Newbie from Wisconsin.. brrrrr.

After making my wife tent camp with me for years, I was faced with a loving ultimatum: get something more comfy or camp alone. Now, mind you, I don't mind camping alone once in a while, but I do like my wife and daughter to join me as often as possible. So, with that said, after planning for a year (including trading in our car last year for something that can tow a small PUP while look professional for my wife, and checking ads for a used PUP) we finally bought ourselves a new to me 2007 Rockwood Freedom 2270.

I figured I'd join the forum here because I am a bit of a worry wort and will have tons a questions; although, after living in my house for 6 years, apparently when I set up my PUP in the front yard for "test night", my neighbors sure do come and introduce themselves! That was very nice as I ran into a few hiccups and had to knock on my new friend's door for some help.

So we bought it last week, and spend Saturday night "camping" in it to get a real feel for it and to make sure we understood everything... I'd rather do that at home where I can fix what I need to instead of being in the middle of nowwhere. So, the fun part was that we really gave the furnace a run for its money as it was 26 degrees F outside all night and a comfy 58 inside.... I had my bed warmer cranked up to 6 and woke up sweating bullets.

So, in short, GOD I LOVE THIS THING. As hardcore as I am (including my days as a peace corps volunteer in the third world) I do enjoy being comfortable when I camp.

Now, as the worry wort as I am, I already made a date with my wife to go to the outside storage where our camper is parked because I remember a piece of the canvas was hanging out a little when we closed the top and its bugging me now. Unlike Taylor Swift, I can't shake it off.

I look forward to this community!
