New to the forums but not to RVing

Hello All!!

Was browsing the forums and liked what I was reading so thought I would join!
I have been camping for MANY years. I remember, before my kids were born, seeing an old camper on the back of an old beat up Chevy pull in,and I thought to myself one day....

First "rig" was an old 79 Lionel tent tent trailer
Shortly after that I upgraded to an old 8' Scamper Camper which I remodeled..and loved
Then I bought a Time Capsule....a 23' Holidaire travel trailer...

Went through a "lifestyle change" and lost the camper and trailer...

Then I bought a old 9' Vangaurd camper that I renovated and flipped to purchase what I have now...a 1993 Skyline Nomad 5th wheel.

Since I am now a blended family of 2 13 year old girls, 2 15 year old boys, a 19 year old boy confined to a wheelchair with CP, my significant other, a Welsh and Airedale Terrier....I obviously needed something ALOT bigger.

So in two days I pick up the new rig, which has only been used once and I picked up for a song...
A 2009 Rockwood 8317SS. I am really excited to get EVERYONE out to enjoy the RV lifestyle!

Here she is sitting on the lot!

Look forward to hearing your stories...and sharing mine!
Cheers
Tim
