new in Alabama

I have been looking and enjoying this forum since I started looking for a travel trailer last thanksgiving. Well I did lots of looking and found the right one for my wife and I. I wanted under 6000 lbs and a shower, she wanted lots of counter space in the kitchen. We looked at dealers within 150 miles, went to some rv shows and looked lots on the internet. I really liked the forest river and especially the Rockwood. Just can't find them in my area. Then I found a 2012 rockwood 2608ss. We both loved it so now we are the happy owners of our first rv. We have had several pop ups but the wife said she was done camping unless there was a bathroom in the next camper. One thing about this camper is that it has a wardrobe slide and what I read is that didn't come out till 2013. So does that mean I have a 2012.5 Dosen't matter the camper is in really great shape and we are looking foward to spending time in it. What started all this is our granddaughter and her husband bought a tt last year and we wanted to join them. We are planning a trip to the Florida panhandle this summer so new tires are in order. It has the originial ones on it. Looking foward to learning from all of you.

Welcome, and enjoy that camper!

I'm a little too truthful, I guess.
Y'all have fun in "Fantasy Land".
