick
2009 F250 Super Duty 7.3
2014 FR Palomino Columbus 240RK

Welcome to FRF!!

i think you mean a 340RK, not 240RK.
the 340RK and the 370FL are both on our short list of 5th wheels for our retirement.

we'll soon be moving to Washington. the DW is from Skagit County and all her family lives in that area. we'll be moving to our 5 acres on Camano Island.
hopefully the rain shadow will be more effective for us there, so we won't go crazy.

You are correct of course, I did mean 340RK! One would think that with the amount of money I spent on the thing I would know what I bought.

Yes, the rain in the winter can take its toll. I live and work more in the convergence zone then the rain shadow.

Regardless, wonderful places to camp here in the beautiful northwest.

Welcome, Rick. We're Class A people in Anacortes. Sometimes we're like Sequim, other times more like the rest of western WA. Interesting that, in the last couple of days, the Seattle area has been plagued by fog and we haven't see any.

We can get fog almost as bad as England, where we originated. We gauged fog density by looking out of the original Mini. Dense fog meant you couldn't see the end of the hood from the back seat. Heavy fog meant you couldn't see the end of the hood from the driver's seat.

What we get in WA is mist! If you can see the front of a 35' bus from the back, it ain't fog!

Hi from the other side of Saratoga Passage. Rain shadow helps but it doesn't necessarily convert to sunny days.

Wave when you are at your property.

We really liked the 370FL as well. Who would not love the size of that front living room. However this is more of a transition trailer for us. We out grew the Wildcat Bunkhouse but we still have a lot of years till retirement and snowbirding. So..... the 40 ft fiver or diesel pusher is still another 8 years off. Currently we spend more time driving then parking so I just couldn't imagine towing that big trailer as many miles and to the places that we travel.
