1st time

After looking at our new 2608bs for months in our driveway, we finally were able to take it out last weekend. We love it! Click image for larger version

Looks good. Love the pets. Wish I could convince our cat that riding in a car and going camping is fun.
Congratulations on your new rig.

Had our 2608BS out about 4 times now. All in AZ so far. Works great for us. Only thing I feel is lacking is a good mattress for our old aching backs. I have an unused Select Comfort air bed I want to try in it before the next trip. Gotta adapt a 12v or dry cell pump to the air fittings and I'll be set.
Where is that where you camped?

Falconer: Try a foam memory pad for the bed

Falconer,
To save you from having to adapt power for an air mattress you might want to consider a foam memory pad. We bought one for both our RV queen bed and our dinette. We have a wedge bed that "slides" in and out with our slide and it "crunches" up just fine with a 3" thick pad. We found a 1.5" pad for the dinette which we roll up and store on the dinette seats when we're driving and then in passenger foot well when we're stopped. We sometimes need to sleep on the dinette when we can't put our slide out (not level, stealth parking). Beds are both comfy now.

Thank you. We started cat 15 yrs ago in harness so he's used to it. He goes out of camper, eats weeds then helps himself right back into the camper.

When we bought the camper (right before pandemic) we camped in our drive way a few times. Mattress was the first thing we got for it. We bought one for under 200 bucks on amazon and it's amazing. We camped on the Oregon/Idaho border, on the Owyhee river. A trophy river for brown trout.

Lol No the cat is just the leader, not the protector. He let's his servants protect him.

It's on the Owyhee River on the border of Oregon and Idaho. A trophy river for brown trout.

I must say I am impressed. First, by the beauty of that spot. But also, I know lots of folks who camp with their dogs, but that you are able to do so with a free-range cat is pretty cool. Enjoy your trip. It looks like you guys are killin' it! Take it from somebody who has had all their trips Corona-cancelled so far this season... I'm jealous.
