Time to Re-introduce

And we're back
Never did post all that much and last year lost the ah, willingness, to even read the forums. We had a 2017 Cherokee 274DBH and put a lot of klicks on it. Had a lot of use...(Stored for the winter in Oct 2019)
So much so that in 2020 we replaced the tires (upgraded of course), had an alignment done, replaced the batteries etc..
5 days before our first, delayed, trip last June the area was hit with a $1.2bn hailstorm. Almost $20k damage to the trailer so it was written off.
Just as a note, hardly anything in the storage lot with laminate or fiberglas construction had the same kind of damage as almost every tin side RV there. Roofs were another matter.

We were able to borrow a family members Impression fifth wheel for a couple trips but it wasn't really comfortable. Maybe because it wasn't ours, who knows.
Considered several Cherokee models in Black Label but finally went a different way. Sort of.
November we put down a deposit on a 2021 Rockwood 2608BS. Received it in April as promised and had our first shakedown trip last weekend.
This we're comfortable with
First drive with 84kmh crosswinds not as scary as the Cherokee
Looking forward to putting many more miles and locations on this one
