New 2013 Solaire

Hi, We just purchased a new 2013 Solaire 267BHSK. Our family has been camping for many years with two popups destroyed by hurricanes and our most recent camper being a Hybrid Jayco Kiwi 23D. We now have one grandson and felt the setup time and takedown time with the Kiwi was just too much work. Took our new camper out and set up is much easier, no beds to make, etc.We generally try to go somewhere once a month for the weekend and love going to Cades Cove in the Smokey Mountains. We love the darker color and I hope it will make it look cleaner!

Mike and Tammy

Hi there! Sounds like wonderful family memories are already being made in the new Solaire. Pictures are always welcome here.

saw the solaire's at the KC RV show, we were really impressed. I commented to my wife that if we had seen the large bunkhouse model before we saw our current trailer, we would have ended up in the solaire.

Spent a week last March in Ft. Pickens, loved it! Got buzzed by a crazy Navy pilot (my sister) and picked up lots of great stuff to grill at Joe Patti's.

We love Fort Pickens and go about once a month. It was really awesome to be about waist deep in the gulf and have the Blue Angels practice over you and fly right on top of our heads!

Fort Pickens is like our second home! We love that place and the Blue Angels. We try to spend two weeks there every October. Most recently, we were there October & November 2012 and January 2013. Probably met some of you fine folks... We were in our little Lexington with the Missouri plates. We haven't been to Cade's Cove in the Smokeys but love to hear about other campers favorite spots.
