Howdy All!

Per instructions I am stopping in to say hey and introduce myself. My family and I live in Big Rock, IL. My wife Audrey, 14 yr old Joseph, 10yr old Ashley, 3 yr old Xavier and 8 m old Jeremiah.

Camped in a 12' Starcraft popup for 14 years before buying a new travel trailer last year. I bought a new 2010 in 2012 because it had every option I wanted and it was exactly 50% of the 2012 sticker price.

Last year we camped 27 nights. Zero so far this year. I ended up on a weekend schedule and then got sick. Labor Day weekend will be first weekend out. Hope to get 5 weekends in.

Forum has already been very helpful in helping me replace my shore power cord!

Hi there!

Hopefully all will go OK and you can get out & camp. Work schedules sure do get in the way of camping plans. Buying the previous year model can be a great buy.

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