Hello from Western Kentucky

My wife and I have been camping for over 30 years. Our kids and grandkids still go with us.

We started with an old Nimrod tent camper that I could pull around by myself. The canvas finally rotted out, so we just bought tents for the next bunch of years.

In 2007, I bought a Rockwood Freedom 2270. We still have that, but last Saturday we purchased a Coachmen Catalina 243RBS. The pop-up will be relegated for overflow when the kids and grandkids come along. I think I will finally be done with tent camping. We are getting too old (not really, maybe lazy!).

Maybe with this camper, I can convince my wife to go more during colder weather. Me, I'm not just a fair weather camper. I can go in any condition.

Welcome to the forums from SW Idaho, the ground is not near as hard when your only walking on it.

Welcome from Wisconsin and congrats on your new Coachmen Catalina 243RBS. Growing up our family camped a Nimrod popup, lots of great memories!
