Two - One to Stay - One to Go

Greetings - We're new to the Forest River world,

We started about 25 years ago with a 14 foot Trillum - - then the family came - and we updated to a 22 Holdaire - which we owned only for a year - as it really was a couples trailer with limited room for the family.

Then a new 2001 829s Prowler Bunk Trailer, that we used to travel all over western Canada - awesome - this was a 30 foot trailer with a dry weight of 4,500 pounds.

As our boys became teenagers - we went to a 2011 32qb Crossroad Bunkhouse with real doors but we rarely moved it and ended up using it primarily on Seasonal Sites. Campgrounds logistics were getting complicated with kayaks, bikes, and of course the boat.

So we ended developing our own seasonal sites
- one is on a little lake five minutes from home - fun for day trips/evening kayaks - in the winter we use it for cross country skiing and snowmobiling.

The second location we set up is on bush land close to 6 of our favorite lakes. This spring we selected a 2015 Coachmen Catalina Destination 39FLFB, the right floorplan and the dealer had priced it when our dollar was stronger.

This summer, my wife and I were travelling - staying in hotels - we concluded that we truly missed having a mobile RV. So this fall we picked up an Airflyte for travelling around.

And that's the story of two

Happy Camping - Can't wait for spring.

Welcome to the forums! Can't wait to hear more about your travels. Is it spring yet?

Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...
