Talking NEW Forum Members

Hello all, just wanted to say hi and introduce ourselves to the group:
We are Paul, Stacy and Alexa from Southern Wisconsin area. We have evolved from tent to pop-up to TT and just this past Saturday, to our first 5th wheeler. We traded our Terry Model 829-T TT for a 2006 Forest River Cardinal 362-BLE 5th wheeler that we keep on a seasonal site near Baraboo, Wisconsin in the famous Wisconsin Dells area. We keep our boat at the site and do a lot of boating on the week-ends on Lake Wisconsin. We have a dog named Lilly (shitzhu) and a cat named Oreo (farm cat) and only Lilly joins us in the camper. We love our seasonal site and have an 8x20' deck adjoining the camper. I am a retired GM for a large electronics company, my wife works in administration at the local clinic/hospital and my daughter is going into 7th grade and is actively involved in softball, basketball, volleyball and conditioning. She is a hoot and is the apple of my eye. We look forward to all of the interesting conversation(s) on this forum and eagerly await any answers to our questions. Because we are new to 5th wheeling, I'm sure we will have many questions, in fact have already posed one on the forum general discussion as we speak. Our set-up is as follows:

2006 Forest River Cardinal Model 362-BLE 5th Wheeler
Location is Wheeler's Campground Hwy 59 Baraboo, Wisconsin
Tow Vehicle is 2008 Chevy Silverado Crew 2500HD with Diesel/Cummins

First of all Welcome.

Confused by a Chevy Silverado with a Cummins in it.
Did you put that beast in yourself?

Welcome to the forum from a fellow Wisconsinite. We took pretty much the same path as you did over many years but added a hybrid between our popup and TT. We live in Ottawa township and have a seasonal site near Montello. Post some pics of your site on the Seasonal camping thread when you can. You can see pics of our place on the photobucket link below.
