I have no problem with having to get the bugs worked out of it but the roof leaking is a bug that I could have done without. Also we have been having a blast so far, luckily the roof leak happened about 2 hours before we planned on packing up to head home.

We haven't taken it out yet, nervous, our first time! We live just north of Kingston Ontario and looking for a nice place to take it to for our first trip. We cannot go until the 3rd week end of September. Where in Maine do you recommend? we have no children other than our 2 dogs and like peace and quiet as well as well kept areas, the nicest and more upscale the better
Sorry to say boubou but I don't think I'm the best person to be asking for recommendations for a place to stay. This is our first camper, we have always tented when we went camping and usually stayed where ever. The two times we have been out we first stayed at Poland Spring campground. It was a nice and quiet place close to home for us. The second trip out we stayed at Duck puddle campground, not as nice as Poland Spring and definitely not as quiet. We did have a good time at both places.
two places that I have been told I should try are Lake Pemaquid campground which i hear is very nice and Powder Horn camping resort. Lake Pemaquid is in the mid-coast area of the state and in a very nice area near the coast. Duck puddle campground is at the other end of the lake so we were actually just in the area over the weekend and we always enjoy driving up in that area. Powder Horn is in Old Orchard beach which is a nice area and I think might be more of what you are looking for in a campground. I'll put Links to both below.
If I could give you a word of advice. You should take Your camper someplace local with full hook-ups and at least give everything a thorough once over to be sure you will not have any problems like what we've been going through. As Ovair said earlier get the bugs worked out of the rig and you'll be having a blast. Also there is no need to be nervous, Just take your time and everything will be fine. Be sure to bring your owners manuals with you in case you need it. We needed ours.
