My wife, Stacey, has always loved camping more but she knows my past included growing up motor or sail boating on inland lakes or cruising the Bahamas
as a kid. We usually owned a cabin cruiser or chartered a larger trawler for many of these trips. We were never a camping family.
So when I got older I bought a sailboat and spent many a weekend and nights all year round "camping" out and sailing with others on my lake.
When we got married, she talked about wanting to go camping but I was never as comfortable about it. SO the RV idea started to ruminate as we talked about buying a larger more comfortable sailboat...
I love the idea now, that we can go ANYWHERE! Plus we can take along our little 19' trailerable sailboat, too!
We just purchased a new-to-us 2013 Coachmen Leprechaun 317SAF 32' Class C motor home! We loved the layout with the side access hallway to the rear of the home, the fully enclosed head/shower and the L shaped galley! The fit and finish is as beautiful as any boat I've owned and we're taking delivery this Saturday! We are also immediately heading out to give her a test run at a near by, well equipped area.
I'll report how it goes!
I've been a member of many many forums for everything from photography, design, computers, music, keyboards, guitars...boating, sailing (still at trailer sailor site these days under our names Patrick & Stacey)... I enjoy learning about my interests AND I GIVE BACK with advice when I can, as I learn and if it's something I know about. I look forward to building the community!
