Jeeze...all my fellow Coloradoans are beating me to the puch. Hope to get out next week. Got a job over in Montrose. Hopefully the roads and weather will cooperate so I can take the rig.

Darren.....congrads on the new coach!

I hope nobody thinks I'm Hi-Jacking this thread just answering socref01 question.

We like you are about 4 miles from Chatfield. I don't think the engine gets to operating temperature before we arrive. We like it as it's at the base of the foothills and Loop D is good for big rigs (and what ever else). Loop D is also the only loop open all year round. I have never camped at Cherry Creek. I need to check it out.

Socref01,
Hows the Ridgeline handle the TT? We have a Ridgeline also, and I just got around to putting a hitch on it. We pulled a 12' trailer full of wood back from up north and I was pleasently suprised by how it handled.

No problems at this point. Haven't tried any real up hill grades at this point...but 19ft Surveyor follows along nicely. got sway control and additional braking stuff. If Honda made an 8 cylinder, I would be in heaven I believe!

The 23LB is a great camper and will suit our needs well. FYI as you are looking around the forum it is worth noting that the 23LB is virtually identical to the Rockwood 2306.

We were impressed with the quality of the unit and it's weight... it was also a good value.

So far, we've camped 5 nights in the travel trailer. The storage seems more than ample to meet our needs. My wife used some shelves purchased from Target to convert one level of the closet into a pantry... that added an impressive amount of storage for dry goods.

I am trying to talk my wife into a quick trip to Chatfield this weekend...

Good luck with your decision. We are pleased with this camper.
