Welcome to the Forum!

Big change going from a tent to a 34' camper. I think you wisely short-cut the usual progression...tent, pop-up, small TT, bigger TT or 5er. Good job!

WOW!!! That's a big step up from a tent. Way to go. I'm sure you are in for some good trips and hopefully some of them will be here in Ontario. Congratulations and welcome to the forum. Old Guys

Welcome to the forum!
Our family just upgraded from a tent as well and will never look back. Our first trip out was great and the best part was on the last night it was pouring rain. The next morning we just tidied up a bit inside, pulled the slides in, hooked up and drove away. No wet sleeping bags, grumpy kids or unhappy mom and dad from being soaked. Very stress free

thank you eveyone.
we spent a lot of time deciding what to do. we figured it was best for us just to start out with what we would end up in anyway, save the trouble of losing value everytime we upgraded. It did take us 3 years to finally find the trailer we both liked tho. It sure has changed the way we camp , we have been out every weekend this summer. and with the crap weather here in Calgary it has made it way more enjoyable for the 4 of us.
