I caught the camping bug in florida!!!

Last month I decided to go camping for the first time EVER! I live in Plant City florida so I went to the everglades since I love to fish. Well I had a
7x6 tent lol. It was awesome and scary at the same time. I said I need some walls lol so in less than a month later I traded my 2007 Flats boat that I didn't get to use that much for a new rockwood freedom 2280 pop up camper. I haven't got to use it yet. I have a small 4cyl truck so I had to get supersprings on it, a new hitch, and I'm waiting to get a brake controller installed. I'm excited! I can't wait to go back to the everglades!

Welcome to the FR Forums! And congrats on your new-to-you Rockwood Freedom Popup too. The difference between your tent and the Rockwood will be day & night. I have a feeling you going to really enjoy your RV.

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

Welcome to the forums!

No pictures of a camping bug - but I bet whatever one looks like it will be carrying a big wallet.
