We camped in our new 25DS last Friday night. It's parked out at our country home which I am doing some remodeling work on. Makes a nice place to hang out at while I am out there working.
Actually this was our first night in it sort of as a shakedown to see what fits and what else we need.

Just did it this weekend for the maiden voyage of my new A122. It was great. It is a less stressful way to fix up the camper, organize things, and learn what all these buttons and switches do.

Sure do... Got a level concrete pad and 50amp service on the side of our house just for this, I'm tempted to run sewer to it to achieve "full hookup" status but afraid the wife and kids won't want to pull out from the house!

With 2 1/2 months of 95+ degree weather here in Illinois....NO THANKS! Yes I have air, but no I dont have a 30amp hookup. AC is a must in that kind of heat.

I do however park it in my driveway for a week at a time to do some mods and stuff. Thats about all my HOA will allow.

We have our house for sale. We thought we had it sold about a month ago, so we sold off everything inside. The sale fell through. We've been driveway camping for a month now!
