Also new to the boards. Been camping with a 08 Rockwood 8313 for the last 2 years. Now, we are making the jump (look out below) to a Sandpiper 355QBQ. We love the Rockwood, but really looking forward to the bunks, outside kitchen and the overall room for our family. We have 2 boys (13,11) 1 girl (6). I (the wife did) never camped until we bought the rockwood. And now I am totally addicted. That's about all I know. Longest trips we have taken we to Bristol, TN and Talladega,AL (both for races). Now we can take others (besides the kids) with us to enjoy some adult time.
