Finally upgraded from the tent! Happy to be here!

Hello all from WA!
After years of tenting it (I did grow up RV'ing in the 80's with my parents) I have upgraded to 2016 HW296. Last kid graduated and I was the lone one of the friend group (single moms when they got them) who did not have a trailer. Did I bite off more than I can chew? mmmm...maybe but I've had it out twice already and LOVE it. I've crawled under and all around learning (and yes fixing since it was a consignment) but all in all happy to have it and to be a part of this forum. Goodness knows I've been that girl you tubing, looking thru these forums for info and you all are a serious God send.
Cheers and thank you in advance for all the help I will probably need!

Welcome from another Western WA member.
I think our TT is a little smaller, but the DW sure likes it.

Looks great -- but the HW296 is still a tent. So is my Roo and I wouldn't have it any other way!

Camping with a group should give you plenty of support.

lol this is very true. Although now I can actually stand up in it without breaking my back! I'm 6'. Now I just tumble down the stairs rather than roll off the cot and out the zipped door.

Thank you! Yes I know exactly where you are at! I am in Wenatchee. I love that side of our State and have fam over in that area. Plus kids that are at WWU. Would love to hear your suggestions on your fav spots with a TT over there to stay!
