New to Forest River Forums

I'm Donna currently living in Jeff City MO, originally from Sapulpa, OK. Ordered my 3rd RV, 2012 Palomino Ultralite T245. In 2005 sold my house and everything that wouldn't fit in a 2006 Rockwood 26' travel trailer (Thelma) being pulled by a 2001 Explorer Sport Trac (Louise) and headed out. Never even pulled a boat trailer before. Went east to Prince Edward Island and back west to Westport, WA. Did Workamping in AZ & WA and fell in love with the lifestyle. Thelma had a mishap outside Portland, OR in 2006, so bought a 15' Salem and headed back to OK in 2007. Moved to MO in 2008 and went to work for the State. Tree fell on Thelma 2 in July of 2010 and had to move to apartment . Decided to retire in July 2012 and head to Oregon to do Workamping. You folks are awesome in that you offer so much advice in these Forums.
