RV rookies in IL

Hello everyone. My wife and I just picked up our first ever camper last week. 2017 Grey Wolf 26ckse. We've been tent campers for years and decided to try out a travel trailer. Had it out for our first weekend and we loved it and, more importantly, the two kids loved it too. Can't wait to make a ton of memories this year and for years to come.

We camped for many years with our family of 6. Best time ever and our kids, now in their 40's, still talk about the wonderful experiences we had during that time as they were growing up.

Welcome from Southern Illinois. We started tent camping with our kids years ago. We've moved up to a 5th wheel but the kids, and now grandkids, still enjoy coming with us. You'll never regret and you'll always treasure memories made with family.

Welcome! We just traded in our Pop-up for a travel trailer. Picking it up tomorrow. We're very fortunate to have teenage girls who still want to camp with their parents! 18 & 15. Fantastic memory maker camping is!

Thanks everyone. Last weekend was great and we can't wait for Friday to get here so we can hit it again. Even had dinner in the trailer tonight. Also started my first mod tonight. Not a great deal of shoe storage so I am pushing back a little wall under the bunks and adding a shelf. Wife was decorating tonight too so it will be our home away from home soon!
