Hi from Orlando!

Hello!
My wife Patty and I just purchased a cedar creek 30rl, which we hope to pick up next week. We've had a Glendale Titanium 24/29 for 7 years and we loved it but we've begun volunteer camphosting and decided it was time to move up to more room and features. We're really excited about our new purchase and can't wait to learn about and enjoy it. We're interested in any ideas and suggestions anyone may have for us for what we should pay the most attention to as we get our intro to the new camper next week! we'll definately be in touch!

Chuck & Patty

Insist on a great PDI and check out anything and everything before leaving the lot. Members have posted their PDI checklists so you might do a search and review the checklist. Take lots of notes and ask questions. Use your smartphone to take pictures or video tape when necessary.

If possible do a little driveway or backyard camping. This can help refresh your memory as you get to know your new camper. Enjoy learning about RVing and try not to sweat the small stuff.

Please do report back and let us know how you are enjoying your new RV.

Chuckinca, Long Point is very nice. Lot of waterfront lots, boat ramp, right on the Indian River, close to Sebastian and Vero Beach. We have been there 2 times in the last 2 years. This will be our first long trip and looking forward to it.

Terier, this is our 2nd trailer. we upgraded from a 21 foot Jayco Skylark to the 30 Ft. V-Lite so we can take our dogs with us and we needed more room for us also. We have been going to state parks here in Florida. Now that wife and I are both retired we will be doing more long trips. Thanks for the suggestions.

Oops - sorry about that. You even mentioned it but I missed it. I also like state parks but longer trips sounds even better. BTW pictures are welcome.

Terier: We will be posting pictures. We love to hike and see nature.

Sherdep: Yes Florida has some great state parks. We have been to several including Kissimmee Prairie Preserve State Park (Great for star gazing), Blue Springs, Anastasia, Lake Kissimmee State Park, and several others.
