Hello from Oregon!

We just purchased a Forest River Salem Cruise Lite 263BHXL. You can laugh but the bunks are mostly for our pets not our grandkids!

It gets hot and smokey here the month of August so we will practice some short few days runs before we take off for the month. I already set up two nights on the Oregon Coast next week.

We have never traveled besides moving with our rag doll cat Raggedy Annie but I don't want to leave her for a full month, our 16 month old golden retriever Robbie still chases her so I figured she will need a high area she can feel comfy to sleep all day on.

I really like this model because the bunks are large and you don't have to squeeze to fit in them. Since I will be climbing daily up there to mess with cleaning cat box I need to make it as easy on myself as possible!

And the pantry was a fun surprise, I don't think I will be able to fill it all.

Looking forward to meeting you all and having lots of fun rv trips.

Thanks for all the welcomes. Yes I will be on the road soon, made another reservation today and working on more!

Hubby wants to do a lot of boon docking but I want to mix in plenty of reservations since we are new to everything.

He is afraid of going down logging roads and getting stuck with trailer, does that happen to any of you?

My advice even though logging trucks went down the road before no quarantee that you can until you get more comfortable go scout the site first with out the trailer like I said most within an hour trip maybe 90 minutes if your headed north
