Here we go...

Technically, I've been a FR owner for 2 years. We are in our second season of camping in a Palomino hybrid. We were new to camping, and started small to get our feet wet. However, having been fully bitten by the bug, we are now going all in and are in the process of purchasing a 2013 Rockwood 8312ss. Won't have it until September, but should get out once or twice before we have to close up for the winter.

Can't wait to learn more from all of you.

Good choice. We had settled on that unit before the winds changed and we bought our Windjammer. Enjoy!

to the forums! I agree that RVing is habit forming.


Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...
