knock knock. not new to camping, but new to doing it solo!

Hello All!

Glad I found this forum. Very excited to have just purchased my "new to me" Forest River Cherokee 25W. I am recently divorced and had to sell my 2012 Gulfstream Amerilite 255BH because (unknown to me) the ex financed it rather than paying the 15k I handed him in cash and we ended up losing money on it! (same deal with my car, but thats a different forum

So hear I am starting over with limited funds but a wide open future! I've been camping since I was born, my father owned an airstream for practically my entire life and much of my childrens lives, but I'm no stranger to primitive/tent camping either! I have my TT on a permanent site but hope to do some travelling with it next season or possibly later this season. I am sure I will be asking LOADS of questions on this forum as I've never handled a TT by myself. So again, super happy to have found the forum!
