newbie from the rainy PNW

Hey all,

I don't currently own an rv, and I am here to educate myself a bit before I pull the trigger and make a purchase.

I have to say, I'm pretty tired of tent camping - particularly in the winter - and am excited to learn from those of you with more experience.

I look forward to meeting you all.

We are former tent campers who got tired of being hot, cold, wet, and lightning. We decided on a hard sided camper because in humid Houston, drying out a canvas pop up is difficult and we're not a fan of mold and mildew when we camp.

What kind of camper are you considering and what will you be pulling it with?

Hi and Welcome to FRF from Camano Island. It ain't that rainy in Quincy, compared to the West side.

Quincy is not bad for rain, but I have family down in Salem, and I often make the long trek to the Oregon coast where it can rain quite a bit.

I understand completely... I knew 16 years ago on our honeymoon tent camping up the Oregon coast that I would be a trailer owner!😎...you will forever be happy with this decision!

Hello From PNW, Warren, OR.
We are new to travel trailers and I'm sure you will like yours. Hoping for a good albacore season this summer.
